Cookies and Cream Milkshake has decadent cookies blended with either homemade vegan vanilla ice cream (or your favorite store-bought ice cream for an even easier recipe!). This milkshake is similar to an Oreo milkshake, but it's vegan, dairy-free, and doesn't contain all the added ingredients that are in an Oreo.
How to make cookies and cream milkshake
The first step is to make my homemade Hot Chocolate Cookie recipe without marshmallows. I found when making this recipe, the chocolate cookie tastes EXACTLY like an Oreo cookie without the creme filling.
Second, you can either make my homemade vegan vanilla ice cream recipe or buy store-bought ice cream. Whichever you prefer! The cookies are added to a blender with ice cream, some dairy-free milk like coconut milk, a dash of vanilla, and a pinch of sea salt. Blend on high until smooth. Pour in two glasses and top with a few crushed cookies.

How to make chocolate ice cream from vanilla ice cream
Do you want to make your milkshake even more chocolatey? Add 2 tablespoons of cacao or cocoa powder to the ice cream base before adding to the ice cream maker. It's so fudgy and delicious!
How to make ice cream without an ice cream maker
If you do not have an ice cream maker, you can make this recipe using the “freeze and stir” method. Mix all the ingredients together in a freezer-safe bowl and place in the freezer then stir every 30 minutes until completely frozen. The ice cream may appear icy, but do not worry. The blender will help it get smooth and creamy.
Ice cream maker
The electric ice cream maker I have is from Cuisinart. I love it! I keep the drum in the freezer at all times so I can make ice cream whenever I want. Most of my ice creams take about twenty minutes from start to finish. Another reason I like this ice cream maker is it has an opening on the top where my kids can peek in and watch the ice cream being made. It's a fun appliance to get your kiddos helping out in the kitchen!
