Looks like indulgence, tastes like indulgence but this smoothie is like an undercover agent for healthy. Secretly packed with protein, you could eat this for breakfast and be full all morning long! 3 powerhouse ingredients that stack up to the traditional cholesterol filled breakfast foods, plus the added benefit of no refined sugar. But don’t worry, no bananas were harmed in the making of this smoothie.
When Silk came to me about the newest recipe creation challenge they were looking for, I practically jumped out of my seat, raised my hand and yelled “Pick me! Pick me!’ Smoothie hacks, food hacks really, are one of my favorite areas of this world we call blogging. This is so up my ally. And of course I already had my idea in my brain…
World, meet the vegan salted caramel pretzel oatmeal cookie smoothie. Smoothie meet the world. And scream about how you have HIDDEN protein all inside your amazing self. This baby will stop anyone in their tracks, especially those nosy types that keep worrying about your protein amount. *insert eye roll* No powders, no bananas, all whole foods blended together to get this thick, creamy, cookie in your mouth kinda smoothie. And it all starts with my absolute favorite, Silk cashew milk, unsweetened of course!
PS- #3 likes his Silk too…
So what’s the secret you ask? Well, I have three little hacks that not only pack in protein, but contribute to the crazy creamy delicious flavor. In one serving, these guys give you 14 grams of protein!
Protein powerhouses in this salted caramel oatmeal cookie delight:
- White beans, yep you heard it right!
- Oatmeal, gluten free if needed.
- Cashews, because duh! Cashews are life.
So no excuses here! Grab your nearest blender, pack it up with protein and drool worthy ingredients, and start blending your way toward this flavor bomb of a smoothie.
