This Oreo iced coffee is a decadent breakfast treat! Made with only 3 ingredients in 15 minutes. Real Oreos are melted in coffee to give this drink an authentic Oreo flavor.
Flavored coffee drinks are easy to make at home and taste just as good as drinks from a cafe.
Or, choose one from this list of unique latte flavors.
- Oreos + Coffee. The Oreo cookie adds a chocolate, mocha flavor to the iced coffee while the creamy center adds a sweet vanilla flavor. Combined, it tastes like an oreo coffee milkshake.
- Made with real Oreos. The Oreo flavor in the iced coffee comes from real Oreos. There are no syrups or artificial flavors added, which means it tastes even better.
- There are only 3 ingredients. You just need Oreos, coffee and milk to make this drink.
Ingredients & Substitutions
- Oreos: Use regular, classic Oreos for this iced coffee.
- Coffee: Prepare your favorite type of coffee. Don’t add any sugar until you have made this drink. The Oreos will add a lot of sweetness.
- Milk: Use 2% or 3% milk. If you want a non-dairy option, replace this with almond milk or oat milk.
Step 1: Pour hot, freshly prepared coffee over two full Oreo cookies. Let it sit for a few minutes until the cookies have broken down. Stir to fully dissolve the cookies.
Step 2: Pass the coffee mixture through a strainer. There will be some cream chunks that do not fully dissolve. Separate these out.
Step 3: On a small pan over low heat, heat the Oreo centers and the milk, stirring to melt the Oreo cream centers. Don’t let the milk boil. Heat only until the centers have melted, then remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes.
Step 4: Pour the Oreo coffee mixture into a glass prepared with fresh ice.
Step 5: Pour the Oreo milk mixture on top of the iced coffee. Optionally top with whipped cream and extra Oreo cookie crumbs.
This Oreo iced coffee is best served fresh, as soon as it is made.
That being said, you can save time when putting the drink together by preparing some steps ahead of time.
Save time by preparing cold brew coffee in advance, or chilling your coffee in the fridge overnight. You can also melt the Oreo centers in the milk and store this in an airtight container in the fridge overnight.
Don’t mix the ingredients together until you are ready to serve.
If you are left with any leftovers after preparing the iced coffee, first remove any remaining ice to prevent watering down the drink.
Scoop off any extra whipped cream as this will not store well.
Store the rest of the iced coffee in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a couple of days.
- Pour the coffee over the Oreos while still hot. The Oreos will dissolve in hot coffee faster than in chilled coffee.
- Don’t let the milk burn. Heat the milk and Oreo centers on low heat. Use just enough heat to melt the cream centers. Remove the mixture from the stove as soon as the mixture is smooth.
- Top with whipped cream & Oreo crumbles. This iced coffee is finished off perfectly with a dollop of whipped cream and crumbled Oreo cookie pieces.
- Flavored Oreos: Experiment using Oreos that have flavored centers. Try making this drink with mint Oreos, chocolate Oreos or caramel coconut Oreos.
- Oreo Mocha: Add a couple scoops of chocolate syrup in this coffee to turn it into an Oreo Mocha Iced Coffee.
- Vegan: To make this iced coffee vegan, replace the cow’s milk with almond or oat milk.
This recipe uses more Oreo centers than Oreo cookies. Use up the leftover Oreo cookies to make an Oreo crust, such as in this billy miner pie.
If you want an even sweeter drink, add in extra Oreo cookies. You can double the number of Oreo centers added for extra sweetness.
