You can have “cookies” for breakfast with this Snickerdoodle Cookie Smoothie! It’s gluten free, vegan, and high in protein so you can start your day with a delicious protein boost! My recipe is also featured at Silk.com
Who said eating cookies for breakfast was a bad thing? Sure, if they were corn-syrup loaded cookies from the store, but you can have your favorite cookie any time of day with this Snickerdoodle Cookie smoothie.
This smoothie is loaded with good things, like protein, healthy fats, fiber, and yummy cookie flavors! It contains only fruit-based sugar from dates so you can still feel good if you’re cutting back on cane sugar.
This smoothie is not only super-tasty, but it is also relatively low in calories. By using Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened instead of skim milk, you save 50 calories in this smoothie!
I have been working hard to cut back my sugar intake (especially cane sugar), so this is the perfect sweet treat for me that won’t send me into a sugar hangover. I love using Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened because there is absolutely no sugar whatsoever, which makes it much easier for me to meet my calorie and sugar goals.
Unsweetened and unflavored almond milk lends itself to many recipes very well – especially this Snickerdoodle Cookie Smoothie.
So, go ahead and drink up! Have a Snickerdoodle “cookie” for breakfast guilt-free – your taste buds (and your body) will love it!
