A Chocolate-Covered Guest Post

Hi friends ๐Ÿ˜€ Itโ€™s been a crazybusyawesome day over here, so Iโ€™m very excited to post this guest post from a very good bloggy friend, Katie ๐Ÿ™‚

Sheโ€™s the mastermind behind so many delicious vegan recipes (banana bread in a bowl? yes please), and I was so glad she stopped by!

See ya in the morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi chocolate pudding pops!

Iโ€™m Katie, of the blog: Chocolate-Covered Katie, and Iโ€™m so super-honored that Gina asked me to write a guest post for her, because I think sheโ€™s basically the coolest thing since sliced bread (or sliced chocolate cake. Whatโ€™s so cool about sliced bread anyways?).

Lately, Iโ€™ve been on a raw-milkshake kick, giving healthy makeovers to sinful milkshake flavors such as:

cake batter milkshake

Cake-Batter Milkshake

With healthy milkshakes on the brain, I knew thatโ€™s what I wanted to write about today. So hereโ€™s my healthier (and 100% raw) version of a chocolate chip cookie dough milkshake:


Raw Cookie Dough Milkshake

(Based off the Mint-Chocolate Chip Milkshake)

  • 1 frozen large banana, as ripe as possible
  • cacao nibs (or chocolate chips), and raw oats (blend some in the shake, and save some for the top)
  • 2/3 cup milk (For an extremely rich, โ€œice creamโ€-like shake, try coconut milk. Also, use more or less, depending on desired thickness.)
  • A few raw Cookie Dough Balls (pictured below)
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, a pinch of sea salt
  • Optional: Add a pinch of xantham and guar gums (or just reduce the milk) to turn the shake into pudding or ice cream.

Blend everything together and pour into a glass.

Then proceed to crumble a Raw Cookie Dough Ball on top.

Voila! Liquid Cookie Dough!

On my blog, I try to show that healthy food can taste amazing when itโ€™s prepared the right way. One shouldnโ€™t have to choose between good health and good taste; you can have your cake (preferably chocolate!) and eat it too.

Please do stop by sometime, at Chocolate-Covered Katie, and say hi. I love meeting new bloggie or reader friends! Smile
