Do you love Oreo cookies? Our family absolutely loves those tasty treats, especially when they're whipped into a copycat Chick-fil-A cookies and cream milkshake! This delicious dessert takes just three basic ingredients and a couple minutes to make.
Fortunately, this drink takes only 3 basic ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge and pantry.
- Oreo Cookies: Standard Oreo cookies are the right choice here. Using Double Stuf or flavored Oreos will give you a different result.
- Vanilla Ice Cream: Chick-fil-A uses their IceDream, which is actually ice milk rather than ice cream. Use a good quality ice cream for a creamier texture.
- Milk: This thins the shake to make it blendable and drinkable. We like to use whole milk for creaminess.
- Garnish: You'll need some whipping cream and maraschino cherries. This is optional, so feel free to omit it if you're watching your calories!
See recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
- Mint: use mint Oreos instead and add a little peppermint extract. You can even use mint chocolate chip ice cream instead of vanilla.
- Double Stuf: this will make your shake a little bit lighter and more creamy.
- Double Chocolate: use chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla. Drizzle chocolate syrup on top of the shake.
- Blonde Shake: use the golden Oreos instead.
How to Make
Gather the ingredients. You'll need about 9 scoops of ice cream, 8 Oreo cookies, and ⅓ cup of whole milk. The whipped cream and maraschino cherries are an optional garnish.
Crush the Oreos in a zip-top plastic bag with a rolling pin.
Place the ice cream, milk, and crushed cookies in a blender.
Blend on low speed until smooth, then mix on a higher speed for a few seconds.
Pour the shake into two glasses.
If desired, garnish with the whipped cream and a cherry.
There are 610 calories in a small Chick-fil-A milkshake, with 780 in the large. Our recipe is 603 calories for an 8-ounce serving size, which is higher, but keep in mind that we're using a higher calorie icecream. Chick-fil-A using Icedream, their signature ice milk. You can always lower the calories by using lowfat frozen yogurt instead.
Yes, they do! That's why our copycat recipe definitely includes some Oreos for the distinctive look and taste you love from the CFA shake.
A small is $3.25, and a large is $3.85. If you're making shakes for a whole family, it's cheaper to buy the ingredients and make your own at home.
Chick-fil-A uses their IceDream, which is soft-serve ice milk. Substitute with a good quality vanilla ice cream, and preferably one with a higher fat content, as it will give you a richer, creamier shake.
Make Ahead: Blend up the shake, pour it into glasses, and cover them with plastic wrap. You can freeze the shakes for up to 2 weeks like this. Make sure to let the shakes defrost at room temperature for 30 minutes before drinking.
- Keep the ice cream in the freezer until right before you use it.
- Skip crushing the Oreos in advance if you have a powerful blender.
- Pour leftover shake into glasses, cover with plastic, and freeze until ready to enjoy.
- Omit the garnish if you're watching your calories.
