Cookie Dough Smoothie

My friends often ask each other silly questions, such as, if you had three drinks on tap for the rest of your life, what would they be?! (excluding water)

While in Costa Rica, a month ago, I discovered one of my three drinks. The folks at Blue Spirit Retreat center made an amazing “cookie dough” smoothie that was sweet, refreshing, and nutritious. Although no longer in the sun of Costa Rica, I have recreated it in the winter of Maine and it tastes just as good!

Recipe:

  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 6 dates
  • Handful of chopped almonds
  • 1 tbsp of maca powder
  • 1 tsp of bee pollen
  • 1 tsp of cacao nibs
  • Handful of ice

In the blender, add the “cookie dough” ingredients, and blend until smooth. Pour into a mason jar with a Cuppow lid. Drink immediately and enjoy!

Yield: 1 Cup
