Ingredient Notes

Ingredients to make a chocolate mint milk shake recipe.

Hot on the heels of making this fig and ice cream dessert recipe, we started with one of my favorite ice cream brands as the base of the shake.

This Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream is DELICIOUS and makes this recipe very easy.

Then we put a spin on the traditional cookies and cream flavor by using mint-flavored OREO thins. OMG. I’d never had a thin OREO before and they are amazing.

Like, hide from the children so you don’t have to share, amazing.

Step 1

Add the ice cream to the blender.

Making a grasshopper milkshake recipe couldn't be easier to make with kids.

Step 2

Break up the cookies a little to help them blend well then add them to the Ninja.

If you have a Nija or other high-powered blender you don’t really need to do that. It pulverizes like a beast.

That’s it. So simple. Garnish with an extra cookie.

My kids love to make this chocolate mint grasshopper milkshake recipe!


Gummy worm garnish is totally optional.

Drizzle with chocolate sauce and top with whipped cream for an even better milkshake.

If you want more peppermint flavor you can add a small splash of peppermint extract.

You could also use peppermint chip ice cream instead of cookies and cream. Then just use regular Oreo cookies.
