Oreo Milkshake Recipe tips

  • Let the ice cream container sit out on the counter for 5-10 minutes before making. This helps it soften enough to make it easy to scoop.
  • To help the milkshake stay cold longer, place the glasses in the freezer for 15 minutes before making.
  • Want a thicker shake, add less milk.
  • Make this dairy-free by using dairy-free ice cream and dairy-free milk.
