Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Add the milk to your blender, starting with 1 cup, then add the rest of the ingredients. You may need to add a little more milk to reach your desired consistency.
  2. Start blending on low then slowly increase speed. Blend until smooth and creamy. 
  3. Pour into a glass and top with the optional cookie dough crumble (see notes). Enjoy right away.

Notes

Cookie Dough Topping: Add 2 small, soft pitted dates, 1 tsp of molasses, 2 tbsp of oats and a pinch of cinnamon, ginger and sea salt to a blender and pulse a few times until it forms a dough. If you don’t want to blend it, just mash it all up in a bowl. Other yummy toppings are coconut bacon or crumbled cookie dough balls.

Banana-Free/Lower-Sugar-Option: Banana can be replaced with 1.25 cups frozen peach slices or you can use half a large banana and about 1/2 cup frozen peach slices.

Additions: Add 1-2 tbsp almond or peanut butter for an extra creamy treat. For more volume and nutrition, add up to 1 cup cooked, frozen cauliflower or raw or cooked frozen, peeled zucchini.
