Biscoff Shakes

A smooth, creamy, and refreshing milkshake!  Flavored with Biscoff cookie butter spread, this shake is Mike's favorite snack!

When Mike and I got married, we thoroughly enjoyed registering for gifts.  It was the first time either of us lived on our own, so we really were starting from scratch.  We were completely blessed with all the gifts we received from our family and friends.

But we were slightly confused that a month after our wedding, our registry was showing that a blender had been purchased, but we couldn't find it in our house.  I couldn't remember receiving a blender and it wasn't listed on any of our gift lists we made for thank you cards.  We couldn't figure out if we had misplaced the blender, or if the registry was just incorrect.  We decided to wait until we needed a blender to buy one.

In December, we were at a family Christmas party and Mike's aunt came up to us with a gift.  She said it was a wedding present.  We were married in October, and had already received a shower and wedding gift from his aunt, so we certainly weren't expecting anything!  We opened up the bag and inside was a blender!  It turns out that Mike's aunt had purchased the blender for us, but she attended two weddings in October.  When she got our thank you card, she was confused that we thanked her for a set of glasses as she was sure she had given us something "bigger" (her words, not mine!).  Then she received a thank you from the other couple, thanking her for the blender.  She quickly realized that she had mixed up the gifts!  She felt bad about it, so she bought us a blender!

We had a good laugh about the confusion and were thrilled to have a blender!  We love to have smoothies for breakfast or snacks, so our blender has been used a lot.  So much in fact, that after 3.5 years of weekly use, the motor in our blender has called it quits.  A few weeks ago we ordered a new one, and let me tell you, Mike thought it was Christmas again!  He was so proud of our shiny blue Blender!

Mike is completely obsessed with Biscoff Spread.  We go through at least one jar a week!  Not too long ago, he suggested making a Biscoff shake.  Shakes are so easy to make, I wasn't going to complain about his desire for an easy snack!  We both loved these shakes, and now Mike requests them a few times a week.

I think we're going to have to buy stock in Biscoff...
