This Oreo Milkshake is just delicious and so easy to make at home. Perfect for a weekend or movie night drink. As this is a special milkshake we go all out here with the full-fat milk, ice cream and whipped cream. It is decadent, delicious and oh so chocolaty without being overpowering thanks to using Oreos for flavouring rather than chocolate.
Oreo Milkshake Recipe
The inspiration for this Oreo milkshake came from a walk along the beach and a milkshake from Sandsend. This was Maxi’s choice of drink and once we got home he was desperate to replicate it and I actually think we managed to better it.
As this is such a special sweet treat I think that making your own whipped cream topping is worthwhile although it is so easy to substitute for canned squirty cream (which we always have in the fridge).
How to make an Oreo Milkshake
The fact that new blenders are so powerful is what has made milkshakes like this so simple to make at home.
Add two ice cubes before blending to make your milkshake frosty cool.
In the UK you get 16 Oreos in a packet, so our recipe used all of the packets with 2 reserved for serving and 2 crushed to rim the glasses and sprinkle on top. No, you don’t have to rim the glasses and I didn’t in the images for the photos but it is so simple to do and looks really effective. I think it makes the milkshakes even more epic and if you are making these then they need to look as epic as they taste! We have also made these with the Cookies and Cream biscuits from Aldi and the chocolate sandwich cookies from Lidl and they are amazing.
How to rim your glass with Oreo Crumbs
Using a blender or smoothie maker crush two oreo cookies to make crumbs. On a side plate add a small amount of milk and dip the rim of the glass in before dipping in the Oreo crumbs.
Our blender is a Ninja 2-in-1 Blender with Auto-iQ. We used to have the Ninja 2 Cup Blender which we loved and used a lot so upgraded to the 2-in-1 with a larger capacity. It is amazing, We use it daily for smoothies, milkshakes, soup and stocks. It has been a great purchase and one that I can recommend especially as we had the smoothie maker since 2016 and it is still working at my best friend’s house.
This Amazing Oreo milkshake is simple to make at home with our step by step recipe. A real treat in a glass that tastes delicious.
For the Milkshake
- 4 Ice Cubes
- 400 ml Milk
- 4 Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
- 16 Oreo Biscuits
For the cream
- 1 tbsp Icing Sugar
- 150 mltsp Whipping Cream
- Tin of sqirty cream
For the Garnish
- 2 Oreos Crushed
Blend 2 Oreo cookies and set aside for garnish and rim.
Pour your milk,icecream, ice cubes and 12 Oreo cookies into a blender and blend on a high speed for 1 minute.
Meanwhile whist your whipping cream with 1 tablespoon of icing sugar and add to a piping bag.
Rim your glass with Oreo crumbs by dipping the glass in milk and then dipping in the Oreo Crumb set aside for toping.
Pour your milkshake in to 2 glasses and top with your cream, sprinkle with oreo crumb and add a whole oreo for garnish.
Best drunk immediately.
To make your milkshake more chocolaty replace the vanilla ice cream with chocolate.
Oreo cookies are vegetarian friendly, but not vegan as they make have cross-contamination from milk products even though they don’t contain milk.
For a thicker shake add more ice and ice cream and reduce the amount of milk.
We have made these quite a few times since the first time and have tried lots of options such as using chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla and using mint Oreos too (which is mini’s favourite). You can also make them with dairy-free milk such as coconut milk or almond milk instead of whole milk. There really isn’t a wrong way to adapt your milkshake. Mini likes a caramel sauce on his whereas Maxi likes chunks of cookie in his milkshake.
You can really get the desired consistency by using more or less ice cream. More ice cream will give you the creamy texture of a thick milkshake.
