While I’m busy perusing fall baking magazines, going crazy over college football and getting excited about soups and stews, apple cider, and anything pumpkin….
It’s still in the 90′s here.
So, when I had the idea for a sugar cookie milkshake, I knew I had to try it–before the last of the summer heat dissipates (anytime is fine, thankyouverymuch). Plus, since I didn’t actually use any ice cream in the shake, it’s fairly healthy. Right?
Of course, you certainly could use ice cream in this, but believe me when I say you really don’t need to (wanting to is a completely different story, and had I had vanilla ice cream in the freezer, I might have done it. ).
The frozen bananas provided plently of thickness, and since I used coconut milk, it was very creamy and smooth.
Aaaaand, I might have had one of these before dinner instead of waiting until dessert.
Being an adult is seriously awesome.
serves one. Seriously, this tastes just like a sugar cookie! Add a bit of cinnamon for a snickerdoodle version.
- 2/3 cup milk (I used coconut milk)
- 1 frozen, sliced banana
- 1/4 cup sugar cookie mix
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Slurp and enjoy!
