Snickerdoodle Smoothie

Do you like Snickerdoodle cookies? Then your are going to love this smoothie!

Unlike the cookies, this smoothie is healthy; so you don’t have to feel guilty while slurping it down.

Turning the unhealthy into healthy is what we do around here :)

The inspiration for this recipe came from someone who emailed me asking that I create a healthy Snickerdoodle smoothie recipe. I searched the internet for recipes and found they were all quite unhealthy because of suspect ingredients and way too much sugar!

It’s unfortunate that so many smoothie recipes are unhealthy as it often gives smoothies as a whole a bad name. Just like with other meal recipes, the ingredients dictate whether healthy or not. When you make smoothies at home and only include healthy ingredients, you control your own smoothie destiny and can be assured the results are healthy.

This smoothie isn’t that thick. Simply add 1/2 avocado for a creamier consistency. Enjoy!

Snickerdoodle Smoothie Recipe

The Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raw milk or nut milk of choice (I used almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A dash of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey to sweeten

The Optional Add-ons

  • 1/2 avocado for more of a pudding consistency
  • 1/2 tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 cup spinach, kale, or other leafy green for a green Snickerdoodle
  • 1 serving of your preferred protein powder or gelatin

Show Time

Place all of the ingredients into your blender and blend for around 30-45 seconds or until nice and smooth.

    Hello

    I’m afraid I’m not making this smoothie or any other that has 23g sugar and 15g fat – how can you claim this is healthy? I think most of your smoothies have high levels of sugar and fats.

      Hi Sue,

      Regarding fats, please read this article of mine where I explain the importance of consuming ample amounts of the right kind or healthy fats:

      Regarding sugar, this smoothie is borderline high. Although the sugar is from natural sources and will be buffered by the healthy fats. You can reduce or omit the honey to reduce sugar content.

      Regards,
      Ryan
