Author: Lori Vaughn



  • 5 large scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 6 mint Oreos, insides only *see note for a few variations
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 2 mint leaves or 1/4 tsp mint extract (optional)
  • 1 drop green gel food coloring (optional)

Toppings (optional)

  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • chocolate syrup
  • additional oreos
  • mini chocolate chips
  • maraschino cherries



  • Remove the filling from mint Oreos. Set aside the filling for the milkshake and put back the extra cookie portion for another time or for toppings.
    (You can also use the cookie part in the milkshake for a "mint cookies and cream" style of shake instead of just mint. Just know it will turn your shake brown.)
  • Put the scoops of ice cream, Oreo filling, and milk into a blender. Blend until all combined. Add additional items based on preference:
    -Add additional milk if you prefer a thinner consistency
    -Add either additional Oreo filling, mint leaves, or mint extract if you prefer a stronger mint flavor
    -Add 1 drop of green food coloring if you prefer a stronger green color
  • To make your own whipped cream, combine heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar into a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Serve immediately and top as desired with a cherry, sprinkles, or Oreo!


*Mint Oreo Substitution: Using the insides of Mint Oreos makes for an EXTRA creamy milkshake, but you can also just double the amount of mint extract instead! 
*Can I double?: Yes! This recipe doubles and triples just fine as long as your blender can fit it!
