#SundaySwirl: Cookies and Cream Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but being in college often has me reminiscing about how easy I had things as a child – and the sweet snacks I was provided after a long day at school that involved Oreo’s or Chips Ahoy!

And, this week’s #SundaySwirl let’s you choose the indulgent snack, too (yes, it involves cookies!) and it’s still healthy (for the most part).


½ of a frozen banana

1 cup of vanilla or plain yogurt

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 cup of milk

5 chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreo or generic brand)

Whipped cream or whipped topping

Cookie crumbs (optional, for garnish)


  1. In a blender, combine the banana, yogurt and milk.
  2. Crush the cookies in a sealed, thick plastic baggie.
  3. Mix ¾ of the crushed cookies into the smoothie.
  4. Top with whipped cream or topping (optional), then sprinkle the remaining cookie crumbs on top.

Just because you’re a “big kid” now and expected to choose healthier options, does not mean you can’t indulge a little and you can still enjoy your cookies!
