I sipped this smoothie while watching our brand-new fish, Francisco, swim leisurely through his bowl and in and out of his castle. It was Sunday morning after a run, and I was so happy to just chill and relax… with a cool, yummy smoothie! The smoothie would actually work great as a dessert, I just had it for breakfast because I felt like it. It’s a free country, and no one ever passed a bill stating we can’t have something chocolatey for breakfast, with chunks of peanut butter cookie dough and elegant fruity flavor. If someone ever does pass that bill, I will start the French revolution or something to get that person out of office, because this smoothie was AMAZING! (And included calcium and fiber, making it sort of acceptable that I had it for breakfast.)
The only reason I’m writing this as a post, not a page is because it’s very similar to a couple smoothies I’ve already put up: it’s basically a combination of the Strawberry Cookie Dough Sensation Smoothie and the Pumpkin Chocolate Cake Concoction Smoothie. It would almost be redundant to have a whole page just for this smoothie – but I still want to put it up, in case someone wants this recipe someday. So here goes:
Chocolate Cookie Dough Berry Smoothie
When I make up these smoothies, I sort of just throw things that seem like they’ll taste good together in the blender, mix it up, and hope it tastes okay. It’s rarely horrible – it’s hard to go wrong entirely with a smoothie – but there are some times that it’s just okay or cliche, and other times where I take the first sip and my taste buds start giving a standing ovation, and I think, I’m in for a special treat with this smoothie. Well, this was one of those. It’s perfectly balanced and tastes indulgent, with no absence of valuable nutrients.
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Jello pudding “Original” chocolate vanilla swirls flavor snack cup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
1/4 cup Eat Pastry brand peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough (in the refrigerated section of Whole Foods market)
Blend all the ingredients except for the cookie dough in the blender until smooth. Then, add the cookie dough in several smallish globs and blend for just one second. (Try not to overblend at this part, or you won’t have distinctive cookie dough chunks in the smoothie.)
Pour into a glass and chill.
