A Sunday Smoothie

Hey all!  I hope your Sunday is going well.  Is the heat getting any better where you’re at?  It’s been surprising cool in San Antonio the last few days . . . and by cool I mean in the low 90s of course.  I already crave Ice cream on the regular but the heat has got me craving it in a mad way lately.  It’s only made worse by the fact that there is a frozen custard stand only a mile away from where I live.  Eek!  Fortunately the other night I was watching some more Revenge and having a glass of wine when my craving hit.  This is fortunate because the wine meant I couldn’t go get some frozen custard unless I wanted to walk there in traffic at around 1030 PM.

Instead, I attacked my kitchen in search of something comparable to a custard milkshake.  This isn’t like custard at all but the frozen chocolate chip oatmeal cookie  flavor is there and it destroyed my cravings in a delicious & nutritious way. 

Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie

  • 1/16 tsp Almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla (add more if you love vanilla)
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon (your taste, I love cinnamon too)
  • 1/4 c oats
  • 1/4 c plain yogurt (I used greek)
  • 1 chopped frozen banana
  • 3/4 c milk (I used almond)

Optional:  1/8 c chocolate chips, greens

Layer ingredients according to list (greens first if using) and then blend until desired consistency.  Then add 1/8 C chocolate chips and blend again to desired consistency.  I added some more on top so I had some bigger chocolate pieces.
