What You Need

  • 2 cups Vanilla Ice-cream
  • 1 cup Whole Milk or Half and Half for a richer taste
  • ¼ tsp Peppermint Extract
  • Food Coloring Green, few drops.
  • 10 Oreo Cookies
  • ¼ cup Whipped Topping like Cool Whip (optional)
  • Sprinkles Green Sanding Sugar, Maraschino Cherries, (optional)

Directions

  1. Place 8 Oreo Cookies in a Ziploc bag and bash it with a rolling pin or a heavy pan till its crushed. Take care not to completely turn into powder. We want chunky pieces. Keep aside 2 tablespoons for garnish.
  2. In a blender, combine ice cream, milk, peppermint extract and few drops of food coloring.
  3. Blend together at high-speed until smooth.
  4. Divide the crushed Oreo into the two serving glasses.
  5. Pour the milkshake and gently mix with a spoon.
  6. Top each glass with a couple of tablespoons of whipped topping (optional) and tuck an Oreo on the side.
  7. Decorate with the reserved crushed Oreos, green and white sprinkles, green sanding sugar or Maraschino cherries (optional).

Notes

1. The amount of food coloring is a personal choice. For the cool minty green color in the photos, I added 8 drops of green food color.

2. Do not add the crushed Oreos directly in the blender along with the ice-cream. The Oreos will dissolve in the shake and give it a slimy green color, which would be very not pretty.
