It’s summer, people.

That means new pool, flip flops, sunny days, healthy choices, lifestyle changes, and…oatmeal cookies!

Wait, whuh?

Almond milk poured into a blender to make oatmeal raisin cookie protein shake

You heard me!

Yep – who says eating healthy and getting that summer bod means we have to give up the things we love, like oatmeal raisin cookies?

I know I, for one, surely don’t.

Well…mostly.

I LOVE finding ways to enjoy treats in healthier ways.  Like with these coconut bites or these pancakes or this yummy burger.  Such (healthy) goodness!

And, alas, like turning an oatmeal raisin cookie into a protein shake.

Because why on earth wouldn’t you want an oatmeal raisin cookie protein shake, am I right?  Awesome.

In fact, that’s one of the best things about making your own protein shakes because you get to choose all sorts of creative flavors and make them all healthy.

Since a real oatmeal raisin cookie is gonna be filled with lots of processed sugar, butter (hello: saturated fat!), refined and processed flour, and possibly even other badness, I’ll choose the option that’s full of lean protein, dietary fiber, and healthy unsaturated fats. Thank you very much.

How to Make an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Shake Vegan

Want to know how to make it dairy free and/or vegan? Simple. It all comes down to what kind of protein powder and milk to use.

In this case, just substitute the vanilla protein powder with a vegan option, like soy or hemp protein powder. Brown rice protein powder is another great option and one of my personal favorites, because it’s high in fiber, gluten-free, lactose-free and full of B vitamins. Brown rice protein is also easily digestible and less likely to cause an allergic reaction.  This recipe already uses almond milk so you’re set there.

The way I see it: following a healthy lifestyle is all about making those healthier, more positive choices, step by step, and day by day.  Eventually, it adds up to something awesome and you can see how far you’ve come.

We’ve all gotta start somewhere, right?  Why not start with a tasty protein shake that tastes like a cookie is all I’m sayin’…

So, this January, this year, this LIFE, instead of reaching for that sugary, processed cookie, try something just as sweet and delicious.  Your tastebuds and your body will thank you.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Ice
Instructions
  1. Add unsweetened almond milk, banana, old fashioned oats, vanilla protein powder, raisins, ground cinnamon, and ice into a blender. (I find that starting with the almond milk makes the job a lot easier on the blender.)

  2. Now, blend until the mixture is totally smooth. It should take about 30 seconds or so, depending on your blender. Because we added raisins and uncooked oats, it can take a little longer than you might think to get them fully pureed.
  3. At this point, check the consistency of the shake. If you want it thicker, you can add more ice or, if you want it a little thinner, you can add a little more almond milk.
