The McDonalds McFlurry comes in a 12 oz cup and comes with Oreos or M&Ms. This site will show you how to make them at home for much less and no special kitchen equipment is needed. The McFlurry is basically just soft serve ice cream with crushed up cookies or candy. I got tired of paying over $4 for these every time my son wanted one of these so I decided how to make these at home to save some money.
Homemade Soft Serve
You don't need one of those expensive ice cream machines to make soft serve at home.
Vanilla Ice Cream
- fill your cup 2/3 of the way full with ice cream
- drizzle in a very small amount of milk
- stir to desired consistency
- it should be thicker than a milkshake
NOTE: If it gets too runny add more ice cream of put in the freezer for a few minutes to refreeze.
Cookie or Candy Mix Ins
Use your imagination to crumble in candy bars like Almond Joy, Butterfinger, Nestle Crunch, Kit Kat, M&Ms, Reese Pieces, Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, thin mints or Twix or what ever you like.
Crumble up cookies or cakes like brownies, oreos, graham crackers, sugar cone pieces, waffle cone pieces, vanilla wafers.
