I’m in love with anything that’s sweet.
Cakes, cookies, chocolate, ice cream, you name it. I have a sweet-tooth so huge that I could eat a whole cake (and I have on many occasions… that’s what cheat days are for right?)
Eating clean + having a sweet tooth doesn’t really go well together. So, I have scouted far and wide and found this amazing recipe that is sweet, salty, caramelly with a little bit of spice and everything nice.
This smoothie tastes exactly like a cookie. It’s the absolute guilt-free sweet treat, and it takes just under 5 minutes to prepare. And, without the extra fat, calories and sugar! This is perfect for those after-nap hunger pangs, or a mid-afternoon snack, even as a dessert.
This smoothie has been a lifesaver for me, when I just wanted to eat a whole bar of chocolate.
HEALTHY 5-MIN SKINNY VANILLA COOKIE SMOOTHIE
This recipe has been adapted from gimmesomeoven.com!
1/4 cup oats (rolled oats, porridge oats all work fine)
1 frozen (peeled) banana
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1-2 tsp. liquid sweetener (honey, maple syrup, agave)
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground ginger (I used grated ginger, it works fine, you can omit this if you don’t like ginger)
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional if you like a Christmas cookie flavour)
pinch of nutmeg (optional)
Add oats to blender and pulse until finely ground.
Add remaining ingredients and pulse until blended smooth. Serve immediately.
When I drank this smoothie, I actually had to savour its rich, creamy flavour. It felt like I was drinking melted vanilla cookies. It was that good.
So, what’s the cheat food that you totally love? I’m a huge sweet-tooth! I love cakes, especially cheesecake, mmm.
Hope you guys like this recipe!
Till next time lovelies,
