This recipe lets you enjoy a refreshingly sweet and decadent Oreo cookie-flavored iced coffee in just minutes.
So grab your favorite glass and get ready to mix up some summertime magic with this easy-to-follow guide on making an Oreo cookie flavored iced coffee.
What’s in an Oreo Iced Coffee?
You have several options when it comes to enjoying an Oreo-flavored iced coffee at home.
If you’re not into making fresh coffee recipes at home, pop open a can of premade International Delight Oreo iced coffee.
You can find this product on Amazon, and it rings up at just over $3 per 15-ounce can. Although the price is higher than making it at home, it’s still cheaper than buying one from your local coffee shop.
And if you want to try whipping one up in your kitchen, you’ll need simple ingredients, including real milk, cold coffee, ice, Oreos, and ice cream.
Add a little chocolate syrup or crushed cookies for that “wow” factor, and that’s it!
It’s a simple recipe for an iced coffee drink with the just-right balance of creaminess combined with the magical taste of Oreo that will have you begging for more!
Options for Customizing this Oreo Iced Coffee Recipe
One of the great things about this little iced coffee miracle recipe is that it’s easily customizable.
Feel free to use whatever type of different coffee you have on hand. I used leftover coffee from this morning to recreate this decadent drink.
Cold brew coffee is a great option for this drink because the slightly more robust flavor contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the authentic Oreo flavor.
You can either steep a batch of your own cold brew or buy pre-made cold brew concentrate.,
Or you can substitute the dark roast beans of chilled espresso for the coffee portion. It’s really up to you and what you have available!
Skim milk works well for this recipe as it balances out the rich flavor of the cookies.
But you can also try almond or oat milk if you’re avoiding dairy.
And if you want to skip adding cookies to this drink, try substituting the taste of Oreo cookies with flavored coffee creamer. Options for an Oreo-flavored creamer are limited, but there is a huge variety of other flavored coffee creamers on the market.
A scoop of vanilla ice cream is the perfect finishing touch to this decadent iced coffee drink, but feel free to skip it if you’re watching calories.
You can substitute frozen yogurt or non-dairy ice cream if you’re avoiding dairy.
Or try my easy 2-ingredient soft top to satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth!

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between iced coffee and cold brew?
Iced coffee is generally made with a regular drip brew machine and then cooled with ice. Cold brew coffee is coffee brewed with cold water over a longer, usually 10+ hours, period.

Cold brew and iced coffee are generally interchangeable in most recipes; however, iced coffee will have a milder flavor than cold brew.

Can I make this drink with decaf coffee?
Yes, you can definitely use decaf coffee. Decaf is a great way to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee without caffeine-induced insomnia.

Can I make this drink with non-dairy milk?
Yes, you can easily substitute almond or soy milk for regular dairy milk in this recipe.
