My kids love a good milkshake! We switch off between Reese’s blizzards, a peach milkshake, and this easy Oreo milkshake. There’s a tie between the four of us for who likes which milkshake better, so give both a try and let me know in the comments!
The great thing about this recipe is the splash of vanilla. I’ve told you once, I’ll tell you again, you really can’t go wrong with a splash of vanilla in any dessert! It really hits home the vanilla flavor and pairs so well with the Oreos.
If you’re a chocolate lover, you can swap out the vanilla ice cream for chocolate ice cream. You can still use the splash of vanilla if you are using chocolate ice cream. Like I said, it’s a game changer.
- Oreos — I used normal, but double stuffed is also a great choice. And if you have leftover Oreo’s you can use them to make these soft cookies and cream cookies.
- Vanilla ice cream — Try out my homemade vanilla ice cream recipe!
- Milk — Any kind will work (1%, 2% or whole)
- Vanilla extract
- Homemade Hot fudge — For topping. If you don’t want to make your own you can use store bought. But homemade is so yummy friends!
- Whipped cream — For topping
- Crushed Oreos — For topping
How to Make an Oreo Milkshake
- Add all of the ingredients minus the topping ingredients (hot fudge, whipped cream) to a blender.
- Blend/pulse until combined. I don’t get too vigorous with my blending because I like there to be some Oreo chunks. (You can add more milk for a thinner milkshake.)
- Pour into 2 large glasses. Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of hot fudge and extra crushed Oreos.
Tools Used for This Recipe
Blender – I use a Vitamix (which I love).
If you like a more chunky Oreo milkshake, give just a few pulses in the blender. That’s the way I like it! I love getting those chunks of cookies in there. If you like a more blended milkshake without chunks, give it a good blend. Either way, it’s delicious!
Swap out the vanilla ice cream for chocolate ice cream if you prefer a more chocolatey flavor.
Add a drizzle of caramel on top for a caramel oreo milkshake.
Use almond milk instead of cow’s milk for a healthier version.
This makes two large glasses or four small glasses.
How do you make a milkshake without ice cream?
I would use frozen bananas instead of ice cream. Your flavor will be a little different because of the bananas, but that’s the best replacement if you want a vegan or dairy-free milkshake.
How to make a milkshake without a blender
If you don’t have a blender, I would let the ice cream get a little soft so it’s easier to mix with and put the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined.
How to make a thick milkshake
To get a thicker consistency, use less milk. However, you’ll still need a little bit of the milk to get the mixture to blend in the blender without overheating your blender.
