Do you ever wish you could eat a cookie for breakfast? Without feeling guilty about it? Yeah, me too. I’ve been tinkering in the kitchen with an idea that will satisfy my early morning sweet tooth, but also give me a healthy start to the day. And friends, I’ve finally mastered it. This is a smoothie that has all the wonderful flavors of an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, but with healthy ingredients like oats, nonfat yogurt, skim milk, and our childhood favorite—Ovaltine. It’s like drinking a frosty cup of oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I love this smoothie for breakfast, but I’ll be honest with you, I’ve made this a few times for dessert too. It’s delicious. Try it out!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Smoothie
4 full graham cracker rectangles
1/2 cup non-fat plain yogurt (or vanilla)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chocolate malt mix (such as Ovaltine)
1 cup skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup oats
24 ice cubes
Add graham crackers, yogurt, brown sugar, chocolate malt mix, milk, and vanilla into a blender. Leave these to sit for two minutes together, allowing the graham crackers to soften. Add chocolate chips, oats, and ice cubes and blend everything on high for 2-3 minutes, or until ice cubes have been finely chopped. Serve immediately. Makes approximately four servings.
