Cool shake for a hot holiday weekend

I found this recipe in All you magazine's June 18th issue. I haven't made it yet, but plan on making it soon. I'm also thinking of using lowfat oreos, 1% milk & lowfat ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Cookies-and-cream milk shakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Yield: Serves 2Cost per Serving: $0.95


5 chocolate sandwich cookies such as Oreos
2 cups vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
1/4 cup milk


Place 3 cookies in a ziplock bag. Seal bag and crush cookies with a rolling pin. In a blender, combine ice cream and milk. Blend until smooth. Add crushed cookies and pulse a few times just to blend. Pour into 2 tall glasses and garnish each with a cookie (or a dollop of whipped cream drizzled with chocolate syrup, if desired).
