A McDonald’s McFlurry has been a treat for Americans and Canadians for over two decades. Although McDonald’s was founded in San Bernardino, California, it was in 1995 in Bathhurst, New Brunswick (Canada), that McFlurries actually came into existence.

Thanks to the creativity of our northern neighbors, we in the US can enjoy a McDonalds McFlurry simply by heading to our local McDonald’s. If you have a blender, you can even make a copycat recipe in your own home. Wherever in the world that you may be!

How To Make an Oreo McFlurry

McFlurry ingredients

To make an Oreo McFlurry copycat at home, you need the following ingredients:

  • 4 ounces Cool Whip
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • ¼ half and half
  • 6 Oreo cookies (crushed)

You start by place ice cream and Cool Whip in blender and blend until it’s creamy. If your ice cream is slightly softened to being with, this will be super easy.

Next, add half-and-half slowly to loosen up the mixture.

A bonus about making these at home is that you never have to worry about the ice cream machine being broken and wasting a trip to Mickey D’s.

What is a McFlurry?

Basically, a McFlurry is vanilla soft-serve ice cream whipped with candy and it is on par with a Dairy Queen Blizzard. (However, there are more varieties of Blizzards such as the Mint Oreo, Choco-Dipped Strawberry, Cookie Dough, Brownie Dough, and Oreo Mocha Fudge Blizzard.

In the United States, McDonald’s serves three flavors of McFlurries – Oreo, Oreo Shamrock, and M&Ms.

Substitutions

Making a copycat McFlurry is easy and you don’t have to be tied down to the ingredients in this recipe. If you don’t want to use Cool Whip or half-and-half, you don’t have to.

The main thing is to have a soft enough ice cream that you can blend in your toppings. If your ice cream is too soft, then you end up with an Oreo Milkshake, which is not too bad either.
