My current obsession! I’d never had a green smoothie before I tried this recipe from the Tone It Up girls. Easily one of the best decisions I’ve made, so don’t be discouraged by the spinach or avocado. You can up the protein powder to a full scoop if you want the smoothie to be more filling. Both versions are equally delicious!
Cookie. Dough. Batter. Consumption.
I remember being a little girl helping my mom make chocolate chip cookies, and just waiting for her to leave the kitchen for just one moment so I could sneak a few bites from the bowl. After all, I think we can all agree that the batter is better than the actual cooked cookie. I think we can all also relate to when mom caught us eating the dough, getting the whole “don’t eat the dough because your tummy will get upset from the raw eggs” spiel. But did that ever stop us? Nope! Our love for cookie dough batter outweighed all risks. And if we did happen to get a belly ache, it was totally worth it.
Now, I don’t know about you all, but I am still very fond of chocolate chip cookie dough; but, if I ate it in it’s true form every time I get a craving, things wouldn’t be pretty. While there is nothing like the real deal, I do try to find healthier ways to enjoy the same cookie dough flavor. This recipe is one of many ways that you can welcome “cookie dough” back into your life, without the risk of a belly ache or sacrificing your clean eating efforts 🙂
And it’s in frozen yogurt form! How cool is that?!
UHH…YUM! I had this for a snack today. SO good! And it’s super easy too! All you need is these four ingredients and you’re set!
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (either a blend of whey and casein, like MetRx or casein)
2 oz plain greek yogurt (I like Chobani)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp (15 g) 70% dark chocolate chips/chunks
1. Mix vanilla protein powder, greek yogurt and a little water together with a spoon until a smooth consistency is reached.
2. Add vanilla extract and stir.
3. Add chocolate chips and stir.
4. Put mixture in the freezer for at least 30 minutes for a soft serve consistency. You can leave it in for less or more time depending on how soft you want the texture to be.
