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
- 3/4 mug of semi-skimmed milk (any milk is fine)
- 3 ice cream balls – used vanilla and peach one
- <g class=”gr_ gr_37 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_run_anim Style multiReplace” id=”37″ data-gr-id=”37″>Optional :</g> 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
- Pour <g class=”gr_ gr_33 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace” id=”33″ data-gr-id=”33″>in</g> a mug, add the last ice cream ball on top or whipped cream.

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.
