Tips, Variations + Storing Info

Make a milkshake without a blender: If you don’t have a blender then you are still in luck. There are a couple different ways you can still make this delicious shake without it. 

  • Add all the ingredients (except the ice) to a bowl and mix it all with a hand mixer or with a whisk.Be sure to crush up the Oreos first and add a little extra milk, if needed, so it blends together easily.
  •  Make it with a glass that has a tight fitting lid. Just add all the ingredients to the glass (except ice and crushing the Oreos first) and screw the lid on tight. Then shake vigorously until it is mixed well. Stir in crushed Oreos. 

Color: Blending the Oreos together with the ice cream does give a grey tinted hue. If you would rather, you can blend everything up without the Oreos. Chop the Oreos with a food processor then, gently fold the Oreos into the shake using a plastic spatula. 

Make Oreo shake without ice cream: Taking the ice cream out of the recipe can alter the taste and texture of the shake. A good alternative would be to use Mint Frozen Yogurt. There are also several brands of dairy free mint ice creams as well. 

If for some reason you cannot find mint flavor, you can sue mint Oreos and add a drop or two of mint extract to get a more minty flavor. 

Milk: Whole milk will help the shark be more creamy but any percentage will work. If you cant have milk you can use unsweetened almond, chase or coconut milk .

Tips and Tricks:

  • You may want to let the ice cream soften for 5-10 minutes (let it sit on the counter) so it is easy to scoop out.
  • If you need your milkshake to stay thick for longer then place the cup or glass it is in into the freezer for 10-15 minutes before serving. 
  • If you are wanting to crush your Oreos before making the shake, put them into a ziplock bag and seal it tightly. Then crush them with a rolling pin until desired texture. 

STORE leftovers short term covered in the fridge. For longer storage you’ll need to freeze it. When you want to eat it let it thaw a bit and then re-blend. 

My favorite way to store leftovers is to make it into ice cream popsicles. The kids love it too.
