Posted September 24, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Sept. 2015) / 8 Comments

Run away! Our Monty Python dessert is coming straight for you! Then again, maybe this isn’t such a bad thing, since these Flying Cow Milkshakes are absolutely delicious…and royally decadent! Made with homemade coconut ice cream, Oberweiss milk, and Oreos—they’re a sweet, refreshing reward after a long, hard day of being taunted by Frenchmen.


Flying Cow Milkshakes

“Fetchez la vache!!!”
— Monty Python and the Holy Grail



As you can see, there are only 3 scoops of ice cream here in the picture, rather than 6. Even with the air conditioner on full blast, my apartment was super hot the day I made this, so 3 scoops was all I could get out of the container before it started melting. Can’t wait for the cold weather to get here!
  • 6 large scoops coconut ice cream (I made my own using this recipe and just replaced the vanilla with coconut extract, but you can use store bought ice cream if you don’t have a machine)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Oberweiss milk
  • 16 Oreos (I used Thins, which I’ve found keep a crisp, delicate crunch when combined with the ice cream)
  • 2 dollops Cool Whip
  • 2 maraschino cherries

Makes 2 milkshakes



      1. Set two of your Oreos aside to use as a garnish. Coarsely chop the rest.
      2. Add your milk and ice cream to a blender and blend until smooth.
      3. Stir in your cookie pieces. As another option, you can chuck them into the blender with the other ingredients before blending (this will completely pulverize them). I prefer to stir them because I like large, crisp chunks of cookie in my shake.
      4. Pour into two tall glasses. Top with Cool whip, cherries, and your leftover whole cookies.
      5. Serve to your knights as a post-battle snack…but keep an eye on the skies! You never know when the Frenchmen might start throwing cows again!

    This sounds yummy! I’ll have to find somewhere to buy coconut ice cream since I don’t have a machine. Sadness. 🙁 Also your only being able to get out three scoops of ice cream due to hot weather made me laugh. XD Hot weather is not a cook’s best friend. You have to be so careful with your food in it or everything gets melted or wilted or water and basically gross. XD

    • I know for sure there’s a coconut variety of the Talenti brand. It’s technically a gelato, but it should still work. You just might want to use a little less milk. You can also add a little coconut extract to plain vanilla ice cream. It will taste a little different, but still good.

      I am SO over the heat, and it not even just the weather. My apartment is always hot (the kitchen is never below 80 degrees, even in winter). I’ve actually sworn off making anything with frosting until I move because it just melts everywhere. When I made Katniss Cakes for the Hunger Games last November, I had to keep popping them in the freezer between pictures and repiping the melted parts. I think it really shows in the final shots, so my goal is to remake them and get better pictures early next year.
