EVER BETTER™ Snack Recipes: Grown-Up Milkshake & Cookies
We wanted to make our final installment of healthy snack recipes for spring a special one, so we asked our friends @the4tastebuds to come up with a fun spin on a childhood favorite – milk and cookies! Their challenge: create a “grown-up” version suitable for evening gatherings, keep it low in sugar and carbs, and make it yummy. Good news…they definitely rose to the occasion with this amazing and simple recipe for EVER BETTER™ Grown-Up Milkshake & Cookies! You can whip up a single serving as a treat for yourself any time of the day or take some inspiration from this recipe and blend up a batch to serve at parties in martini glasses.
This recipe features our Chocolate Chip Love! Protein Cookie Bites, but you can use any of your favorite flavors and mix and match as you please!
What makes our Grown-Up Milkshake & Cookies EVER BETTER™?
- We swap out regular ice cream for healthy, low sugar and low carb unsweetened almond milk with a hint of vanilla flavoring.
- To create that milkshake consistency, blend the almond milk with ice cubes and a sliced banana for some added flavor plus nutrients like potassium.
- Our EVER BETTER™ Protein Cookie Bites replace traditional cookies, and are loaded with wholesome ingredients including protein and probiotics. Plus, these bites are low sugar, gluten free, and keto friendly.
Here’s what you’ll need for your Grown-Up Milkshake & Cookies:
- 3-4 EVER BETTER™ Chocolate Chip Love! Protein Cookie Bites per drink, or the flavor of your choice. Feel free to mix and match for a variety!
- Unsweetened vanilla flavored almond milk, about 6 ounces for each serving
- Ice cubes
- Sliced banana, one for each serving
- Fresh berries for garnish
Then, it’s as easy as 1-2-3 to make:
Add ice cubes and sliced bananas to your blender and pour in the almond milk
- Blend until smooth and at the desired consistency; if you need to make it thicker you can add more ice cubes and/or banana slices
- Pour into a martini glass, or glass of your choice, and press 3-4 EVER BETTER™ Protein Cookie bites onto the rim of the glass and garnish with fresh berries
