I have a confession to make. I had never been to a Trader Joe’s until last month. Which means I had never had Cookie Butter until last month. [I know you’re shaking your head at me. I understand.] The closest TJ’s is 2 hours away in San Antonio. When I was there last month to run Foam Fest I made sure to stop by and peak around. And by peak around I mean I asked the nearest employee where the cookie butter was and filled my cart. I bought regular and crunchy and opened them both up in the car. [Don’t judge.] Then I got tired of eating the cookie butter
straight out of the jar, so I created a liquid version. Behold. The cookie butter granola smoothie!
This was the easiest and tastiest smoothie that I have ever made. And not just because it has cookie butter. [I mean that helps.] Plus its semi-healthy-ish because I used almond milk and a banana to make my cookie butter granola smoothie.
To make your own you will need:
- 1 cup Almond milk
- 1/4 cup Granola
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 large tablespoon cookie butter
Throw everything in the blender and mix until smooth. A few tips though – put your liquid in first to help move everything along. I use a frozen banana instead of ice and it makes my smoothies/shakes creamier and no melted ice issues. And yes my jar of cookie butter is sadly empty.
And thats how you make the world’s best smoothie. I feel like if I had a microphone I’d throw it down right now and walk off stage. [I’d need a stage too.]
Have you ever had Cookie Butter?
