- Fast prep. This recipe only takes a moment to throw together and blend, perfect for a faster solution to your cravings.
- Perfect for sharing. This recipe makes one milkshake but it can easily be doubled or tripled as needed. Everyone will love getting their own glass of oreo shakes.
Heavy cream- Add in heavy cream to replace the richness and creamy consistency you're used to getting from ice cream.
Powdered sugar- Use powdered sugar to make the milkshake sweeter without changing the consistency.
Ice cubes- This is the base of the milkshake recipe. Use ice cubes to make the shake thick and cold.
Oreo cookies- Use any flavor of oreo cookie to make this drink delicious!
For specific ingredients and measurements, please see the recipe card below.
Heavy cream. Instead of using heavy cream you can use coconut milk or whole fat milk. The results won't be as rich and creamy as if they had been made with heavy cream, but they will still be very delicious.
Milk. If you want, you can use nondairy milk, low fat milk, or even half and half instead.
Oreo variations. There are countless different flavor variations of Oreo cookies and you can use any of them! (The green mint ones would be great for St. Patricks Day).
Also, don't feel obligated to stick with the name brand versions of these cookies. Offbrand cookies work just as great too!
🥣 Topping Ideas
I took a plastic milkshake glass (from Target $3 for a pack of 3) and then dipped the rim in chocolate syrup and cookie crumbs before freezing for 5 minutes as I made the milkshake.
After filling the cup with my homemade oreo milkshake I topped with off with whipped cream, a maraschino cherry, and an oreo cookie on the rim. To get the cookie to secure nicely, I cut a tiny wedge in the side of the cookie.

🍴 Recipe Tips
You can adjust the consistency of this milkshake to your own liking by adding in more ice (if you want it thicker) or more milk (if you want it thinner).
If you really want to enhance the chocolate flavor you can use chocolate milk instead of regular milk. This makes the milkshake feel a lot richer in taste, but it's honestly great either way.
💭 Recipe FAQs
If you do not have a blender handy you can pulverize the oreo milkshake ingredients in a food processor instead.
No, I don't recommend storing your milkshake at all. Milkshakes are best served when freshly made and if kept in the fridge or freezer, the milkshake will melt or solidify and not be the correct consistency.
If your milkshake melts too fast you can revive it by pouring the melted mess back into the blender with some more ice. Blend until it's looking fresh again and adjust to taste (add more cookies, milk, chocolate syrup, etc.)
