Oatmeal Cookie Protein Shake
This shake is both delicious (naturally sweetened!) and filling (fiber-packed!). It can be easily customized to fit your nutritional needs/preferences and what you have on hand. This could serve as a meal replacement if you're looking for a quick breakfast on your commute to work, or if you're working from home and need to get back to your desk quickly after lunch. Hope you enjoy!
3 pitted Medjool dates (about 24g)
1 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 c. frozen riced cauliflower
1/4 c. old-fashioned oats
2 tbsp. powdered peanut butter (or 1.5 tbsp creamy peanut butter)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
1 scoop vanilla protein powder or collagen peptides (could also substitute 1/2 c. Greek yogurt)
Soak the dates in 1 cup of hot water for about 5 minutes to soften.
While dates are softening, add all other ingredients to the blender.
Remove dates from the water and chop them finely before adding to the blender. Reserve the water the dates were soaked in, in case you'd like to thin out the shake after blending.
Blend all ingredients together until smooth, adding water if you'd like it to be a bit thinner.
