I’ve never been one for milkshakes.
I like to eat my calories rather than drink them, especially when it comes to dessert.
Though I used to really love the hot fudge milkshake at Dairy Queen – have you ever tried that? It is unreal.
But regular old milkshakes don’t do much for me.
Then I saw this in the recent issue of Bon Appetit.
The day I find that magazine in my mailbox is the best day of the month. I just pour over it.
And I get hungry.
And eat cookies or pita chips or whatever is in reach, while really wishing I was eating each dish off every page.
That magazine makes me eat my emotions.
Now I’m reconsidering my take on milkshakes.
This was so delicious.
Even better – the peach was perfectly juicy and ripe. I love sweet peaches.
I almost wish I would have added a second one.
And you really only need one cookie for the shake.
But I bought two. Just so I could eat one by it’s lonesome.
Totally worth it.
from Bon Appetit, September 2010
1 cup milk
1/2 cup ice cream
1-2 fresh peaches, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 snickerdoodle cookie + crumbles for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Garnish with cookie crumbs.
I need one of these for breakfast.
It’s Monday, so that’s my excuse. Not that I ever needed one before.

Gosh does this sound good! Thankfully peaches have been great this summer, so I’ll definitely try this! :)
I’ve had some good peaches this summer, too! The way I see it, there’s fruit and milk in this – perfect for breakfast.
mmmm peach. Magic bullet! I make all of my milkshakes and smoothies in my magic bullet. That thing just rocks. I think you definitely need one of these for your Monday morning!!
That sounds like an interesting combo for a shake. I love both peaches and snickerdoodles. It is a match made in heaven!
I reallyyyy wish I had the time to blog daily like you. I guess I do, I just need to actually do it! :) You’ve given me a great reason to post tonight with this milkshake.
peaches and snickerdoodle!?? who would have though! i LOVE a juicy peach! i just bought some yesterday and just waiting for them to get all ripe!
What??? Peaches with cinnamon? Sounds a little strange to me, but I’m thinking about it. Processing…
Okay. I give up. It does sound awesome. :D
WOW that looks delicious! I think I need to try this one in the bullet.
You had me at Snickerdoodle :)
Oh holy yum. I am so obsessed with peaches right now, I’ve been inhaling them in any form I can…I need to try this!
I’m with you about milkshakes…I prefer to eat my food, too! That said, this recipe could change my mind! :-) Peaches and cinnamon are a classic combination (think crumbles, pies), so I’m sure this was amazing!
I’m not a big fan of fruit and milk. Unless it’s bananas. Bananas go with milk. Either way I’ll have the snickerdoodle, thanks.
ohmyheavens! what a combination!! ingenious really.
you know, i don’t really love snickerdoodles, but OH MY GOSH this looks amazing!
I am with you, I don’t like to drink my calories either! I have really been loving on some peaches lately too! When I do “milkshakes” I make them so thick they are more like soft serve ice cream. I bet the flavor of this was out of this world! YUM!
Totally agree on eating my calories vs. drinking them! But, this looks like an exception! ;)
I’m honestly not much of a milkshake girl. It is a combination of preferring the real deal of ice cream over a liquid version, as well as not wanting to drink my calories. But a milkshake that incorporates one of my favorite fruits and one of my favorite cookies is one that I could get on board with!
I also make my milkshakes super thick so I can eat them with a spoon. Looks so yummy!
We both posted peach recipes today! Love this shake!
Can I eat this for every meal every day? OMG!!
Snickerdoodles are the best cookies!!! This sounds delicious, and peach flavor is so good too.
I heart milkshakes!!! I love the sound of this combo!
I bought white peaches by accident this week and they just aren’t nearly as good as regular ones. I guess this is a good thing, because it will keep me from making snickerdoodle milkshakes for dinner every night.
I’m with you on the drinking your calories thing. I like to get my milkshake fix by sweetly offering to make a milkshake for my husband, which inevitably leads to some sampling for myself along the way. I bet he (ahem, I) would love this one! :)
I love how you share recipes I would never think up on my own. All of them are always unique but mouth-watering at the same time :)
What I like about this is that you might be able to pass it off as a “smoothie.” And “smoothies” are “healthy,” right? :-)
Snickerdoodles are seriously my favorite. Have you ever had snickerdoodle dough ice cream? It’s insane.
No! That sounds incredible.
Oh, I love milkshakes and snickerdoodles and peaches. Such a wonderful combination!
Peaches and cinnamon – in a milk shake? Yum! Looks like everyone is posting peach recipes today – I love it!
I just discovered Snickerdoodles earlier this year and am now obsessed with them. So I know that I would just inhale this shake, probably in one gulp.
Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies! This recipe is genius! Thanks for sharing!
Holy CRAP! That looks incredible. (plus your photography is stunning!) now I’m seriously wanting a peach milkshake and a cookie.
HOLY YUM :) Never thought of a shake + cookie combo! Genius :)
Bon Apetit always has such creative recipes!
yum! I love snickerdoodle-flavored anything!
That does sound good! I’ve always liked to eat my calories too, but man dq’s blizzards are so good!
I am the same, I’d much rather eat my calories. Fantastic, tasty alternative. Seasonally peachy.
Yummmmmmmmmm! I didn’t even know what snickerdoodles were until I met my husband! I was missing out!
the beauty of you and your blog is the ability to take something that I want and make it into something that i NEED! yum!
have a great day hon…I am off for a busy one!
I’ve never had snickerdoodles before but have *always* wanted to try them. And combining them with juicy ripe peaches? Perfect!
There’s a cookie IN the milkshake?! GENIUS.
I loooove snickerdoodles! L-o-v-e. And milkshakes. And peaches. This is perfect…especially because it’s Ellen-proof! Something I can make without screwing up! Hooray :)
This looks and sounds amazing — I’m a freak for both peaches and snickerdoodle cookies! And since I recently went to Chick-Fil-A only to learn the peach milkshake — my favorite! — is gone for the season, maybe I’ll have to give this one a whirl.
I can’t believe I have never thought of putting cookies into a milkshake. Like, ever. THIS CHANGES MY WHOLE LIFE.
Love the broken cookie with the shake – great shot.
Now I want a snickerdoodle.
A milkshake with peaches & cookies! What next??? Always swooned by your creations. xo
I’m so into peaches right now! What a unique way to use them. Swoon… :)
Dang, Monday is over…can Tuesday be my excuse to have this for breakfast!? YUM!
Excuse me, I need to go get a peach and a snickerdoodle. Looks totally awesome!
