You're going to love this Oreo iced coffee recipe. Made with actual cookies, this coffee has a perfect mocha flavor in every sip. Your summer drink just got a fun upgrade.
We love Oreos in everything from Oreo Bundt Cake to Air Fried Oreo Cookies and Oreo Overnight Oats too. But now we're serving Oreos up in our drinks too. And I'm not just talking about our Cookies N Cream Milkshake (although, that is delicious).
This cookies and cream iced coffee recipe is a PERFECT blend of sweet chocolate and smooth coffee. It tastes great hot and cold, but we enjoy it best over a tall glass of ice (or blended for a frappe-like drink).
Making homemade iced coffee recipes is easy, and adding Oreos makes them fun! Your Oreo coffee drink is one you'll want to make often and is one that you won't soon forget. But make sure to try my Maple Iced Coffee, Caramel Iced Coffee, and Vanilla Iced Latte when you finally run out of cookies (is that even possible?)
🍯 Why This Recipe Works
- It's quick and easy. Made with just a few simple and basic ingredients, you can have an iced oreo coffee ready to drink in no time. This recipe takes about as much time as this Iced White Chocolate Mocha.
- Simple ingredients. Coffee, ice, cookies, milk, and sweetener are all you'll need to make this recipe, but don't forget some whipped cream for a fun garnish on top!
- You can scale it up or down. Make more than one glass, or just make one for yourself. This recipe can easily be adjusted to make as many or as few glasses as you want.
Coffee- You will need some freshly brewed coffee as the cookies dissolve better in a warmer drink.
Cookies- Use some Oreo cookies for rich chocolate flavor in every sip. You can try any flavor Oreo you'd like, but I prefer to stick with the traditional chocolate ones. Peppermint Oreos could be a fun seasonal twist if you want a Peppermint Iced Coffee.
Milk- Use any milk desired to help tone down the bitterness in the coffee. Higher fat milks like whole milk or heavy cream can remove the bitterness more than a low-fat option.
For specific ingredients and measurements, please see the recipe card below.
For a dairy-free version, simply swap out the milk for a dairy-free alternative. Oreo cookies are naturally vegan.
There are also store-bought coconut whipped cream options available for garnishing.
Depending on how much ice you use and the size of your cups, you may be able to make two glasses from this Oreo cold coffee recipe without doubling.
🔪 Instructions for Oreo Iced Coffee Recipe
Step 1: Brew your favorite coffee.
Step 2: Add the coffee to a tall glass.
Step 3: Add in the Oreo cookies. Submerge the cookies. Let rest 1-2 minutes.
Step 4: Stir the coffee and cookies with a spoon to break up the cookies into fine crumbs.
Step 5: Once the cookies have dissolved, strain them through a fine mesh strainer.
You will still have some chunks remaining. For a smoother coffee, using a Nut Milk Bag works best.
Step 6: You can let the coffee cool more or add it to your drinking glass at this point. Stir in the sugar until dissolved.
Step 7: Add in the ice cubes. You'll want enough ice to fill the cup about ⅔s of the way full.
Step 8: Add in the milk. You'll want enough to bring the drink to the top of the glass.
Step 9: Stir to combine. The cookie pieces will settle at the bottom of the glass.
Step 10: Top with whipped cream and an Oreo cookie for garnish.
Serve with a straw, and enjoy!
🍴 Recipe Tips
To strain out more of the Oreo cookie pieces, you can use a nut milk bag. I used a sieve, and it took out a lot of the pieces, but not all of them. If the texture is an issue, you can blend this drink with added ice and turn it into a more frappe-like beverage.
⏲️ Make Ahead Instructions
You can brew the coffee in advance and keep it stored in the fridge so it's chilled but ready to go when needed.
Up to a few hours in advance, you can mix the iced coffee together (without the ice) and keep it stored in the fridge. When you're ready to drink, all you have to do is add in some ice.
💭 Recipe FAQs
Yes, you can use cold brew to make this drink, but it may take a little longer to dissolve the cookies in the coffee.
Adding ice to anything makes it feel more refreshing, but adding milk to lattes helps to give the coffee a richer, velvety texture which is hard to beat. Adding flavors and sweeteners makes them too good to resist.
Yes! The chocolate cookies and cream centers add a wonderful taste of sweet rich creamy goodness to every glass. It's like a mocha, but so much better!
