Summer is here and we have been enjoying our favourite basic milkshake recipe for months now, but it was time to mix things up!
This Oreo Milkshake will be on repeat here until the end of summer. Cookies ‘n’ Cream desserts are some of our favourites and this one was no exception!
What I love is that this milkshake recipe comes together with just three ingredients and in a few minutes time, so I don’t have to leave my sunny spot by the kiddie pool for very long to whip up a batch.
Another thing I love?
Using milk from Canadian dairy farms and vanilla ice cream from brands that I know use 100% Canadian milk in their products.
To find out if the products use 100% Canadian milk, simply look for the Blue Cow logo!
Because I know how much love and hard work our dairy farmers in Manitoba and across Canada put into producing high quality milk for our Canadian dairy products, I am proud to serve it to our family!
And no one complains about getting some calcium and protein in the form of an Oreo Milkshake 😉
How to Make an Oreo Milkshake:
There really aren’t a lot of rules when it comes to making any milkshake, but there are a few tips and tricks I can give you to ensure the texture and flavor are perfect!
- Place the ingredients in the blender in the order listed — with the most difficult to blend at the top. This way, the blender won’t get hung up on trying to process something hard or crunchy without much liquid.
- Stop and stir if necessary — not all blenders will be able to process a milkshake in one go, so if it seems to be stuck, simply stop the blender and open the lid to stir.
- Stick to the ice cream to milk ratio listed — this will ensure a thick but drinkable consistency!
Ingredients and Substitutions:
- Vanilla ice cream: I use vanilla because we always have some on hand! You can swap in Oreo ice cream, chocolate, or any of the other varieties I’ve listed below if you have some.
- Milk: I usually use 1% or 2% milk as, again, it is what we have on hand most times. You can use anywhere from 1-3.25% milk.
- Oreo cookies: any chocolate sandwich cookies will do! If you don’t have a high power blender, you may want to break them in half or quarters before adding to the blender.
- Toppings: Homemade whipped cream, chocolate sauce and crushed Oreos make this homemade milkshake a little extra special!
