This Dairy-Free Cookie Dough Milkshake recipe is completely decadent in flavor. It is the perfect Summer (or Year-round if you're the ultimate foodie) frozen treat with a nice burst of cookie dough flavor, creamy dairy-free base, and topped with a velvety coconut whipped cream, chopped chocolate, and coconut flakes. Super easy and quick to make, with only a handful of ingredients. Entirely dairy-free with a nut-free option.
We're officially in the month of August and summer is unfortunately drawing to a close, but I had to create this Dairy-Free Cookie Dough Milkshake for all of my milkshake lovers out there. I can admit that I've enjoyed creating new summer-inspired recipes and re-creating old ones, however, it's time to begin prepping for the Fall season and all the spices/flavors it entails.
If you've been an avid follower of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you'll know that this isn't my first milkshake recipe (although it's been a while) and it probably won't be my last. Haha. I just love milkshake recipes because they are SUPER EASY to make, but also just so damn good. Don't you agree? This milkshake in particular was originally inspired by my Perfect Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies however, I have since transitioned into a more cookie dough like flavor with hints of coconut which is SO delicious!
Trust me----they're even more perfect in this milkshake!
While I do have other favorite milkshakes like my Oreo milkshake or Easy Peanut Butter Chunky Monkey Milkshake, I figured that Chocolate Chip Cookies or cookie dough of some sort are just sometimes better-----so why not!
While milkshakes seem fancy when they're from a creamery, they are so easy to make yourself. All you need is a high-powered blender and some of your favorite ingredients.
All milkshakes begin with ice cream. You can make the dairy-free ice cream yourself or use your favorite store-bought variety. Make sure to use a type of ice cream that you really enjoy, as it is the base for the milkshake.
Next, you'll need to decide on flavorings. If you want additional elements, add them here. You can add chocolate, vanilla extract, fruit, candy, flavored syrups, or anything else you enjoy---depending on the recipe.
The ingredients for this creamy Dairy-Free Cookie Dough Milkshake are simple and easy to find. Here’s what you need:
When it comes to vegan milk options, there are so many possibilities. From oat milk (which I use in this recipe) soy milk to nut milk to the newest trend, potato milk, you can find a delicious plant-based option you love. And what makes these milks even better? You can make them from scratch at home! All of these dairy-free milk recipes will work for this Milkshake recipe:
If for any reason you aren't able to use a blender, you can still enjoy this delicious Cookie Dough Milkshake. Instead, you can use a hand-mixer and have a perfectly whipped milkshake on hand.
To start, using an electric hand-mixer, whip on low-speed the milk, softened ice cream, vanilla, and salt, whipping until smooth and combined. That simple!
Add your Dairy-Free Cookie Dough Milkshake to your fave glass(es), top with ingredients and wallah!
Best if consumed right away. If not, ensure that milkshake is stored in an air-tight container or mason jar and kept in the freezer. To thaw out, remove milkshake from freezer and place in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes for a creamy consistency.
