Our cookies and cream milkshake brings all the cows to the yard. And they’re like, that’s better than ours.
Aside from the early 2000s hit, a cookies and cream milkshake brings to mind images of decadent cookie crumbles perfectly swirled inside scrumptiously sweet cream, perhaps topped with whipped cream and a cherry. It also brings to mind astronomical calorie counts approaching the 1000 range.
Well, how about we make a Cookies & Crème milkshake with less than 300 calories? Oh, and let’s make it vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free too.
NadaMoo’s 11th flavor, Cookies & Crème, is the brainchild of two local businesses that share a commitment to creating health-conscious desserts that never disappoint in flavor. This vegan take on a classic ice cream flavor combines NadaMoo’s sweet crème base with cookie crumbles from Better Bites Bakery in Austin.
To make the shake, blend 1 cup of Cookies & Crème NadaMoo and 1 cup of non-dairy milk until creamy. Top with vegan cookie crumbles, dairy-free whipped cream, cherries, sprinkles or whatever else your little heart desires, and enjoy!
This simple shake not only contains significantly less fat and calories than its traditional version, but also features the benefits of plant-based fats that we discussed in our Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries blog. One could argue that we have concocted the crème de la crème of milkshakes. Give it a try and make sure to share your creation using #nadamoo, that is, if it lasts long enough for a photo.
