This cookies n cream milkshake is a deliciously refreshing treat packed with your favorite cookie flavors. Made with Oreos and ice cream, you know it's going to be good!
We are loving this hot summer weather lately because it means more milkshakes and smoothies. I swear my blender is getting more use than the oven lately, haha. Not that anyone is complaining.
This deliciously thick oreo milkshake recipe only needs 3 ingredients and a minute or two of your time. It's so easy to make that you can have it made from start to finish in the time span of a commercial break on tv. Perfect for when you don't want to miss anything but still want something sweet to enjoy.
If you don't have ice cream on hand, you can try this Oreo Milkshake version instead! These two milkshakes taste almost identical in a blind taste test with the kids.
Why This Recipe Works

🍴 Recipe Tips
You can double or triple this oreo shake recipe as needed (assuming you can fit that much in your lender). This recipe only makes enough for one tall glass, so if you're looking to make enough for a family, doubling or tripling will cut down on a lot of time by just blending it all together.
As tempting as it is to snack on the Oreos, you may want to save a few for crumbling on top of your drink before serving. Of course, don't forget the whipped cream either because that just helps to complete the look.
To make an oreo milkshake, all you have to do is add milk, ice cream, and oreo cookies (in that order) to a blender before pulsing until the consistency you want.
You can use any milk that you may have on hand, from whole milk to low-fat milk or even dairy-free options too.
The ratio of ice cream to milk is what determines the consistency of the drink. Add your milk slowly until it's as thick or as thin as you want it to be.
