Oreo Smoothie (for big and little kids)

Last updated on March 23rd, 2020 at 05:24 pm

Could an Oreo Smoothie be as good as a milkshake? Absolutely! This Oreo Smoothie for Big and Small Kids is a welcome addition to our smoothie rotation. OK, so it doesn’t have any greens or purplish bits to speak of but, if you look at an Oreo in a certain light there is the tiniest hint of maroon. Good enough for me, let’s do it.

 

Creamy and smooth like any good milkshake, this Almost Healthy Oreo Smoothie is made with cashews, banana, cacao, almond milk and Oreos.

This Oreo Smoothie tickles the kid in me. I have seen and pined for the many Oreo milkshake recipes I’ve seen strewn across the InterWeb with wanton abandon and now I add my own.

CAN AN OREO SMOOTHIE BE HEALTHY?

Well, it’s all relative isn’t it? Is it healthier than an Oreo milkshake made with ice-cream? Sure.

This Oreo smoothie is made with:

 

  • almond milk,
  • coconut water,
  • frozen banana
  • and cashew butter for creaminess.

But, it also has Oreo cookies in it. So, yes it’s healthier than a milkshake. But no, it’s not a super healthy smoothie. 

This Oreo Smoothie concoction is a chocolate, vanilla cream delight without the cream. How good is that?

My inner child is salivating again, pardon me.

UPDATE : OREOS MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF DAIRY MILK

“Oreos have milk as cross-contact and therefore are not suitable for vegans.” (from Oreo
FAQs
).

So what does this mean? Well, Oreos are produced in a factory that produces non-vegan products so you may get small trace of dairy milk in your cookie. It’s up to you to decide what you are OK with a plant-based eater. 

Also, it’s worth noting that Oreos are made with palm oil. 

FAQS

Can I swap the dairy-free milk? 

Sure! You can use almond, cashew, oat or soy. I wouldn’t advise coconut milk as the flavour will overpower the other awesome flavours in your smoothie. 

Could I make this with peanut butter? 

Awesome idea! Yes, it will taste a little like peanut butter but you’ll create a chocolate, oreo, peanut butter sensation. 

Do I need to use coconut water?

Gosh no. If you don’t have any or simply want to save some buck stick to regular water.

Thick and chunky oreo milkshakes were my jam as a kid! This version looks just as good as the classic, but by far healthier! YUM!
