This thick and creamy Oreo milkshake is made of vanilla ice cream, classic Oreo cookies, and milk. It is topped with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Get ready for a treat!
There is something about an Oreo milkshake that brings me back to magical summer days as a child. Classic vanilla ice cream is blended with nostalgic Oreo cookies and topped with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. It's a pretty unbeatable combination.
These shakes are so thick and creamy and are just as good as (if not better than) the ones you might get at your 31 Flavors or Dairy Queen. Plus they only take 5 minutes to make and are far easier on your pocketbook. What are you waiting for? Time to start blending!
Why You'll Love This Oreo Milkshake Recipe
Just in case you need a little convincing, here are a few of my favorite things about these Oreo shakes.
- Quick and easy. It only takes 5 minutes and a blender to make these gloriously simple Oreo shakes.
- Thick and creamy. No one wants a watered-down milkshake. You don't need to worry about that here. These shakes are thick and creamy but not to the point where they can't be sipped down by a straw. They are perfect.
- Packed with Oreos. If you're an Oreo lover like me you know how disappointing it is when you get an Oreo milkshake that is basically just vanilla with a slight hint of Oreo. This shake is far from having that problem. It's chock-full of Oreos.
- Adaptable. This is a great base milkshake recipe. Feel free to play with it and make it your own. Swap the Oreos out for a different cookie. Use chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla. Have fun with it!
I wanted a Jack in The Box CopyCat Oreo Shake because theirs is SO thick and you get chunks of Oreos as opposed to finely blended Oreos.
What You'll Need
Here's a list of ingredients you will need to make Oreo milkshakes. Only 5! Be sure to scroll to the recipe card below for exact measurements.
- Good Quality Vanilla Ice Cream - I like Tillamook's vanilla ice creams. French vanilla in particular is my favorite. But feel free to use another brand you like.
- Milk - I recommend using whole milk here for a richer shake but 2% will do just fine.
- Oreos - I used regular chocolate Oreos but you could use double-stuffed Oreos instead. Feeling adventurous? Try Mint Oreos or another fun flavor.
- Whipped Cream - Grab a tub of store-bought whipped cream or make your own. Try my Chocolate Whipped Cream if you are in an extra chocolatey mood.
- Chocolate Sauce - Grab some from the store or make your own. You could also try my Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce if you'd like.
What's The Best Ice Cream To Use?
The ice cream really carries this whole recipe, so I recommend aiming for a high-quality product. Find a brand you like that carries vanilla flavor/s and pick your favorite variant. When it comes to vanilla vs vanilla bean vs French vanilla, the choice is yours. They will all yield delicious results.
Want suggestions? I am a big fan of Tillamook's vanilla bean and their French vanilla ice cream. Dreyer’s and Haagen-Dazs also make great vanilla ice creams.

Oreo Shake Topping Ideas
Aside from whipped cream and chocolate sauce, there are a bunch of fun ways to top these Oreo milkshakes. Here are some of my favorites.
- Cookie crumbles. Crumble Oreo cookies or chocolate chip cookies over the top of the whipped cream.
- Chopped candy bar. Chop up a Snickers, Heath Bar, or another favorite candy bar and sprinkle it on top of the shake.
- Caramel sauce. Drizzle my Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce over the whipped cream instead of or in addition to the chocolate sauce.
- Shaved chocolate. Grate a bar of milk or dark chocolate over the top of the milkshake.
- Sprinkles. Make this a celebratory dessert drink by adding rainbow sprinkles to the top.
Can You Make Homemade Milkshakes In Advance?
While these milkshakes are best consumed right away, you can make them in advance. If you plan on consuming the shake within a few hours, you can pour it into a cup and place it in the refrigerator for later. Just note that it will melt the longer it sits.
If you need to store the milkshake for longer, use the freezer. Follow the recipe all the way through, just leave off the whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Seal the shake in an airtight container. I suggest a plastic container that is just a little bigger than the milkshake. Keep the milkshake in the freezer for up to one month. When you are ready to enjoy, allow it to thaw at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before stirring and enjoying.
