We go through stages in our house, so we have summers of iced coffee, milk shake mix ins and now our current favourite is this shake. It’s not healthy but if you calculate it into your daily ‘treats’ it really isn’t so bad. Plus we have super healthy green smoothies almost every morning (and I frequently have one instead of lunch with the addition of protein powder). I also use it as a vehicle to get kefir into my children – don’t add too much but it can carry a couple of tablespoons a head.
I’m not really an Oreo fan as I’m not a shop-bought biscuits kinda gal, but here, whizzed to helpless crumbs with good vanilla ice cream and thick, creamy milk, something magical happens and you get a malty, chocolate milk shake that’s simple but full of depth. Don’t think about it too much.
You do need a blender for this. And just up the proportions according to how many you need to make for:
2-3 Oreo cookies, flavour of your choice. Or any other chocolate cookie
125ml milk (we use raw for added goodness)
65g good vanilla ice cream (we use Green and Black’s)
You just put everything into a blender and blend for 30 seconds.
