In the mood to indulge in one of your favorite childhood flavors? Whether you’re craving Oreos or another similar type of cookie, we’re here to give you a healthy alternative to fulfill that craving! This Cookies and Cream “Oreo” Shake has all the beloved tastes of the addictive cookie without all the sugar, processed ingredients, and unnecessary additives.
Blended with 310 Vanilla Shake, unsweetened almond milk ice cubes, almond butter, liquid pasteurized egg whites, cacao powder, cacao nibs, and vanilla extract, this Cookies and Cream Shake is both thick and creamy, and reminiscent of a classic indulgent diner shake. Unlike your typical ice cream smoothie, this nourishing alternative offers an impressive 30g of protein and 17g of heart-healthy fats to keep you energized, satisfied, and totally on track with your health goals.
Before we get to the full recipe, continue reading for a few of the standout health benefits that this shake has to offer!
Decadent “Dessert-Like” Taste: 310 Vanilla Shake
For the “cream” aspect of this Cookies and Cream Shake, we added a scoop of ultra-rich and satisfying 310 Vanilla Shake. This meal replacement powder – which is sweetened solely with plant-based Stevia – adds creaminess and vanilla bean notes to this drink. Not to mention, the vanilla extract in this recipe helps enhance and boost the flavors in the 310 Vanilla Shake to take it over the top as an indulgent dessert.
With plant-based proteins, (including pea, brown rice, and pumpkin), you’ll also flood your body with fiber to help keep you full and support optimal digestion. Not to mention that, (unlike any package of Oreos or processed cookie you’ll find), this shake is packed with nutrients.
Added Protein: Liquid Pasteurized Egg Whites
Next, don’t be taken aback by this next ingredient! Liquid pasteurized egg whites are a fantastic way to add a “whipped” quality to this Cookies and Cream Shake, for that smooth and enjoyable texture you’re seeking. You may not know this but whipped egg whites are frequently used in drinks such as teas and lattes to create a thick “foam”, so why not incorporate it into your shakes?
Not to mention, egg whites are also very high in protein, for not that many calories. This makes them one of the best foods to support your weight loss and weight maintenance goals, while also helping you feel your best!
Note: Just make sure you're buying "liquid pasteurized" egg whites that usually come in a carton - because we definitely don't want to be consuming raw eggs!
Chocolate-y Flavor: Cacao Nibs/Cacao Powder
The last ingredient we’re going to highlight in this recipe is cacao nibs and cacao powder, for the beloved, chocolate crisp cookie aspect of this smoothie! Cacao nibs add both nice texture and a slight crunch to this recipe, along with immense cocoa flavor. Both cacao nibs and cacao powder are also high in antioxidants to help support a healthy immune system.
Plus, because cacao nibs and cacao powder are lower in sugar than regular chocolate, you can indulge in this Cookies and Cream Shake without worrying about the adverse effects of regular sugar on your health!
