Cookies and Cream Smoothie Ingredients:

Only a few ingredients are needed to make this Cookies and Cream Smoothie or Smoothie bowl:

  • yogurt – any yogurt of your choice. I prefer to use vanilla Greek yogurt
  • milk – any milk of your choice – whole milk, skim milk, soy milk, almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, etc.
  • banana – frozen (organic not recommended)
  • vanilla extract – for flavor
  • Oreo cookies – or the generic sandwich cookie equivalent of an Oreo
  • whipped cream + cookie crumbles for garnish – optional

A note on the banana: I have found that organic bananas have a stronger banana flavor. In this smoothie that is not recommended. I don’t like an overwhelming banana taste with my cookies and cream smoothie but enjoy the added nutrients and creaminess that the banana provides.

How to make Cookies and Cream Smoothie:

Only a few steps are needed to make a (mostly) healthy cookies and cream smoothie. I recommend using a high powdered blender like a Vitamix.

  • Blend yogurt, banana, and milk: the first step is to combine the yogurt, milk, frozen banana and vanilla extract. Do not add the cookies for this first step.
  • Crush Oreos – I like to put the cookies in a sealed plastic bag to crush them with a rolling pin or simply use your hands.
  • Add in Oreos: mix in 3/4 of the crumbled Oreo cookies and stir to combine.
  • Garnish: top with whipped cream and remaining crushed Oreos. For a healthier option, omit the whipped cream.

Tip: To get the right texture (similar to an Oreo Blizzard or Cookies and Cream ice cream) keep the cookies completely out of the blender. Instead, blend the first three ingredients, pour into a cup, and mix in the crumbles. Otherwise, your cookies will be pulverized into oblivion, especially if you use a Vitamix!

Often times I like to add protein powder to my smoothies to boost the protein content. However, there’s nothing I hate more than a smoothie that is frothy and fluffy from protein powder. Here is the trick to avoid that — add the protein powder at the end and mix for just a few quick seconds, just to incorporate the powder without vigorously blending it in.

To add protein powder to this Cookies and Cream Smoothie:

  • combine the milk, yogurt, frozen banana and vanilla extract – mix well
  • add in protein powder and mix for just a few quick seconds
  • stir in cookie crumbles

I recommend vanilla protein powder for this recipe.
