BANANA OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIE SHAKEOLOGY


Here I go again, shaming Shakeology and turning one of my favorite desserts into a *nutritious* shake! Read it [the ingredients] and weep, ya'll. This ShakeO packs a serious nutrition-punch: oats, banana and spinach? Can you say fiber & protein packed? Oh, you can't? It's because your mouth is too full with this delectable dessert-like shake, isn't it? Knew it.

You know the drill - throw all of these ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth:

  • 1 packet Vanilla Shakeology

  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats

  • 1/2 frozen banana (fresh is fine, if need be, but frozen makes it creamier!)

  • 1 cup raw spinach

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (not cinnamon sugar - this puppy is sweet enough!)

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened original almond milk

  • Ice to your liking/thickness

So, here's where the raisins come in... You can either add a teaspoon of raisin extract in place of the vanilla {yea, it's a for real thing - found, where else, Amazon!} or add a tablespoon of actual raisins - which is what I did. The thing is, my blender didn't really...blend them all that well. But I didn't really mind! I got the flavor and the crunch - and I'm totally a crunch girl. Actually, they're more like a "chewy" than a "crunchy" but I can still did a "chew." Anyway, I digress. All you need to know is that it tastes like an oatmeal raisin cookie, and that makes me as happy as a girl eating dessert for dinner {and not gaining an ounce from it}! Are there any dessert flavors that you would like to challenge me to turn into a ShakeO?? Because I am SO up for the dessert challenge. Leave your suggestions, requests and flavors below!

Psst... Fancy dessert for dinner, huh? Add these to your arsenal:
