Cookies and Cream Milkshake Recipe

A recipe for making a cookies and cream milkshake similar to the one offered by Chick-fil-A


  • To make a chocolate Chick-fil-A milkshake, add ½ cup powdered chocolate drink mix to the blender.[5] For even more chocolate, you can drizzle a bit of chocolate syrup over the whipped cream on top.
  • To make a strawberry Chick-fil-A milkshake, replace the vanilla ice cream with strawberry ice cream and add ½ pound of fresh strawberries to the blender. Garnish with additional strawberries, if desired.[6]
  • If you’d like to make a cookies & cream Chick-fil-A milkshake, add in 8 whole chocolate sandwich cookies and blend as described above.[7] You can also add ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips to the mixture.[8]
  • Make Chick-fil-A’s banana pudding milkshake by adding 1 ½ tbsp of banana cream instant pudding mix and 5 crushed vanilla wafers.[9]

  • According to Chick-fil-A’s website, the vanilla milkshake can have as much as 550 calories per serving, with the chocolate, strawberry, and cookies & cream versions adding even more.[12] If you’d like to reduce the calorie count, try using low fat ice cream or soy milk in the recipe.[9]
