To begin with, I’ll tell you what ingredients you’ll need to make an Oreo milkshake. They’re all widely available but might not be ready in your pantry, so you may need a quick visit to the grocery store.

  • 10 Oreo cookies
  • One pint of vanilla ice cream
  • Two cups of milk
  • Hot chocolate fudge
  • Whipped cream
  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Chocolate sauce (optional)

How to Make an Oreo Milkshake

Now, I’ll walk you through making a classic Oreo milkshake using vanilla ice cream, milk, and chocolate sauce.

Blend the Ingredients

The first step is to put the vanilla ice cream, milk, eight Oreo cookies, and vanilla extract in your blender. Then, blend them till you get the desired consistency.

I prefer blending them lightly to get Oreo chunks in my milkshake, but you can do as you like if you don’t want a thick milkshake. You can also add more milk if your milkshake is too thick.

Don’t blend the rest of the ingredients, though; you’ll need them for the topping later on.

Crush the Rest of the Oreo Cookies

An Oreo milkshake is an ideal dessert for a hot summer day; it's cold, has an exceptional taste, and is insanely easy to make. What more can you ask for?

The next step is crushing the remaining two Oreo cookies for the topping. You can do so by putting them in a plastic bag and pounding them with a rolling pin. Keep doing so till you get enough crumbles for your delicious and thick Oreo milkshake.

Pour the Mixture

The best way to serve delicious Oreo milkshakes is in tall glasses. This way, you’ll enjoy the glass of deliciousness and creamy texture for a longer time. So pour the mixture right out of the blender into a tall glass, and add a straw.

Make the Topping

An Oreo milkshake is an ideal dessert for a hot summer day; it's cold, has an exceptional taste, and is insanely easy to make. What more can you ask for?

You can put whipped cream on top of the milkshake, drizzle some chocolate syrup, and add the crushed cookies you just crumbled. You can also add a small spoon of chocolate ice cream if you don’t mind the extra calories.

As a final step, you can add a whole Oreo cookie on top of the whipped cream and small pieces of chocolate fudge.

And voila! You’ve just made an easy Oreo milkshake that you can enjoy without the need for an expensive milkshake machine.

Recipe Tips

Making Oreo shakes doesn’t have a specific rule book; you can add your touch here and there for a decadent treat instead of following the Oreo milkshake recipe. In this section, I’ll tell you about some twists I like to make from time to time.

First, you can use chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla for a richer chocolaty flavor, but beware that it might cover the ever-delicious Oreo taste. I prefer the vanilla flavor for its flowery and sweet taste.

You can also change the chocolate sauce with caramel sauce for the topping if you want to make a caramel Oreo milkshake.

The sweetness of caramel will complement the taste of ice cream, milk, and Oreos perfectly. But doing so will make your Oreo shake much sweeter, so stick to the chocolate syrup if you don’t have a sweet tooth.

Finally, adding peanut butter to Oreo milkshakes results in a heavenly taste that’ll make you forget all about the calories you’re consuming. You can add two or three tablespoons of peanut butter to the blender along with the other ingredients.

How to Make a Healthy Oreo Shake

While a glass of cold Oreo shake is a perfect treat for a hot day, it isn’t very healthy. Luckily, you can make a healthy version by alternating some ingredients.

An Oreo milkshake is an ideal dessert for a hot summer day; it's cold, has an exceptional taste, and is insanely easy to make. What more can you ask for?

Many people are allergic to milk, and some want to stay dairy-free for their skin’s health. Luckily, you can make an equally delicious glass of Oreo milkshake without milk.

You’ll need to replace it with almond or coconut milk and get dairy-free ice cream, and you’ll still get to enjoy the delicious Oreo flavor.

The second culprit here is ice cream; it’s almost everybody’s guilty pleasure. If you want to stick to your diet and avoid using it, you can use mashed frozen bananas instead. I have to warn you, though; it won’t taste the same.

Finally, no need to say that you have to skip the topping part in my recipe to make healthy Oreo milkshakes. Whipped cream and hot chocolate fudge don’t scream healthy, do they?

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Make an Oreo Milkshake Without Using a Blender?

Yes, you can. Put your ice cream in a microwave-safe jar, then throw it in the microwave till it’s creamy and soft, not frozen. Then, add the rest of your ingredients to the jar and shake it. Next, stir the mix with a spoon till you get the consistency you like. It’s worth mentioning that your Oreo shake won’t be so frosty and thick, but it’ll satisfy your milkshake cravings just fine.

Are Oreo Cookies Vegan?

No, they aren’t. Oreos have milk among their ingredients, so they aren’t vegan. If you want to make a vegan Oreo milkshake, you’ll need to look for an alternative vegan sandwich cookie and use almond milk and frozen bananas.

Can I Add Ice Cubes to My Milkshake?

You can, but I don’t recommend it. Adding ice cubes will water down your drink and make it thinner. So I often skip this step for a thicker milkshake. Also, ice cream gives the milkshake perfect coldness, so there’s no need for ice cubes.

How Do I Thicken My Milkshake After Making It?

If you feel like the milkshake you’ve made is too thin, you can thicken it by freezing it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Alternatively, you can add more ice cream and heavy whipped cream.
