About Oreo Milkshake

Oreo Milkshake is a classic concoction from popular fast-food chains. It is a simple milkshake that is a meticulous amalgamation of Oreo cookies, milk, and ice cream, and is an intense pleasure for the senses. 

The Oreo cookies, vanilla ice cream, chocolate ganache, and chilled milk are blended to form the base of this delectable treat. As you blend these ingredients, you get a comforting indulgence that’s sure to allure your taste glands. 

Whether you are a fan of creamy milkshakes, chocolate desserts, or a delightful drink, this milkshake recipe suits for all purposes. To recreate this ultimate cafe-style masterpiece at home, you just have to blend Oreo cookies with milk, ice cream, and chocolate sauce.

I have used regular Oreo cookies for making this milkshake, but if you want to create a different flavor profile then you can use other flavors and cream varieties for a diverse flavor experience.

For example, you can use hot cocoa, caramel apple, red velvet, PBJ, gingerbread, double stuff, pina colada, or chocolate strawberry cream flavors.   

I have prepared this milkshake with vanilla ice cream. However, if you are into EXTRA chocolatey desserts and drinks or want to have an intensified flavor experience, then you can also swap vanilla ice cream with chocolate ice cream. 

Whether you choose to make it for a chocolate drink craving, or an indulgent weekend drink, this beverage always tastes satisfying. So go ahead, grab some basic ingredients, and devour the joy of making your very own Oreo milkshake in the comfort of your home.

Ingredients 

  • Oreo Cookies: As the name suggests, it is the heart and soul of this milkshake recipe. The Oreo sandwich cookies are used for blending milkshakes. They infuse the milkshake with a rich cocoa flavor.

Cookies are also used as toppings, and also used for decorating glass rims. 

  • Vanilla Ice Cream: The vanilla ice cream gives it a neutral base, creamy texture and soothing touch to the milkshake. Vanilla ice cream complements the strong chocolate flavors. 

  • Chocolate Ganache or Syrup: I have added chocolate ganache to intensify the cocoa flavor. You can also use chocolate syrup for this milkshake recipe. 

  • Milk: It works as the liquid base. You will need some chilled milk for creaminess and smooth consistency. I have used regular dairy milk, but you can also use non-dairy milk for this milkshake.

Also, you can adjust the amount of milk depending upon the consistency you are looking for. Vegan milk alternatives that taste great in this milkshake are coconut milk, soya milk, and oats milk. 

  • Whipped Cream: It is an optional ingredient. Milkshake is generously topped with whipped cream at the time of serving. A succulent topping of whipped cream adds a light and airy contrast to the deep color of milkshake. 

Variations

Nutella Oreo Milkshake 

Love Nutella drinks and Nutella desserts? Then you can make a delicious Nutella Oreo milkshake by adding 1-2 tablespoons of Nutella to the blender along with other ingredients. For a rich nutty crunch, you can also add chopped hazelnut to the milkshake glass right before pouring. 

Vegan Oreo Milkshake 

If you embrace a plant-based diet, then you can make a vegan version of Oreo milkshake by swapping dairy milk with almond milk or coconut milk and dairy ice cream with non-dairy ice cream. Also, make sure that your chocolate ganache and whipped cream are vegan-friendly. 

Strawberry Oreo Milkshake 

Are you a fan of strawberry milkshake and chocolate milkshake? Then why not mingle these in a single drink? To make this fantastic variation, add 1 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries to the blender along with other ingredients. This type of variation offers a fruity twist that superbly goes with the chocolatey base. 

Coffee Oreo Milkshake 

Coffee and chocolate pair well together. So, for a nice, caffeinated kick, you can add a shot of espresso to the milkshake and blend with other ingredients.

Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo Milkshake 

Love a mint infused milkshake? Then you can try adding a few drops of mint extract. Fresh mint leaves are also used in this recipe. Also, you can Substitute vanilla ice cream with mint chocolate chip ice cream for an added minty flavor. 

Caramel Oreo Milkshake 

To make caramel flavored Oreo milkshakes, you can swap Oreo cookies with caramel cookies. Also, replace chocolate sauce with caramel sauce or caramel syrup. The buttery richness of caramel adds a luxurious touch to this milkshake. 

Peanut Butter Oreo Milkshake 

For this version, add 1-2 tablespoons of chunky or creamy peanut butter to the blender along with others and your decadent treat is ready. For making a peanut butter milkshake, you can also replace vanilla ice cream with peanut butter ice cream. 

Double Chocolate Oreo Milkshake 

Adore relishing double chocolate desserts and drinks? Then you can simply embrace double chocolate goodness by adding chocolate hazelnut ice cream along with the Oreo cookies.

Banana Oreo Milkshake 

Bananas and chocolate taste so great together. To make this variation, you can add 1 cup of frozen or fresh banana slices to the blender. Bananas add natural sweetness and creaminess to the milkshake.

Serving Suggestions

You can simply serve the milkshake as soon as you’ve blended it. If you want a visual appeal, then you can top it with whipped cream and garnish with Oreo cookies like I did. Also, use a tall glass for making milkshakes.  

If you are serving this milkshake to guests, then get creative and decorate the rim with crushed cookies. A fun and inviting way to serve is to decorate the glass rim for a delightful crunch and an irresistible finishing touch.

To decorate, dip the glass rim in chocolate syrup and then top it with crushed Oreos.  

You can also drizzle the whipped cream with chocolate syrup for an enhanced chocolatey experience. 

Storage Suggestions 

It is best to enjoy fresh milkshakes immediately after blending. Right after preparation they are ultimately indulgent. At this point, the flavors and textures are at their peak.

If you have leftover milkshake, then you can freeze it in an airtight container in the freezer. Just remember that the texture might be different after thawing. To fix this, place the frozen milkshake in a blender and blend until creamy consistency is achieved.

Top with whipped cream and serve.  

Tips & tricks to make the best Oreo Milkshake

  1. Oreo Milkshake Without Ice Cream: If you are into a lighter variation of milkshakes, or don’t like ice cream in the milkshake then skip the vanilla ice cream. To attain the same creamy and thick consistency, you can add frozen banana slices. 

  2. Ice Cream Creaminess: If your blender is not of high power, let the ice cream soften slightly before blending. This way milkshakes blend easily, resulting in a smoother consistency and creamier milkshake. 

  3. Use Pre-Chill Glasses: If you want to keep the milkshake frosty for a longer period then serve it in chilled glass. 

  4. Consistency: You can adjust the consistency according to your taste preferences. If you want a thicker milkshake, then reduce the amount of milk. For a creamier milkshake, you can increase the amount of ice cream. 

  5. Sweetness: Taste the milkshake before serving. If you find it too sweet, then you can balance it out by adding about 1-2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder. Alternatively, you can also add a dash of instant coffee powder or swap vanilla ice cream with coffee ice cream.

  6. Garnishing: I have garnished Oreo milkshake with whipped cream and broken Oreo cookies. You can also garnish with chocolate sauce, crushed cookies, or even with caramel sauce. 

  7. Mix-Ins: You can add some chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and a splash of fruit liquor. You can also top the milkshake with colorful sprinkles to take it to new heights. 

  8. Serving: Always remember to serve milkshakes that are chilled but not frozen as frozen milkshakes are hard to sip through a straw. If it is frozen, then let it thaw slightly before serving. 

  9. Customize: Feel free to customize the milkshake. You can make it vegan by opting for non-dairy milk and ice cream.
