What Is Lotus Biscoff?
Lotus is the name brand of cookie butter and cookies we use in this recipe called Biscoff. The cookie butter Biscoff spread is the same consistency as nut butter and tastes of brown sugar and cinnamon spices.
The Biscoff cookies are crunchy, crisp, and remind me of graham crackers except the flavor is amped up. You can find Lotus brand at most major grocery stores and online (not sponsored by lotus).

Ingredients In A Biscoff Milkshake
This milkshake is 5 simple ingredients! Keep reading for additional notes and potential substitutions on each ingredient.
- Lotus Biscoff Spread: You can find it in the peanut butter and jelly aisle at your grocery store. I recommend using the creamy variety. If you use the crunchy variety it will mostly become creamy in the blender, but you may have chunks of biscoff cookie that get stuck in your straw.
- Lotus Biscoff Cookies: I typically find these in the cookie aisle of the grocery store. Speculoos cookies are a great alternative.
- Vanilla Ice Cream: I like to use vanilla bean ice cream but any vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt, or gelato works.
- Milk: I use full fat but any type of milk will work, almond milk, 2%, oatmilk, etc. Just remember, the higher the fat content in the milk, the creamier the milkshake will be.
- Whipped Cream: Feel free to make your own from scratch, use Reddi Whip, or even Cool Whip.
- Blender or Food Processor: This makes making milkshakes effortless. But, there are directions for making milkshakes without any powered kitchen equipment below.
- Milkshake Glasses: For a classic, diner inspired feel. Feel free to use any type of glass though.
- Straws: I use large bubble tea straws for milkshakes because it makes drinking these so much easier.

Milkshakes Without A Blender
No blender? No problem! Just scoop your vanilla ice cream into a large jar and allow it to soften (you could also microwave it for 10-20 seconds).
Once softened, add your milk and Biscoff spread to the jar. Shake until combined and smooth. Pour it into your fancy rimmed milkshake glass and garnish.
4 Tips For the Best Biscoff Milkshake
Even though this recipe is super simple, I do have 4 things you need to know about this Lotus Biscoff Milkshake recipe.
1. CHILL YOUR MILKSHAKE GLASS after decorating the rim, while you make the milkshake, to keep it colder longer.
2. SOFTEN THE ICE CREAM so you have a super creamy and well incorporated milkshake. The best way to do this is to scoop the ice cream right into your blender and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
3. CAN’T FIND LOTUS BISCOFF? No problem! You can use cookie butter spread, a lot of people like the one from Trader Joe’s. As for the cookies, you can use speculoos cookies, graham crackers, or ginger snaps. They will not taste exactly like Lotus Biscoff but it will be close.
4. THROW IN SOME ADD-INS: crushed Biscoff cookies, ground cinnamon, chocolate or caramel sauce, and even banana tastes great in this!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
For this milkshake, I recommend vanilla frozen yogurt or frozen vanilla greek yogurt. You can also make a banana nice cream. All of the options have the same great consistency needed for this milkshake.
I do not recommend doing this, it is best served as soon as it is blended. You can prep the ingredients ahead of time though! I like to rim my glass, have my ice cream scooped, and everything else portioned out.
