This classic Oreo Milkshake is quite simply one of the best summer desserts ever!So today’s post doesn’t really need a recipe.  I mean, I’ve included one just for the sake of including one, but it’s really just 2 ingredients.  Oreos and vanilla ice cream.  How can you go wrong here??  It’s not like you can mis-measure the amount of baking powder or accidentally use cayenne pepper instead of paprika…it’s 2 ingredients, people!  Ok, I guess 3 if you count the splash of milk.  Although, truthfully, you could probably let the ice cream melt a bit and then you wouldn’t need the milk.  No matter how you do it, these Oreo Milkshakes are a classic American treat!

This classic Oreo Milkshake is quite simply one of the best summer desserts ever!I have really fond childhood memories of Oreos.  We almost always had a tin of them stuck in the cabinet that was just a little higher than I could reach.  (In hindsight, it’s probably no coincidence that my Mom kept the tin in a cabinet that I couldn’t quite reach…)  The tin was all black with a red poinsettia painted on top.  It looked like one of the tins you see for Christmas cookies, but all I know is that it held Oreos.  Lots and lots of delicious Oreos.  And whenever my Dad would reach up and pull down that tin, I knew good things were coming!

Speaking of childhood and Oreos, I used to take a bowl and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and 2 Oreos.  Then I’d use my spoon to break apart the Oreos and ice cream.  2-3 minutes of vigorous stirring later, I had something akin to soft serve ice cream full of crumbled Oreos.  I remember it used to make my parents so mad when I’d sit there and stab and stir at my ice cream.  Stab.  Stir.  Stir.  Stab.  But it was so darned good that way!  (And I’m not gonna lie, I still do that from time to time even though I’m all “grown up” now.)

This classic Oreo Milkshake is quite simply one of the best summer desserts ever!With this delicious Oreo Milkshake, there’s no need for stabbing or stirring.  Or poking or prodding for that matter.  Nope, I just let the blender do all of the hard work!  So here’s to perhaps the easiest recipe I’ve ever posted on Spiced.  Vanilla ice cream + Oreos = Nirvana (and no, not the band, people)!

  1. This is just plain torture – that shake – I swear it keeps calling my name – but I cannot handle my lactose! GAH!!!!
    This is simply gorgeous, David and so ridunculously decadent!!!
    Growing up, I used to adore ice cream (but it turned on me) and Chocolate Digestives (have you ever tried those?) -Oreos, however, I wasn’t introduced to till I was way into my teens! I was such a deprived child!

    1. Oh no! I swear I’m not trying to torture you, Shashi! I wonder if there is a way to adapt this recipe using almond milk ice cream…I mean, no-one should miss out on the simple wonder that is an Oreo milkshake! I haven’t tried Chocolate Digestives, but now I’m intrigued? I’m guess they’re in the organic section at the grocery store?

          1. Hey Drew! This recipe makes more than one cup. Depending on the size of your milkshake glasses, you should get about 2 milkshakes (maybe with a little bit leftover) from this recipe. I hope you enjoy these…they are a favorite around our house! 🙂

  2. Ohmigerd… you’re killin’ my diet!! Well, actually, my pasta carbonara with browned butter did that… but geez, I’m allowed a splurge MEAL, not a splurge DAY! lol
    Oh, what the heck… we only live once! Let’s crack into the Oreos!

    1. Oooo…mint Oreos! Now there’s a fun twist on the classic milkshake. In fact, I think I could go for one of those right now! 🙂

  3. Ooooh Oreo memories…when I was a kid every once in a while my mom came home with OREO cookies. There was no waiting for dinner or even unpacking the grocery bags. We would grab the milk, pass the cookies out evenly, and then eat them. It was one of the best moments ever.
    BTW, that milkshake looks really legit man!

    1. Thanks, Mike! Do you still have Oreo parties when you come home from the store? By Oreo parties, I mean just unpack the Oreos and go to town before they ever make it to the cabinet? Because if you do, then I want an invitation! #WolfpackEats

  4. Not REALLY an oreo fan, if these were the blond ones, I’d be all over this… HOWEVER – I would still suck this puppy down and ENJOY IT! LOL!

    1. Now there’s an idea, GiGi! Blond Oreo milkshake. That sounds delicious…if only I had a pack of blond Oreos in the house right now! 🙂

        1. Oh no! Well, we can’t have that hanging around your house…it might get you sick. You better send that over my way so that I can help you out! 🙂

    1. Hahaha! That’s the sole reason that I go to the gym in the morning…so that I can enjoy more milkshakes! We can be treadmill buddies!

    1. I kinda agree that it’s pretty much a whole meal. But I felt bad saying that a milkshake was an entire meal. Haha. It’s definitely one to split with someone…like your niece! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Cindy! This is definitely a kid’s favorite…how can you go wrong with ice cream and Oreos? Heck, this is an adult favorite, too!

  5. I made these last night for National Oreo Day, and they were delicious! I was wondering, though, how did you frost the rims of your glasses with crumbled Oreos? I got mine a little wet and rolled them around in crumbs, but they didn’t stick well; they mostly just dissolved and clumped together. But I really like the look of yours!

    1. Hey Michelle! So glad you enjoyed these Oreo milkshakes…now I want to go make another batch this afternoon. 🙂 So the Oreos on the rim comes from a little food photography trick. Just put about 1 tsp of light corn syrup in a small dish. Dip the rim of the glass into the corn syrup and then dip it into the (finely) crushed Oreos. It works like a charm! Thanks so much for commenting!

    1. Woohoo! You can never have enough Oreo milkshakes. In fact, I think they sounds great for a sleep-deprived Monday. I’m ready for Spring…but this Daylight Savings Time thing is rough today. Have a great week! 🙂

    1. Hey Jennifer! The servings will depend on the size of your glasses. I hesitated to put a serving amount here because milkshake glasses are different sizes, but this recipe created 2 large milkshakes plus a little bit leftover for me. I hope this helps, and sorry it isn’t more specific. But I hope you enjoy these milkshakes as much as we do…now I want to go make a batch for Father’s Day, too!! 🙂

    1. Ooo, good choice, Lilah! I love chocolate-mint, so I’m thinking mint oreo milkshakes would be delicious! Thanks so much for coming back and leaving a comment. Hope your weekend is going well. 🙂

    1. Hey Faby! That depends on how big your milkshake glasses are. When I make this recipe, I have enough for 2 large milkshakes plus a little bit leftover. (The leftover I eat as a little treat for me before serving the milkshakes! Haha!) Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂

    1. Hey there, N! The servings will depend on the size of your milkshake glasses. I hesitated to put a serving amount here because milkshake glasses are different sizes, but this recipe created 2 large milkshakes plus a little bit leftover for me. I hope this helps, and sorry it isn’t more specific! I do hope you enjoy these milkshakes though…they are out of this world delicious! 🙂

    1. Hey Avny! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. Unfortunately, I don’t have a way for readers to share photos on the site. I’ll just have to trust you that the photo looked great! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed these milkshakes as much as we do!
