Tim Tam Slam {Hot} & Raspberry Tim Tam Milkshake {Cold}

How could I mention Tim Tam without bringing up the famous Tim Tam Slam? It is not really a drink made with chocolate biscuits but it is a WAY of eating Tim Tam with your hot drink.

Hot drinks can be a cuppa (tea), coffee and in my case, hot milk with malt.

Tim Tam Slam

To do: You start with a cup of hot drink. Take a SMALL bite at opposite corners of a Tim Tam biscuits. Working very quickly, dunk one bitten side into the hot drink with you both hands and suck the hot drink through the other bitten side, as if a straw. As soon as the milk passes through the biscuit, the whole thing sort off collapses and you have to shove the whole thing in your mouth. (Yes, I said shove! How often do I get to instruct people to shove food into their mouth? ;) )

The next drink recipe is dedicated to those who are enjoying warm and sunny days (I’m jealous!) and who are craving for a thick, icy cold chocolate milkshake with a hint of REAL raspberry flavour and texture from chocolate biscuit crumbs. Well lucky people, look no further, I have just the recipe for you below.

Raspberry Tim Tam Milkshake

Makes 2 cups

What you’ll need:

  • 3 Tim Tam Original biscuits
  • 1 cup of cold milk
  • A handful of fresh/frozen raspberries (about 7- 8 raspberries)
  • 3 – 4 scoops of chocolate ice cream

To do: Process the Tim Tam biscuits until resembles fine crumbs and set aside. Then combine milk, raspberries and ice cream in a milkshake container and process the mixture until smooth and creamy with a stick blender. Stir in the Tim Tam crumbs (leave some behind for garnish). Serve immediately.

I don’t think I need anything more to prove that I’m Truly, Madly Tim Tam. I hope you are too!

PS: I don’t know how you feel about gulping down the milkshake. The straw in the photo is an evidence of my vanity (oh it brings back the memories of me rocking my stilettos while sight-seeing with my beloved in Taronga Zoo in Dubbo). The biscuits crumbs cause some blockage to the conventional straws unless you have a larger straw (like the ones with the bubble teas).

PPS: First shove and then gulp. I’m definitely failing How To Be A Lady 101. ;P

    I’ve heard of Tim Tams I think but have never had one. The milkshake looks delicious, though, and the Tim Tam Slam idea is hilarious. I’ll have to remember that someday when I get my hands on one!

      When I first heard of Tim Tam Slam, I thought it is kinda strange…but my thought has changed completely once I tried it. It is popular for a very good reason. :) Hope you’ll like it ….if you like oreo with cold milk…Tim Tam Slam is just as good.

    I received a packet of Tim Tams from some visiting Australians and tried to do the Tim Tam slam with my tea… I thought I was doing it wrong when it collapsed into a melty, gooey, delicious mess… but your instructions are giving me hope! I think more research is needed!

      Hi Ann,

      If it helps you can check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hK-cXhjWfc
      It is pretty funny.
      And I don’t think you are doing it wrong. I think as soon as you can feel the hot drink, you have to eat the whole thing right away. :)

    TimTams were 3 for $5 today, so I had to buy some to test this out. I made the Milkshake with the turkish delight timtams and it was yummo!! I also put in a little bit of homemade raspberry vodka, just because it was laying around.
