Thick and smooth, this delicious homemade Oreo Milkshake combines the best of both the chocolate cookies and vanilla dairy free ice cream to craft the perfect homemade milkshake with chocolate sauce.
Not too long ago I realized I'd committed a serious mom fail. Quite honestly it stopped me in my tracks as I thought to myself, "How did this happen?"
You see while my family was visiting extended family in Salt Lake City. One evening we were feasting on burgers at a local burger shop.
That's when my kids noticed one of our relatives enjoying a creamy milkshake with her meal. As in, stop the train -- my kids just stared looking dumbfounded at this goodness in a cup.
They even asked her what she'd ordered and then it dawned on me. My kids had never seen a milkshake, let alone tasted one.
I couldn't believe my daughter was 10 and never enjoyed a thick and creamy milkshake. It was in that moment I knew what I needed to do.
To put it another way, within a week I had purchased this milkshake maker from Amazon and was perfecting my recipes.
Of course, there were no qualms from the kids as they enjoyed every moment as official milkshake taste testers. Would it be any surprise then that my homemade oreo milkshake recipe quickly became one of our favorites?
This homemade oreo milkshake recipe is not only straight forward, but you'll also find this recipe to be creamy and thick every time!
homemade oreo milkshake recipe notes
- dairy free ice cream --2 certified GF and vegan brands are So Delicious and Nada Moo!
- dairy free milk -- we always have unsweetened almond milk on hand for such occasions, however use your favorite dairy free milk
- oreo sandwich cookies -- gluten and dairy free brands include Glutino and Kinnikinnick KinniTOOS chocolate cream sandwich cookies. Keep in mind Glutino does manufacture their "oreo" cookies with other dairy products and doesn't clarify their manufacturing process in regards to dairy, while KinniTOOS is a very allergen free friendly brand. You will find their long list of "free from's" on their website along with their manufacturing processes here. If you are sensitive dairy cross contamination, I would suggest the KinniTOOS brand.
- vanilla extract
- optional toppings: dairy free chocolate syrup, dairy free whipped topping like So Delicious Coco Whip, maraschino cherries or sprinkles.
- milkshake maker or a blender -- we purchased this retro, drugstore soda fountain style milkshake maker
