What is an Oreo shake made of?

An Oreo milkshake is made up of these ingredients: vanilla ice cream, milk, chocolate, sugar, vegetable oil, wheat flour, high fructose corn syrup, cocoa powder, salt, soy lecithin, vanillin (an artificial flavor).

How many Oreos is too much?

It depends on how much of an Oreo fan you are! Generally, about five Oreos should be enough for one serving of an Oreo milkshake. If you want your shake to be even more indulgent, add more Oreos and other toppings.

Is Oreo shake good for health?

A health expert would probably not recommend consuming an Oreo milkshake regularly as it is high in sugar and calories. However, if you’re looking for a treat once in a while, an Oreo milkshake can be a satisfying indulgence.

To make it more health-conscious, try using non-dairy milk or yogurt, adding in some fresh fruits, and opting for all-natural sweeteners instead of processed sugar. This way you can still enjoy the classic Oreo milkshake, but with a healthier twist. Enjoy!

To make an Oreo milkshake thick and creamy, you will need to add a few extra ingredients. Adding crushed Oreo cookies and cream cheese are both great options to thicken up the milkshake.
