Cookies & Cream Protein Smoothie

Cookies and Cream Protein Smoothie Recipe

You’ve come to the right place, if you’re looking for a protein-rich smoothie that sips more like a dessert. This recipe swirls a fruit and a veggie (surprise!) together with a chocolatey treat for a take on the classic cookies n’ cream shake.

Simply grab your blender, a package of chocolate cream-filled sandwich cookies, like Oreos or Newman O’s, some frozen cauliflower (surprise!), and get going!  

Cauliflower is loaded with healthy fiber, which gives this blend a thickness that’s more in line with a milkshake than a smoothie. And the cruciferous veggie has a little of almost every vitamin your body needs: vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus. (Wow!)

But how does this smoothie taste? Cauliflower has a neutral flavor that’s easily over-shadowed by the organic cocoa powder in Mama Love Chocolate Protein, and the chocolate cookie bits are just scrumptious!

If you’re not feeling especially daring, and you don’t want to use frozen cauliflower, simply toss in a few ice cubes to get a similar thick, frothy texture.

Not sweet enough for you? Soothe that sweet tooth by adding a dollop of maple syrup to the blender, too. Yum!

Ingredients 

  • ½ Banana, frozen
  • ½ cup Cauliflower, frozen
  • 1/3 cup Mama Love Chocolate Protein
  • 3 Chocolate Cream-Filled Sandwich Cookies, crumbled
  • ¼ tsp. Vanilla Bean Powder (or Vanilla Extract)
  • 1 cup Oat Milk, unsweetened 

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Too thin? Add ice cubes for a thicker smoothie. Too thick? Splash in more oat milk or water to thin it out. Garnish with another cookie or more crumbles, if you'd like, and serve cold.
