Hey, it’s Saint Patrick’s Day this week, so let’s make something fun and festive. Time to put some Bailey’s in our milkshakes.
Creamy Bailey’s Cookies and Cream Milkshake
If you’ve never tried a Bailey’s cookies and cream shake before, friend, you’re going to love it. Cookies and cream is such a good combo with a bit of Irish cream.
It’s just fun.
Making a Shake Without a Blender
And quick note before we get to the recipe: If you don’t have a blender or have already had a little too much Bailey’s and don’t want to operate heavy machinery, 😉 you can actually make this milkshake without a blender. It won’t be as thick and creamy as a blended shake, but it will still be boozy and delicious.
- Simply crush the Oreos in a plastic bag with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
- Scoop your ice cream into a large (quart-size works well) mason jar or other microwave-safe jar with a lid.
- Microwave ice cream for just 15 to 30 seconds (WITHOUT THE LID) until it is softened but not fully melted. Then add the milk and Bailey’s, screw on the lid, and shake shake shake until blended.
- Add cookie crumbs and use a spoon to mix, and to smoosh any stubborn remaining bits of ice cream.
- Then drink (responsibly!) and enjoy.
