It was the eve of our New Year (for the Hindus) and everybody at home was busy cleaning. The screen showed 27 degrees but it seemed way hotter. I immediately thought that it was the right time to make a super cookie shake for my family with them constantly coming to the kitchen for cold drinks and it was tea time too.
I wanted to make raspberry and ice cream smoothie however my local supermarket ran out of them so I tried chocolate cookie smoothie. This was ideal to beat the terrible heat and refresh.
I’ve used only 3 ingredients for that, chocolate chip cookie, semi skimmed milk and ice cream (inspired by Millies Cookies’ cookie shake…sssh!).
- 2-3 cookies
- 1 tsp almond powder
- ¾ mug of semi-skimmed milk (any milk is fine)
- 3 ice cream balls - used vanilla and peach one
Optional :Tiny cake decoration candies
- Crush the cookies and toss them in the blender
- Add in milk, almond powder, 2 ice cream balls
- Blend blend blend for a while
ina mug, add the last ice cream ball on top or whipped cream. Lastlydecorate with the tiny cake candies
To serve and drink immediately.
You can choose any ice cream that you prefer. I had the peach and vanilla one at home. Adding some ice cream on top is a way of playing with the taste. You can also substitute the mini candies for chocolate chips. As you know almond is extremely nutritious, adding powdered almond is a great way to make the kids have them if they don’t like to eat it raw.
Cheers ! 🙂
I will try the raspberry one next time.
