Speculoos Ice Cream Recipe

Speculoos Cookie Ice Cream

Speculoos cookies are spiced European shortbread cookies, common in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany and generally eaten around Christmas. Personally, I don’t care for them that much, but Speculoos Cookie Butter is one of my favorite foods ever. It’s equally as delicious as Nutella, though a completely different flavor. You can put it on anything, but I prefer to eat it plain by the spoonful. Obviously, I had to turn it into ice cream, which is more socially acceptable to eat by the spoonful.

Speculoos Ice Cream


  • 2-3/4 cups half and half
  • 1 cup Trader Joe's Cookie Butter (or other speculoos cookie butter)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 speculoos cookies smashed into bite size pieces


  1. Blend everything except cookies until smooth.  We recommend and love our Ninja Blender!

  2. Chill in the fridge.
  3. Churn ice cream! Add speculoos cookie bits in last 2 minutes of churning.
