Craving dessert, but don’t have time to bake cookies? Well, this shake is the next best thing. It tastes like oatmeal raisin cookies in a glass, but without the wait or the unhealthy ingredients. You won’t heat up the kitchen making this quick and delicious milkshake in your blender or Vitamix. You and the kids are sure to enjoy this yummy, sweet treat!
Yield: 2 cups
1 cup almond or cashew milk
¼ cup rolled oats (or a multi-grain rolled cereal*)
1 tablespoon butter, grass-fed
1 tablespoon raisins
½ tablespoon coconut palm sugar, organic
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup ice cubes (or more if you prefer it thicker)
Add all ingredients to a blender or Vitamix and mix starting on lowest variable setting. Increase speed quickly to 10, and then to high, blending until smooth and creamy.
To add a variety of grains to your diet, you can use a multi-grain cereal mix, such as Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Rolled Hot Cereal which contains: wheat, oats, rye, barley, triticale and flaxseed. (We used the 5 Grain in this recipe. It is shown in the above photograph.)
(This recipe was adapted from a Vitamix recipe shared by Michelle Miller Koles.)
