👩‍🍳 How to Make this Oreo Shake (Step-By-Step Instructions with Detailed Photos)

Step 1. Fill the Blender with Ice Cream

To begin with, put 5 cups of vanilla bean ice cream into a blender at the 5-cup line. You can certainly use whichever ice cream is your favorite that you think will go good with Oreo cookies.

Add five cups of vanilla bean ice cream to the five-cup line on the blender and then add one and a half cups of two percent milk.

Step 2. Add the Oreo Cookies, Milk, and Vanilla Extract

Add 16 double stuffed Oreo cookies, 3/4 cups of 2% milk (use less milk for a thicker milkshake), and 2 and 1/5 teaspoons of vanilla extract into the blender together with the vanilla bean ice cream.

Note: Any chocolate sandwich cookies will work for this recipe, it doesn’t have to be Oreo brand.

Quick Tip: If you want a thicker milkshake, use less milk. Start out with 1/4 cup of milk, then keep adding milk until you get the consistency and thickness you desire. Also, ice cream melts pretty fast, so if the ice cream melted too much while you were busy making the milkshake ingredients, you can always put the blender in the freezer for half an hour or so to freeze the milkshake ingredients up a bit more.

Step 3. Hit the Pulse Button

Put the lid on the blender, then hit the pulse button. Keep pushing the pulse button until the Oreo cookies looked chopped up and the ice cream is blended with the cookies. It doesn’t take very long at all for it to mix up.

Note: Take the lid off and check to see if the cookies are chopped up enough. If not, push the cookies down with a spoon to get them closer to the blade. Put the lid back on the blender and hit the pulse button a couple more times, and then that’s it. The Oreo milkshake is ready to serve.

Also, if you want bigger chunks of Oreo cookies and a thicker milkshake, as mentioned before, use less milk, and hit the pulse button on the blender fewer times for chunkier cookies. You can also add the cookies at the end after mixing the ice cream with the milk and vanilla extract, then hit the pulse button a few times.

Just remember, the longer the ice cream is in the blender, the more it will melt. And also, the longer you hit the pulse button, the thinner and runnier the milkshake will be.

📌 Edible Garnishes for Oreo Milkshake Recipe

For more garnish ideas:

  • Crush up a few extra cookies and sprinkle them on top of the whipped topping.
  • Drizzle a fine line of hot fudge or chocolate sauce topping across the top of the whipped topping.
  • Some folks like finely crushed nuts such as walnuts or peanuts to sprinkle on top of their milkshake.

🙋‍♀️ FAQs

Why is my Milkshake Runny?

You may have added too much milk with not enough ice cream. If that’s the case, just add more ice cream. Also, if you end up with extra milkshakes because you had to add more ice cream, you can freeze the leftovers and have another milkshake on a different day. It will be frozen, so you can take it out of the freezer and let it set on the cupboard for a few minutes, or just dive into it with a spoon. 🙂 Frozen milkshakes are the yummiest of yums!
