Stay cool this summer with this Espresso Cookies and Cream Milkshake! Chocolate sandwich cookies are blended with vanilla ice cream, espresso and milk for one simple yet incredible icy treat. Serves 1 or 2 that is if you feel like sharing.
Craving a milkshake? Same here.
And I can’t think of a better way to start off summer vacation than with a icy cold shake! Malloree is now officially a senior in high school and our oldest, Haileigh, is a junior in college. Say what? When I first started this blog, they were 9 and 6. Weird how they get older and yet I still stay the same age. Anyhoo, if there is one thing that remains the same, is our love for homemade milkshakes.
Mal has recently been on the cookies and cream milkshake kick and together we collaborated on this espresso ditty.
Espresso infused cookies and cream milkshake. YES PLEASE.
To Make An Espresso Cookies and Cream Milkshake You Will Need:
- chocolate sandwich cookies – It’s not cookies and cream without them.
- espresso shot – You want this to be brewed strong.
- milk – Keeps it creamy while thinning the shake out to a creamy consistency.
- vanilla extract – Adds warmth and enhances the flavors in this milkshake.
- vanilla ice cream – I used vanilla bean, but use one you love.
- whipped cream – This is for serving and is totally optional.
- chocolate syrup – Also for serving and is optional.
Add 3 chocolate sandwich cookies to your blender. This recipe calls for 4 cookies, but I add 3 to the shake and then crumble one and stir it in later. If you want to add all in here for a smooth shake, go for it!
Next, add in 1 shot (1/4 cup) strongly brewed espresso. We brew ours in our Keurig, however instant is fine too.
2 tablespoons whole milk.
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract.
And a generous cup of vanilla ice cream.
Blend until smooth.
Lastly, I like to stir in an extra 1 (or 2) crushed cookies.
Pour the espresso cookies and cream shake into a glass and top with whipped cream and chocolate sauce.
The subtle coffee flavor and the cookies and cream together is the absolute best.
