Girl Scout Cookies Milkshake

Girl Scount Cookie Shakes

I love this time of year.  It’s time for Girl Scout cookies!

I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout growing up and so were both of my girls.  I loved being their leader too.  But the best part of being part of the Girl Scouts is definitely the cookies!   I loved going around with my girls as they sold cookies door to door.  Unlike other types of sales people, people are actually excited to see a Girl Scout selling cookies.  Well, at least I am.  Fortunately for me I still have a cute little girl at church who calls me every year to buy cookies.  Not sure what I’m going to do when she outgrows Girl Scouts!!

My favorite Girl Scout cookie hands down is Thin Mints.  I buy boxes of them and stash them in the freezer.  Thin Mints are best eaten frozen.  So that got me to thinking.  If they are so good frozen, what would they be like in a milk shake?  I was first introduced to baked goods in milk shakes by Sammy’s in Provo Utah.  They use both cupcakes and pies.  I have even made my own version at home with a Pumpkin Pie Shake.

So I decided to give it a try and guess what – it’s amazing!  I had a box of Thin Mints and a box of Tagalongs (my second favorite cookie)  Tessa had taken all the Samoas back to school with her so I couldn’t try Samoas but I’m sure they would be amazing too.

Girl Scout CookiesI got out my trusty old Vitamix but you could use your blender too and filled it with ice cream, milk and cookies.  I used 4-5 cookies for each shake for just the right texture and flavor.

The first Girl Scout Cookie Shake I made was a Tagalong one.

For the Tagalong Cookie Shake I chose chocolate ice cream.

Two cups of ice cream, a cup of milk and 4 Tagalong cookies was just the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

Tagalong Cookie ShakeI love the flavor and the texture that the cookies gave the milkshake.  It tasted just like a Tagalong cookie with the creaminess and yumminess of ice cream!

Tagalong Cookie ShakeNext up was the Thin Mint Cookie Shake.  Pretty much pure heaven.

I added five cookies into this one for just that extra bit of cookie crunch and flavor.

    Those look delicious. I love the thin mint cookies as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have any, nor do I know of anyone selling any. I don’t know many people here since we moved back in July.

    I was a girl scout too! :)

    I was also a GS Leader for both my daughters. That was 10 years ago. We have fond memories of selling cookies and having cases and cases of cookies in our dining room for a few weeks. My favorite has always been Tagalongs and cant wait to make that shake! If you need your cookies, you can always go to Fred Meyer on the weekends! (I never get called anyone!)
