Snickerdoodle Smoothie - www.tasty-yummies.com - @tastyyummies

I am not above having cookies for breakfast, I may have done that a time or two.  But, generally I prefer smoothies in the mornings. They are so quick to put together and the variations on flavors and add-ins are really endless. So, why not combine the two and make a smoothie inspired by a cookie? This Snickerdoodle Smoothie is everything!

Up the street from my house is a smoothie/juice shop that is pretty amazing and so convenient. Meg and I love taking walks there to grab a couple smoothies and to catch up since we saw each other last. Most of the time, I have instant guilt when I spend $7 – $10 on a smoothie that I could easily make myself at home, but it’s a great convenience for when I don’t have the desire to or when I want something a little different.

In early February the smoothie shop featured a Snickerdoodle Smoothie that I had to try and I instantly both fell in love and also realized that I should be making something similar at home. My version is made with different ingredients, but that same flavor is there. Theirs included Maca which I can’t seem to consume at all and I think they may have also added hemp seeds to it, I honestly can’t recall what was in there. I decided to simplify it to what I had on hand and what I like best. I am just gonna go ahead and say it, mine is way better! There!

To me, the best part of this smoothie is the flavor and texture from the rolled oats, not something I usually put in my smoothies (since I prefer to limit my grains whenever possible) but a really nice addition. The oats really brings the cookie flavor to life, the texture makes it different from other smoothies and it ends up being a bit more substantial.

Of course the spices are what really bring the Snickerdoodle flavor to life. I put a lot of cinnamon in this smoothie, both for the flavor and all of the amazing benefits.

Snickerdoodle Smoothie - Gluten-free and Vegan

[print_this]Snickerdoodle Smoothie – Gluten-free, Vegan + Refined Sugar-free
serves 1

  • 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk – I went with 1 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana*
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats**
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 medjool date, pit removed
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, optional
  • pinch of sea salt

Add all of the ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately. Top with ground cinnamon and/or nutmeg, if you wish.

*If you can’t have banana, leave it out and add another date or two.

** If you want to skip the oats, you substitute unsweetened shredded coconut or some raw nuts, like almond or pecans [/print_this]

  4. I saw this on Instagram and had to come check it out. I sometimes eat cookies or even pie or cake for breakfast, but smoothies are my favorite way to start the day. Love this creative recipe that combines both worlds!

    Woah Beth! You’re totally speaking my smoothie language! Love the addition of oats. If you can have eggs for dinner, why can’t you have cookies for breakfast. Right?

    This sounds sooo yummy! I just found your blog this weekend while looking for gluten free recipes for my family. I fear one of my daughters might have a gluten intolerance and I wanted to see if her moods improve without gluten.

    You have created such a wonderful space here. It’s truly a great resource! I feel so inspired.

  13. […] Snickerdoodle Smoothie via Tasty Yummies.  I left out the coconut.  […]

  14. Carrie says:

    I just made this! I didn’t have any GF oats on hand so I used some coconut flour and almond flour to try and thicken it up… it’s a little thin but it tastes wonderful! Thanks!

  15. Jenni says:

    Sooooo scrummy… Loved it!

  16. Laura Barna says:

    Made this for breakfast today and YUM! I used half a fresh banana and just added a handful of ice to make it colder. Also, since I’m out of almond butter I used sunflower seed butter. Was still delicious. Will be adding this to my morning rotation!!

  17. Michelle says:

    I just tried this and swapped the shredded coconut out for some coconut kefir I had made and what a beautiful breakfast :), thanks for sharing

  18. kirsten says:

    Delicious! I had to omit the banana because I’m allergic to raw banana, so I subbed about 6 ice cubes and three extra dates. I may actually do less dates next time because it was very sweet. Also used peanut butter instead of almond butter because that’s what I had on hand. Thanks for a great recipe!
