The Secret To Making A Frosted Sugar Cookie Protein Shake
In addition to the powerhouse blenders that I use, 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 your energy levels high and your 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. Trust me, friends -- this is SUCH a tasty way to start (or end) your day -- guilt free!
