Prep Time5 minutesminutes
Total Time5 minutesminutes
2 ½cupsfrench vanilla ice cream, softened
whipped cream, optional
two maraschino cherries, optional
In a blender, crush cookies with a few good pulses.
Add ice cream, milk and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.
Pour into 2 tall glasses and garnish each with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
The Right Ice Cream: Regular vanilla is good, but for the best copycat, use French vanilla ice cream - and always add a little extra vanilla extract.
Thaw the Ice Cream. The biggest and best tip? You have to let the ice cream sit on the counter and melt a little before using it. I let mine sit on the counter for about 10 minutes. You know it’s ready to go when you can easily measure it out in a measuring cup.
Blender: Using a powerful blender gives you the perfect texture! If you don't have one, the milkshake will still be great - just not quite as true to the original.
Cookie Swaps: While the original is perfect, every now and then we like to swap in different flavored Oreos. The birthday cake Oreos are a personal favorite of mine, and Jorge loves peanut butter Oreos in his!
