Dan's Oreo Milkshake recipe

Friday, 17 July 2015

It's not often my husband emerges from the kitchen and presents me with something he has made. The occasional beans on toast. An annual Mother's Day roast. Anniversary steak and chips. All of which, I'm very grateful for. But this. This is on another level.

I didn't see it coming and to say it was delicious is a colossal understatement. 

This is Dan's Oreo Milkshake.

A couple of you asked for the recipe after I posted the photo on Instagram. So, as promised, I quizzed the milkshake master and can now share his wisdom with you ;)

I must admit, it's only a few ingredients and a blender. Hardly a Blumenthal-esque concoction, but he assures me the ratio of cookies to ice cream is critical. 

Who am I to argue...?

You will need: 

(1 serving)

6 Oreo cookies (5 for the shake and 1 to crumble on top)
2 scoops vanilla ice cream (Dan is of the opinion that Haagen Dazs vanilla makes a superior shake)
200ml milk (more if you prefer a thinner consistency)
Squirty cream

Put all your ingredients, aside from the cream and the one extra Oreo in your blender. Blitz until smooth. Pour, top with squirty cream and crumble your last cookie on top. Enjoy and try not to think about the calories. It's worth it.

Hmmm I might try making this with a spoonful of peanut butter added to the blender next time. I'm wild like that!

Let me know if you try it.
