Oreo Milkshake



Back when I was 14, I had my first job at a bubble tea place at the mall. One of the biggest perks of that job was that we got to make ourselves a free drink every time we worked.

In the beginning, I hated bubble tea, so what I would make myself every day were milkshakes.

Keep in mind, this is a really skinny 14 year old who didn't know better and never gained weight. I am not advocating this as a lifestyle choice (but if only...)





Ever since I quit, I haven't really made many milkshakes at home. Which is really weird because what is better than a drink which is pretty much purely blended ice cream? I'm always on board for drinkable desserts, (oatmeal raisin smoothie or pecan square milkshake anyone?) and drinkable desserts involving everyone's favorite cookie? Swoooon.

Because who wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to get their sugar fix when it's such a nice day?

I am so ready for you, summer.





What you'll need:

-4 scoops ice cream
-4 Oreo cookies
-1/2 cup milk


Directions:

    1.   Combine all ingredients in a blender, and puree until smooth.

  1. We have a place that serves bubble tea here and I've never gone in because I'm not sure what that is. Haha I love milkshakes and I know my daughter would love to make one of these today :D

  5. Oohh..la...la....who can resist this milkshake? Definitely not me and working at a bubble tea or any milkshake place would be an occupational hazard for a fatty like me hee..hee...

  6. Mmm, I remember making milkshakes at home. Icecream, milk, and sometimes a little bit of hot chocolate powder, mash mash mash with a fork (kitchen machines and mixers were still a little out of my repetoire at this point...And the fork worked surprisingly well :P) and it was the most delicious thing on a hot Summer's day! Or just when I needed comfort in a tall glass, mmm! x

    1. OH! And I only tried bullbe tea for the first time this year. I got the "fruit" based one, which was a little too sweet for me. Next time I'll go for one that is milk based! Have you since come to like the bubbles? x

  15. I really don't make "enough" milkshakes either (but what is enough). I think this oreo version needs to be next on my agenda.

  16. I always wonder what the proper ratio of ice cream to milk is for a milkshake, so thank you. This sounds amazing. My hubs is always asking me to make milkshakes for him and he loves oreos, so I will def be giving this a try!! :)
