One of the best part time jobs I had as a teenager was working at an ice cream stand. I had so much fun with the people I worked with and who doesn’t love being around ice cream all summer long?. I loved making huge sundaes, trying to make them as fancy as I could. I also loved making frappes and trying out different combinations with different ice cream flavors. Tips were a nice bonus too. Man, when I have a rough day at work I wouldn’t mind going back to an ice cream stand.
So a few blog posts ago I talked about the amazing Speculoos Cookie Butter that I got from my first shopping trip to Trader Joe’s. Well, I decided to make a frappe with it. And this was a good decision. I am getting ready to go back to work next week (so sad) so I have been trying to use Luke’s nap time to prep instead of bake (even sadder). Therefore, I wanted to make something quick and easy.
Frappes (and smoothies) have got to be one of the easiest things to make. You really can’t screw it up and you can be as creative as you want with it. So for this, I used vanilla ice cream, whole milk, and chocolate syrup along with the cookie butter.
Here is my recipe for Extra-Thick Cookie Butter Frappe:
- 3 scoops vanilla ice cream
- ¼ cup Speculoos Cookie Butter (and a spoonful for yourself)
- 1 tbsp chocolate syrup
- 2 tbsp whole milk
Just throw it all in a blender and mix!
Yum! You can see how thick it is from how it is sticking to the glass…so good!
This recipe makes one serving but can easily be doubled. The frappe came out very thick but that is how I like it. You can easily adjust how thick it is by the amount of ice cream and/or milk you add to it.
If you haven’t yet, I hope you try cookie butter and love it as much as I do!
