I recently won Nom Yourself’s Birthday Contest on Instagram for this photo and recipe!! I thought I’d share the recipe with you all as well! Enjoy! 🙂 This milkshake definitely has some boys interested! 😉 It reminds me of cookies and cream milkshakes I used to love!


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup vegan soyfree butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 6 scoops of non- dairy vanilla ice cream (I used half of the carton of Trader Joe's Soy Vanilla Ice Cream)
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk


Step 1

Combine first 5 ingredients, and stir very well. In a separate bowl, combine vanilla extract, melted butter, 3 tbsp vanilla almond milk, and maple syrup for the cookies. Mix wet into dry to form a dough, then refrigerate 30 minutes before baking.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Roll dough into one big ball, then roll out into a thin dough, and cut flat circles using a circle cutter or a small dry measuring cup upside down. (My cookies were about a 2" diameter). Bake on a Silpat or greased cookie tray for 10 minutes; they’ll still look a little underdone when they come out of the oven, but that’s ok.

Step 3

Allow to cool 10 minutes before removing from the tray. Allow to dry out to make crispy either in the oven with the heat off, or overnight. They need to be slightly crunchy enough for the shake.

Step 4

Pour 1 cup milk into blender. Add ice cream and 4 of the previously made cookies and blend. Enjoy! Repeat with other half of the carton, another cup of milk, and 4 more cookies for two more servings.
