PB Oreo Frozen Yogurt Shake

You’d think I would’ve learned by now. You know, how to stand upright and walk without incident. Turns out, it ain’t so easy.

A year ago, I was running. But then a weird fluke fall led to a hip break, and then a foot break, so I’ve been cross-training and strength training for several months. The one day I tried running again I fell over. Again. Yes, it’s definitely me. Can’t blame the even suburban terrain on this one!

So the other day I was just walking, heading calmly to my weekly voice lesson, and down I went. I gotta tell you, I was pretty embarrassed. Especially because I wiped out right in front of a whole group of ballet dancers. Nothing is more humiliating then falling over in front of a group of stick-thin, graceful women who have body coordination. So as soon as my lesson ended, I ran home and made this fro yo shake to recover my sense of equilibrium.

Okay, I just needed to pound some sugar. I admit it! But this shake is thick and creamy and it’s made from Greek frozen yogurt and skim milk, so it’s not a crazy Coldstone-style indulgence. It sure feels like one, though!

You may notice that it doesn’t look super pretty. That’s the result of blending peanut butter Oreos into the shake. So I kind of don’t care how it looks. It tastes incredible. Case closed.

This time around, I used Safeway brand vanilla toffee flavored Greek frozen yogurt. I love toffee with peanut butter, so it worked great. But any vanilla frozen yogurt will do, Greek or otherwise. However, the slight tartness of the Greek fro yo will play just a bit better against the sweet peanut butter Oreos. So if you can get that, go nuts!

Just a quick whirl of the blender, and there you are! Therapy in a glass. Perfect for those days when you fall down in the most theatrical way possible, or for any day that you need a pick-me-up.

And mind your step! It’s a dangerous world out there.



  • 2-3 scoops vanilla Greek frozen yogurt (low-fat works)
  • 1 to 1 and 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 4 peanut butter-flavored Oreos, broken into pieces



Place the ingredients above in a blender. Pulse until the Oreos have become liquefied with the milkshake.

Pour into a glass (or glasses) and serve. Can serve up to 2 people.

Note: for an extra peanut butter kick, feel free to add a spoonful of peanut butter to the blender!



I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner. This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker. Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.

    Sounds like you’ve had your fair share of injuries, Mir! Hopefully you got that all out of your system and won’t have anymore! 🙂 And this shake? Amazing! The title alone is enough to make me drool. I love that you used frozen yogurt too, a little healthier for the summer, and that means I can drink more, right?!
