This sweet and creamy Gingerbread Milkshake will make you want to skip straight to dessert!
Few things in life make me happier than a thick, creamy milkshake. When my sister and I were little kids, we would save up our Halloween chocolate bars just so we could make milkshakes with them. Butterfinger was probably my favorite, and I would bang the candy bar on the counter with Mom’s meat mallet until it was broken into nice, little pieces. Then the candy went into a blender with vanilla ice cream and milk, and when I pressed the “on” button… pure magic would happen. It is probably one of my favorite memories of being in the kitchen as a child!
Now that I’m an adult, my love affair with milkshakes is still going strong, and although I don’t indulge in them often, I do enjoy making them for the boys, especially as special treats around the holidays. So today I thought I’d share one of my FAVORITE recipes with you guys that is super festive and super easy to make: Gingerbread Milkshakes!
This tasty treat has all the spice and flavor of a delicious gingerbread cookie and whips together in probably less than 60 seconds. It’s made with a combination of vanilla ice cream, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, Biscoff spread (or cookie butter for you Trader Joe fans) and cold, refreshing milk. And if you want to make your milkshake extra special, follow my instructions for adding a gingerbread rim to your glass! It adds a fun, festive touch when serving these at a party!
