Recently a friend of mine treated me to lunch at Steak 'n Shake. After deciding what we would order for lunch, we started to look at all the milk shake flavors they had to offer.
Sooooo many flavors and then....I couldn't believe my eyes---cookie butter! Cookie butter was a milk shake flavor! It was new! I was skeptical at first. I thought what if they ruin it?? What if it has an artificial taste??
Instead, I was going to order a tried and true flavor like mint chip or Oreo cookie. At the last minute I told myself to just try it and so I did!! I can't even begin to explain what was happening in my mouth. It was definitely the best thing that has ever happened to it!
Once I got home I told my whole family about it. I was going to take them there to try it and I knew it would be the best thing that has ever happened to them! It didn't occur to me to try and make it at home...at first.
Then I had a light bulb moment----I had vanilla frozen yogurt, cookie butter, cookies that make cookie butter and of course ice and milk...oh and I added vanilla extract to bump up the flavor. I wasn't sure exactly what Steak 'n Shake did, but I was going to try and replicate it.
I even told my husband it probably won't be as good, but it can't be bad. IT WAS AMAZING! LIKE PERFECT!
COOKIE BUTTER MILK SHAKE
- 2 cups of milk (you can substitute with almond milk)
- 1 cup of ice
- 1 1/2 cups frozen vanilla yogurt (you can use ice cream, I happen to have frozen yogurt)
- 1/2 cup cookie butter*
- 8 cookies
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend for approximately 30 seconds.
It's that easy!
Serve in a glass and enjoy!
*I use to only buy Trader Joes brand cookie butter and for the first time I tried the original brand Lotus. It is very yummy! It even comes in crunchy!
