Skinny Cookies and Cream Milkshakes

skinnycookiesandcreammilkshakes

You guys.  I am sick again.  What the heck?  I just got over a sinus cold and now I have another one.  Curses.  It is definitely not fun being pregnant and sick.  And you definitely can’t load up on the Nyquil!

I haven’t had much of an appetite at all the past couple of days and all that sounded good to me was a shake for my sore throat.  I loved this recipe for this skinny cookies and cream shake.  Let me tell you why.  The secret ingredient is a frozen banana.  It gave it such creamy texture and a sweet flavor.  The banana flavor wasn’t over powering at all.

Cookies and Cream shakes are hands down my favorite of all time.   This shake is only 4 simple ingredients and can be whipped up in a jiffy!  My kids couldn’t even tell that there was a banana inside and loved it just as much as I did!  And you can’t go wrong with a delicious cookies and cream shake with lower calories!  Win!

    Hi! This recipe looks DELISH, but I was wondering if you needed to put frozen bananas, and not just regular ones.

    Thanks,
