Why You'll Love This Biscoff Milkshake
I seem to have a habit of making shakes out of my favourite biscuits - I'm looking at you Oreo smoothie. But really, who could blame me?
What is Biscoff?
If you’ve never tried Biscoff biscuits, come sit by me. We need to talk.
Biscoff biscuits are wonderfully moorish caramelised shortcrust biscuits with a hint of cinnamon. They have a gorgeous crunchy bite and if they are your thing - which they are mine - you'll be hard pressed to stop at one. Or five.
Made by Belgian biscuit company Lotus since 1932, Biscoff biscuits are designed to be served alongside coffee. You can find them served in cafes in Europe on the plate next to a hot drink.
The Biscoff spread, which we are using to make our Biscoff milkshake, is kind of like peanut butter but with a sweet spiced caramel flavour. To make the spread (which comes in crunchy and smooth), Biscoff biscuits are crushed up into a smooth paste similar to how we make almond or cashew butter.
Oh, and it's free of nuts and vegan. Ding, ding, ding...we have a winner.
What You'll Need
Dairy-free milk. Because we want our milkshake thick and delicious, not watery and sad, choose a milk with a bit of body. Oat milk and soy milk are great in shakes. Coconut milk has the consistency we want but tends to take over the flavour. Make sure your milk is ice-cold.
Vegan ice-cream. A good quality vanilla ice-cream is perfect here. I love Oatly vanilla ice-cream and, specifically in Australia, Over the Moo vanilla or caramel (not a paid link)
Update. I just tried this with Pana Organic Vanilla Bean vegan ice-cream (not a paid link) and it was ridiculous! So creamy and delicious.
Biscoff Of course! While I prefer the smooth spread, by all means use the crunchy if texture is your thing.
Salt. Just a tiny touch to bring out those flavours.
Ice. Optional for extra chill.
How to Make a Biscoff Milkshake
You'll find full instructions and measurements in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
I'm not going to lie, there is not much to making this Biscoff milkshake. Simply throw the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and delicious.
I've left instructions for a Biscoff drizzle in the recipe card below if you want to take your vegan shake to the next level.
Tips for the Ultimate Milkshake Experience
Sorry, no. Biscoff spread is made with wheat flour biscuits and as far as I know they don't make a gluten-free version.
Weeeeellll...yes. I guess. If you have to. You can use an organic no-sugar added milk and halve the ice-cream amount and swap it for frozen yoghurt. Having said that, this is a proper milkshake with no claims to healthy living. This shake is all about feeding your soul and pandering to your inner child.
Now you're speaking my language. To make a Biscoff thick shake, reduce the milk by half and bump up the ice-cream to 3 cups. You made need to add a little more Biscoff to make sure the flavour isn't swamped by the other ingredients.
I use and prefer the smooth spread but if you can totally use the crunchy variety for added texture.

Optional Biscoff Drizzle
- To take this Biscoff shake to the next level, pop around ¼ cup of Biscoff spread in a microwavable bowl and heat in 10 seconds increments until the spread is pourable.
