Speculoos Cookie Butter Smoothie Recipe

Speculoos Cookie Butter Smoothie Recipe

My husband and I finally made our first trip to a Trader Joe’s several weeks ago. Trader Joe’s grocery stores have found their way into North Texas, but the closest one is still 45 minutes from where we live. I was most excited to check out their snack selection (it’s obviously not very practical to go that far to buy refrigerated and frozen groceries). I picked up a handful of items to try out, including Roasted Coconut Chips (large pieces of roasted coconut, flavored lightly with sugar and salt – YUM!) and their famous Cookie Butter.

Trader Joe’s cookie butter is what brings us here today. Have you tried it? I’ve heard people rave about it and, the truth is, it really is so addicting. It’s a spread that tastes similar to sugar cookie dough or graham crackers, with a peanut butter-like consistency. Instead of eating the whole jar with a spoon, I came up with this cookie butter flavored smoothie!

This cookie butter and oats smoothie tastes kind of like a cookie milkshake. Maybe I should’ve named it a milkshake, but there’s no ice cream in this drink, so I’ve decided that the smoothie title was justified. This snack may be sweet but it’s still healthier than a milkshake, at least that’s what I like to tell myself.

  1. I’m addicted to those roasted coconut chips as well. Try them on chocolate ice cream for a vacation for your tastebuds! I LOVE the idea of a cookie butter smoothie too! I like dipping apples in cookie butter, so I’m betting a blended in apple would taste pretty awesome too (always trying for that extra fruit!)

    1. I love the sound of coconut chips on ice cream, I’ll try that! I also need to try dipping apples with cookie butter, I’ve been trying to think of semi-healthy ways to enjoy it.

    Oh my goodness. I have a feeling if I made this I would be addicted. I have been dying to try cookie butter for the longest time! I figure anything with the words “cookie” and “butter” in the title is a keeper.

    1. It really is so good! I could seriously eat the whole jar with a spoon (not all at once, of course)! :)

    I love cookies butter. Would like to try this but don’t like almond milk. Wonder how it would be with regular whole milk

    1. I’m sure it’d be great with whole milk or half-and-half cream!
