Disney's California Adventure Ice Cream and Frozen

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream is my son’s favorite flavor of ice cream. I’ve been working on this homemade recipe for a while and consistently get “yummy” reviews from everyone who comes over and tries it. Whenever possible, I like to make our ice cream homemade as it’s just so simple and delicious.

I saw this fantastic milk shake offered at Disney’s California Adventure for Mickey’s 90th birthday and just had to come up with a version at home. To make the shake, combine the ice cream and milk in a glass and stir to combine. You can also use a blender if you prefer. Top the milk shake with whipped cream, two Oreo cookies as the mouse ears and top with Mickey inspired sprinkles. I created the buttons a bit different from what they did in the park. I used a red candy melt and attached a yellow M&M with a little left over frosting I had in the refrigerator. You could also melt the candy melt a little to attach the M&M. Add a Mickey colored paper straw and serve. It’s cool, smooth, refreshing and oh so good!

Mickey Cookies ‘n Cream Shake

I decided to use my homemade Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream to make the Mickey Cookies ‘n Cream Shake from Disney’s California Adventure. The shake is part of the celebration for Mickey’s 90th birthday. It is super smooth and yummy with loads of whipped cream and sprinkles.
