My six year old is very into making different smoothie and shake concoctions. Most of the time we stick with fruits, but sometimes we make a shake that’s more like dessert with a healthy flare. Our new favorite recipe is this cashew chocolate chip cookie shake. We serve it for dessert, but it actually has a lot of nutritional value in it from the nuts, milk, and banana. Sometimes we even add in a quarter cup of raw oats to make it a more filling snack.
Cashew Chocolate Chip Cookie Shake Recipe
A shake that's healthy and tastes like a cookie? Yes, please!
- raw unsalted cashews: ¼ cup
- brown sugar: 1 tablespoon
- vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon
- banana: ½
- milk: 1 cup
- ice: ½ cup
- semi sweet chocolate: 2 tablespoons, chopped
Step 1: Place the first six ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.
Step 2: Add in the chocolate chips and blend for about 15 additional seconds or until they break down into bits small enough to fit through a straw, but not so small they aren't able to be recognizable in the shake. Serve immediately with a straw.
