I tend to hate making recipes that I claim taste "just like" something else, because I never want to disappoint someone who is really craving the real thing. But this time, I'm confident enough to say that this smoothie is basically COOKIE IN LIQUID FORM!
|Doesn't that look good?|
*Note: I didn't really measure things before tossing them in the blender today, so these ingredients are just estimates! You can tweak as you like!
OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIE SHAKE
1 frozen banana, broken into chunks
2 T. rolled oats
2 tsp. raisins
1/3 cup low fat cottage cheese (you can't taste it, honest!)
1 scoop vanilla whey powder
1 packet stevia
1/2-1 cup almond milk
3 ice cubes (I used frozen almond milk so it doesn't dilute)
1/4 tsp. xantham gum (optional, for thicker shake)
Blend it all up until it's nice and thick and creamy! I topped mine with some more raisins and granola for a little bit of a crunch! Slurp it up and try not to get a brain freeze! This smoothie is full of muscle-building protein, healthy fiber, natural sweetness… and it's low-fat too!
