FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – FAQ
CAN I USE DIFFERENT COOKIES OR CANDIES IN THIS MCFLURRY?
You sure can! I love McFlurries so much because they always ( or almost always) have different options. The most basic ones are the Oreos ones and the mini M&m’s.
They also had Butterfinger, caramel, brownie, and even cookie butter I heard. But I am saying all of this so that you know that any candies or cookies you want to add are a go. That’s the beauty of making your own homemade McFlurries!
Another thing that I love adding to my McFlurries had to be fresh fruits, berries are a top choice, but tropical fruits also will elevate your McFlurries to the next level for sure.
CAN I USE DIFFERENT FLAVORED ICE CREAM FOR MCFLURRIES?
This recipe can be made with any ice cream that you have on hand. The addition of the heavy cream won’t mess with the ice cream flavor too much so get creative with your McFlurries and let me know in the comments which one was your favorite flavor profile : )
CAN I MAKE THIS M&M MCFLURRY IN A BLENDER IF I DON’T HAVE A HAND BLENDER?
If you don’t have a hand blender you can use your regular blender or a Nutri bullet.
I decided to use my hand blender to have fewer dishes and make it right where I will be serving it.
CAN YOU MAKE this m&m’s mcflurry IN ADVANCE?
McFlurries are best made when you’re ready to enjoy them. They are characterized by their soft serve texture that comes from adding a liquid and blending.
So if you freeze your McFlurry for too long before enjoying it will harden back up to ice cream and will lose that delicious texture.
So if you need to freeze your McFlurry for a few minutes before serving, go ahead. But I wouldn’t recommend freezing it for longer than 20 minutes as it would throw off the texture.
