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.

What You'll Need

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. Place the ice cream, milk, 8 of the Oreo cookies and the chocolate sauce in a blender, and puree until smooth.

  2. 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.

  3. Pour the milkshakes into two glasses, and top each with crushed Oreo cookie crumbs.  Serve the shakes immediately, with a straw.
