I actually just looked up the word smoothie online. This is the definition in case you’re wondering….
Let’s discuss # 1 for a second. Have you ever called a dude a smoothie? Oh, he’s such a smoothie. Hmm. Not so sure about that one.
This milk & cookies smoothie definitely doesn’t fit definition #1. Although this smoothie is pretty suave.
#2. Yes. OK this is a smoothie.
I looked up the definition because I feel like this smoothie is way too decadent to be considered a smoothie. In my mind a smoothie is something you fill with bananas & berries. Something that you blend with green stuff to get good stuff into your kid’s diet. You know…something on the healthy side. According to this definition, this is an actual smoothie even though it tastes like a milkshake. I think it has everything to do with the frozen bananas & cookies. It’s DECADENT. One second you get banana, and then you get a hint of cookies and BAM! There’s the peanut butter. It’s rich & creamy and will definitely fulfill your cookie & milkshake craving. It’s not just any old smoothie. It’s a Milk & Cookies Smoothie!
And we’re off!
Make sure you freeze a banana for this recipe. I have a whole stash in my freezer. You should too!
Put all ingredients in the blender. Add the ice.
Pour smoothie into two glasses…or one big TALL one like mine.
Plop in a straw.
Crumble some cookie crumbs on top and dip a rogue cookie in.
I swear it could be breakfast, lunch, dinner AND dessert.
