Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Milkshake

Happy National Chocolate Chip Day!! To celebrate the awesomeness of the Chocolate Chip……we of course wanted to make some Chocolate Chip cookies. But, instead of actually cooking them, we wanted to try something even better!!! Check out this easy recipe we have for you today.

Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Milkshake!! - A delicious milkshake recipe perfect for a summer dessert!

Are you like us and eat and eat most of the Cookie Dough batter before the cookies hit the oven? If so, then you gotta try this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Milkshake!! What a better combo – our favorite chocolate chip cookie dough & our homemade vanilla ice cream!

During the hot summer one of our favorite treats to make is ice cream!! For that reason, we bought – which is now one of our favorite small kitchen appliances – an Ice Cream Maker! We’ve tried vanilla & chocolate ice cream, fresh fruit ice cream – strawberries and peaches (fresh peach ice cream – our FAVORITE – I will post that recipe when fresh peaches are in season!). We have added cookies and candies, and we have on our list to try some yummy fresh sorbet!!

We have found a few tricks with making homemade ice cream – you need to chill or freeze everything before making your ice cream. So the Little Chefs made the Vanilla ice cream base, then put it in the fridge for at least  3 hours before adding to the Ice Cream Maker. We also keep the bowl of the Ice Cream Maker in the freezer at all times. The bowl needs to be frozen before you make your ice cream.

Same rule for the Cookie Dough. We made the cookie dough and placed small bite-size pieces in the freezer. We first put them on a flat sheet and flash froze them for a few minutes – then transfered them to a bowl, covered and froze. We altered our favorite cookie recipe to taste better with the vanilla ice cream, and made a 1/2 batch.

Once everything was nice and cold, or frozen…..the Little Chefs poured the Vanilla ice cream base into the Ice Cream Maker. We let that go for a while, once the ice cream had thickened, we added the frozen pieces of cookie dough. If you let it get too thick, you will need to use a spoon rather than a straw to eat it!

This is now one of my Little Chefs favorite shakes! The cookie dough pieces did get stuck in the straw a couple times, but that did not stop them, or me!! I was hoping they would not finish their shakes, I would have helped them!!

Summertime and warm weather is a perfect time to indulge yourself in some delicious milkshakes. So bust out the ice cream makers and blenders and make up some yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Milkshakes!! Also – check out our Summer Calendar – it is filled with pages of fun ideas and activities for your kids to do this summer!! If you are not a fan of cookie dough, try out our Vanilla Milkshake!

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
