Oreo smoothie with vanilla ice-cream

Who doesn't love Oreo cookies?

There have been a lot of recipes for Oreo cookies smoothie and they're all yummy. Today I just want to share another recipe for this lovely drink which has popped out of my imagination on a hot day. The ingredients are easy to find and the best thing is that you can improvise as long as it suits your taste. And believe me, it's real good! Here's how to make it.

Ingredients (make 1 cup)
4 pieces of Oreo cookies
1 scoop of vanilla ice-cream
1-2 teaspoons of chocolate sauce or chocolate syrup (I use Hershey's)
1 cup of ice cubes or crushed ice

Optional ingredients
2-3 tablespoons of sugar-free milk
Whipping cream
1 tablespoon of crushed almonds or cashews

Just blend all of them together. Serve with whipping cream and crushed almonds on top. Add a little of chocolate sauce or chocolate syrup for a tasty look. Yummy!


Vanilla or chocolate is better?
You may want to change from vanilla ice-cream to your favourite chocolate ice-cream. It's fine but you don't want to lose the cookies flavour, do you?

Not too much chocolate syrup!
Again, control your lust for chocolate as it will dominate the oreo flavour. Or you might just use chocolate syrup for decoration. It's still yummy as ever!

Think of the texture!
Here's when the milk comes into use. If the whole texture is too thick, add some milk (1-2 tablespoons) and blend for a little more. The thickness also depends on the amount of ice cubes you put in.

However, this drink is not quite suitable for those who are on a diet because of its amount of calories (you can see in the ingredient list). You can still make a small cup once in a while because, you know, Oreo is always good.
