Ahhh…there is seriously nothing better than a cool, creamy, and chocolatey frozen drink to cool off on a hot summer day! Better yet if it tastes like cookie dough and it’s so thick that you need to eat it with a spoon!

The Secret To Making A Healthy Cookie Dough Smoothie!

But how do I keep this decadent-tasting protein shake light and healthy so that it doesn’t weigh me down? I like to think that I’ve perfected the fine art of smoothie-making with a few simple tricks and special ingredients…

First, the almondmilk! My go-to base for any smoothie is Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk because it adds a creamy texture with a hint of vanilla flavor…for only 30 calories per serving.

And I’m not the only one who think this beverage is great! Almond Breeze has partnered with Team USA Volleyball to help fuel the elite athletes through some of their most grueling summer workouts. A hot, sunny, and sandy beach session = a mandatory protein-packed SMOOTHIE!

How To Make A Cookie Dough Smoothie Packed With Flavor!

But this isn’t just any smoothie. Part-milkshake and part-cookie, this high protein shake is the best of all worlds! My other two secrets for a cookie-like shake are raw oats and butter flavoring! That’s right — raw oats are pureed right into the drink, giving it a thicker, chewier, and more dough-like consistency. Plus, the addition of whole grains gives the smoothie more staying power to keep energy levels high and cravings at bay!

The Butter Flavor, which can be found near the vanilla extract on the baking aisle of your grocery store, gives the smoothie that rich, buttery taste that you would expect in a traditional cookie.

Paired with the vanilla-flavored almondmilk and the bits of chocolate chip throughout, you can trust me when I say that this is truly a tasty way to start (or end) your day — guilt free!

    Loving this! I have recently started loving smoothies and this just looks so delicious! I love the addition of imitation butter flavor! 😀

    1. Blair says:

      I agree, Shadi! This time of year has me craving smoothies in the morning even more than usual. I even have them for afternoon snacks sometimes when it’s HOT and I need something refreshing. Always does the trick!

  6. Phillip says:

    I add a handful of spinach, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 3-4 tiny carrots to get my veggies in without tasting them. I have a mental aversion to vegetables but my Dr. says I need to eat them. This is a match made in heaven. Thank you ma’am for helping me on my way to eating healthier.

    1. Blair says:

      That’s awesome, Phillip! It’s all about balance, right?! 🙂

  8. Robin S. says:

    I can’t wait to make this! By butter flavor do you mean like Mccormick butter extract? Or a type of product like Molly mcbutter?

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Robin! It’s the McCormick butter extract (or any other similar brand). Enjoy!

        Thanks!! I have an Insta page called This Nanny Cooks, will be making this and posting soon!

  9. Crystal says:

    This recipe sounds amazing! I don’t think the nutrition info can be right though? It says 5 grams of protein but there’s a scoop of protein powder in it.

    1. Blair says:

      You’re right, Crystal! That can’t be right. 🙂 The nutrition panel is automatically generated, so sometimes they’re not correct. I just went in and tried to fix it manually. Thanks!
