If you are looking for other ways to use Biscoff, then why not try our Easy Biscoff Mug Cake recipe?
- Vanilla ice cream - Use a good quality vanilla ice cream, preferably one that is made with vanilla extract or pods.
- Milk - We used semi-skimmed to save few calories, but whole milk will give you a richer flavour. For dairy free milk, soy milk is best, but any nut milk or oat milk will work.
- Biscoff spread - The star of the recipe. There are many shop's own brand "caramelised biscuit spread", but stick with the original if you can. We used the smooth spread, but the crunchy version will also work. If you have difficulty finding this in the US, then you can use Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter.

What is Biscoff?
If you have never had Biscoff before, then you are seriously missing out. If you are reading this recipe, then chances are you already know what Biscoff is and you are already a big fan. Biscoff is a peanut butter like spread that is made from speculoos cookies and gets its name from the combination of the words biscuit and coffee. Speculoos are buttery, brown sugar and spice-flavoured cookies and these are turned into an amazing spread.
To lighten up this Biscoff milkshake, you could use a low fat ice cream, or even frozen yogurt instead of the vanilla ice cream. You could add banana for sweetness, so don't worry about it not being sweet enough.
You could leave the ice cream out but it wouldn't be very thick and creamy. If you do this, then blend some ice cubes with it to keep it nice and cold.
What to serve with Biscoff Milkshake
We think this is pretty perfect on it's own, however if you wanted to serve it with another sweet treat, then we have lots of delicious options for you. Why not try one of these:
- Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
- Apple Turnovers

- Chocolate Flapjacks
- Orange Drizzle Cake

This is best drank straight away, so try to only make it right before you want to use it. But luckily it only takes a couple of minutes to make, so just make sure to only make as much as you need so there are no leftovers.
However, if you do have some leftover, then you can store it in the fridge. You could also make the milkshake lollies we have mentioned in the FAQs below.
Frequently Asked Questions
We fully believe that life is all about balance and that your diet should be looked at as individual meals. A Biscoff milkshake every now and then isn't going to do any harm and good food (and drink) is good for the soul. However, this is far from nutrient dense. It is high in calories and fat, and that's what makes it so delicious. We have given some swaps above to lighten it up a little.
Yes, you can melt it in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until it goes runny. This is what we have done to make it easy to drizzle on top. There is no need to melt it for the actual milkshake though, as it will all get blended up.
If you haven't got any ice cream, then you can blend up some ice cubes, sugar, a dash of vanilla extract and a little extra milk to replace it. You could use some heavy cream if you wanted to match the creaminess of ice cream.
If you want your Biscoff milkshake extra thick, then you will need to add some more vanilla ice cream to it. This will change the nutritional information though.
If you like a lumpy milkshake, then only blend it for 20-30 seconds. However, if you want it nice and smooth then you can blend it for at least a minute.
We use either a jug or stick blender to make this, however you can make it without a blender if you don't have one. First you need to soften the ice cream and biscoff in the microwave for 15 seconds. Add the biscoff and ice cream to a jar with a lid, add the milk and then put the lid on and shake very, very quickly until everything is mixed together and you have a milkshake. Use a blender for best results. We recommend the NutriBullet blender.
If you use a vegan milk and ice cream, then this can be vegan.
No, sadly this isn't gluten free.
Pour this mixture in to your favourite lolly moulds and then pop in the freezer for a few hours. It's a great for a summer treat.
• For best results, chill you glasses in the freezer before making this Biscoff milkshake. This will ensure your milkshake stays cooler for longer.
• If you have difficulty finding Biscoff spread in the US, then you can use Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter.
• When blending, put the ice cream into the blender first. Then the milk followed by the Biscoff spread. This prevents the spread sticking to the bottom of the blender.
• Soften the ice cream at room temperature for about 10 minutes before blending. This allows the milkshake to blend easily.
• If you want really cold milkshake, then you can use slices of frozen banana. make sure you use a high powered blender, as it will be harder to blend them when they are frozen. You could always add a couple of ice cubes to make it cold too.
• You can use cinnamon to add a little extra flavour, or you could swap it for ginger or nutmeg.
• If you want some texture to your milkshake, then you can blend some crushed Lotus Biscoff biscuits in to it.
