banana pudding milkshake

Hi. It’s me and I’m here with an announcement. I have accidentally created a milkshake that tastes exactly like banana pudding.

*insert two minute pause to allow time for the standing ovation that you are surely giving me right now*

Oh wait, what’s that? You think banana pudding is disgusting? Well I think you’re disgusting.


But seriously, do you think that? Because if so this milkshake might just convince you to give the ol’ banana pudding another try.

I wasn’t trying to make a banana pudding milkshake. I was trying to make a cookie milkshake, which is awesome but not nearly as awesome as realizing that when you put Biscoff Cookies, vanilla ice cream, vanilla soy milk, Biscoff Spread and a banana together it tastes like your favorite dessert of ALL TIME!

And by “your favorite dessert” I mean my favorite dessert. And by “dessert” I actually mean meal, because I could eat the stuff for breakfast, brunch, lunch, lupper, dinner, snack, midnight snack, etc.

So here’s a cookie milkshake that tastes like banana pudding! Now if I can just come up with an actual vegan banana pudding recipe…


Banana Pudding Milkshake
Serves 1-2
Printable recipe


  • 4 Biscoff Cookies, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1 cup vanilla soy ice cream
  • 1 tablespoon Biscoff Spread
  • 1/2 chopped banana (NOT frozen)

Save one of the crumbled cookies for topping the milkshake.
Place all other ingredients in a blender.


Sprinkle some extra cookies on top, do a quick happy dance, and drink.

Now do a longer, more intense happy dance incorporating intermediate level gymnastics until you find yourself so exhausted that you have no choice but to snuggle up with your favorite rolling pin and take a nap.


NOTE: The images in this post show Trader Joe’s Speculoos cookies, but those have been confirmed as not vegan, since the sugar used is processed through bone char. Total bummer.

    • OMG Ashley. Biscoff Spread is one version, and then the Trader Joe’s version is called Speculoos Cookie Butter. The Biscoff is more expensive (it is at Union Market anyway, it’s like $7) but it’s also smoother, although that is probably because of the extra chemicals and preservatives. It’s so good on a spoon or in cookies or on fruit. I love it with all my heart and soul.

  1. This post really made me chuckle – especially the cat pic!

    Alas, in London we have no such thing as cookie butter. I have managed to survive many years not knowing it existed, yet now I see it before me, I REALLY want some!

    • I second that! Possibly good the UK doesn’t have cookie butter, one more thing to get me fat haha.

  2. OH MA GAH! I absolutely HAVE to make this soon. I am completely addicted to the crunchy version of the Biscoff spread, which would be absolutely perfect for this shake. I’m dying to make this!!

  3. Mmmmmmm biscoff + milkshake + bananas! The only problem is I always open the biscoff cookies as a snack on the way home from the store, and then suddenly have the package is gone and i’m still on the subway. At least I still have the dignity to not do that with the ice cream…

  4. Hi Nikki,

    Love your blog! I’ve seen several versions of banana pudding but never actually made it. Which version are you trying to re-create?


    • Hi Lea! You have a good point, I didn’t say what version of banana pudding I accidentally imitated. I’m thinking of the kind with repeated layers of nilla wafers, banana instant pudding and sliced bananas. And then of course whipped cream on top :)

  5. i honestly cannot handle how delicious this milkshake looks. if i were to make this, i’m pretty sure i’d eat the entire thing and then go and make another.

    that first photo is unbelievable. it’s truly the definition of food porn.

  6. Oh my stars, I want to taste that. I’m not sure if I’m a fan of banana pudding, never had it. But there’s only one way to find out, right? On another note, I ADORE cookie butter, but end up eating it all with a spoon before ever getting a chance to bake with it.

  7. I just made this and downed it in approximately 7.5 seconds. So, so good! It really does taste like banana pudding!

  8. I could kiss you on the lips for this recipe! We are on our second jar of Biscoff spread in just three weeks. There may need to be an intervention.

  10. This sounds so amazing! Just a heads up (and I’m sorry to be the one to say this) Trader Joe’s confirmed last year that the sugar used in their speculoos cookie butter contains bone char and is therefore not vegan. :(

    • Aaaaaahhh noooooo! You’re right. I just skipped around the internets for a couple minutes and found the same info. Luckily for us all Biscoff is still vegan, although a bit more pricey. I’ve updated the recipe to reflect this sad news. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention!
