Sometimes when I'm feeling really desperate, sad, stressed or angry, I hop in my car and drive to the nearest McDonald's. Without a second thought, I order the largest McFlurry they have and eat it like a hyena on the drive home. There's just something so incredible about those darn McFlurries.

To save myself the shame and embarrassment of these McDonald's runs, I decided to whip up a homemade version of this sweet on-the-go treat. Made with chunks of cookies and sweet and crunchy M&M's, this homemade McFlurry is even better than the drive thru (with far less shame, too).

  • 1 tablespoon half and half creamer
  • Handful of M&M's for the top
  • Chopped Oreo cookies for the top


  1. Add 1/4 cup of the Oreos, ice cream, milk and creamer into a blender. Blend on low until smooth. Remove from the blender and stir in the remaining cookies.
  2. Pour the mixture into a glass and garnish with M&M's and Oreos.
