A Girl Scout Cookie Milkshake is the perfect place to dunk a Tagalong cookie! An easy dessert recipe that the whole family will enjoy as a special treat, this Girl Scout Cookie milkshake recipe uses chocolate, peanut butter, and Tagalong cookies.
I love Girl Scout cookies- I have the best memories of my sister and me begging my mom for at least one after dinner. I will never forget when I started to have my own money and could buy them myself- there were too many cookies hidden in my room for a year or so there!
Girl Scout cookies are still such a fun indulgence for me as an adult- even though admittedly I have to eat them way less frequently the older I get. This year, I was craving a milkshake AND Girl Scout cookies, so I decided to combine the two into a Tagalong Girl Scout Cookie Milkshake. It’s deliciously deadly- a new classic for Casa Pura Vida!
The Tagalog cookies- now officially called “Peanut Butter Patties” are a my favorite Girls Scout cookie. Take a simple round shortbread cookie and add a peanut butter filling. The whole thing is chocolate coated using the best milk chocolate known to man. (Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration but I do really love the coating.)
This Girl Scout Cookie Milkshake is sure to be as big of a hit with your family as it was with mine. Here’s the easy recipe.
Girl Scout Cookie Milkshake Recipe
- vanilla ice cream
- cold milk
- Tagalong Girl Scout cookies
- creamy peanut butter
- chocolate syrup
- whipped cream
Add all of the ingredients to the blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve topped with whipped cream and half of a Tagalong cookie. Serve cold- preferably with a straw!
If you want to cut down on the sugar content by a bit, you can substitute sugar- free peanut butter powder in for the creamy variety.
While I enjoy using whole milk in this recipe, the same amounts of skim, almond, and soy milk are also great options.
Chocolate ice cream can be used in place of vanilla if you’re looking for a slightly richer flavor.
You could also use white chocolate syrup in this recipe, or use the peanut butter sandwich cookies if you can’t find Tagalongs or it’s not girl Scout cookie season.
If you happen to have some Reese’s peanut butter cups on your hands, be sure to toss a few into the mix for some more chocolate-peanut buttery goodness! Depending on your preference, you can also vary the amounts of chocolate syrup and peanut butter you put into the shake.
This recipe works with both Trefoils and Samoas, the latter of which makes for a delicious toasted coconut and chocolate milkshake!
This would be awesome also to use Thin Mints for a Thin Mint milkshake.
Pour your milkshake into a tall glass and serve with a dollop of whipped cream or cool whip on top. An extra drizzle of chocolate syrup doesn’t hurt, nor does a half Tagalong cookie for a garnish!
Since the company’s rebranding campaign, Tagalongs are often referred to now as “Peanut Butter Patties.” They still taste just as good, though!
