Who doesn’t like cookie dough. As I kid, I loved to help my mom making cookies and have some raw cookie dough to taste. Today, however, even though I still think it tastes good, I don’t eat real cookie dough anymore haha! I made this super healthy smoothie and it really tastes like cookie dough. You will be surprised. When I had it, I was pretty amazed by the result. I tried to make an un healthy food taste and be a healthy food. And it tastes pretty much like cookie dough.
I made this cookie dough smoothie with almond milk, almond butter, dates and superfood chia seeds, raw cacao nibs, maca and lucuma. I also added ice. There is no banana or added sugars, and no real cookie dough either:) But the mix of all these ingredients make an incredible result. I love to use super foods in my cooking and not only they have very high level of nutrients, but also because they bring a particular taste or texture to the smoothie.
Maca is a popular Peruvian root vegetable that has been used for centuries to increase energy, libido, and help to balance hormones. Lucuma is a fibrous, yellow fruit, native to South America, that is high in B-vitamins, beta-carotene, and antioxidants. Lucuma is often referred to as Incan Gold and has been a Peruvian symbol of fertility for several millennia. It’s normally used as a natural sweetener. It has a low glycemic index and it goes very well in smoothies and desserts. It has a light, maple flavor. It’s a safe sweetener for diabetics. In North America, we normally buy it in its powder form in health food stores, or online. The fruit itself is often eaten raw in its native countries.
This cookie dough smoothie is raw, vegan, gluten and soy-free. It makes a delicious snack or healthy dessert. It serves 1 but feel free to double to recipe to serve more. I bet your kids will love that one!
