The first time I made this recipe my sons’ eyes lit up with a whole new level of love. What’s not to like, right? You can use whatever milk you want for this recipe, from 1% to whole, but in the case of a milkshake I always think whole milk is the way to go. It’s a milkshake after all!
You can of course serve this in 4 glasses for more moderately sized milkshakes. And click here to try a strawberry milkshake as well.
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup milk
- 8 Oreo cookies (or any type of chocolate sandwich cookie), plus 2 more for garnish
- 1 tablespoon chocolate sauce
Place the ice cream, milk, 8 of the Oreo cookies and the chocolate sauce in a blender, and puree until smooth.
Crush the remaining Oreo cookies by placing them in a zipper-sealed plastic bag, and pounding on them a few times with a rolling pin until they crumble.
- Pour the milkshakes into two glasses, and top each with crushed Oreo cookie crumbs. Serve the shakes immediately, with a straw.
