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.
Hope you enjoy!
