I totally forgot about the delicious cookie butter I made! I’ve been meaning to use it for something other than a fruit dip. I saw a FaceBook post about a bunch of ways to use cookie butter and my great idea came back. I made a smoothie with it this morning for breakfast and, let me tell you, it was MAGNIFICENT!
Apple Cookie Butter Smoothie
1 1/2 cups almond milk – I used unsweetened vanilla
1 apple, sectioned and cored
2 tbsp (or more) cookie butter
1 cup ice
1. Place ingredients in your blender in the order listed.
2. Start on low, and slowly increase the blender speed until you get the consistency you desire.
I really enjoyed my breakfast treat. I try to avoid having an excessively sweet breakfast because I just get hungry fast and end up eating things I regret. (Damn you, Girl Scout cookies on my desk!) This was a little sweet, but not over the top. I would totally make this again, and will probably make it for an after school snack for the kids. I will add some oats to it the next time I make it for myself.
If you aren’t a fan of cookie butter, you can use peanut butter or another nut butter, or that other crazy addictive goo, Nutella.
We’re in the Christmas home stretch. This smoothie will give you a lovely burst of energy to get through the last items on your list.
