A few weeks ago I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled! Unfortunately, my experience was not very positive and my recovery process has been a little slow.
So with that I'm still having trouble chewing hard crunchy foods and even though my wisdom teeth are gone my sweet tooth hasn't left! :) So what am I to do? Well one of my recommended meals was smoothies. So I decided to blend my cookies in my brand new Ninja ( I love it!), with other yummy ingredients like vegan vanilla ice cream! The result had me saying, "yummy in my tummy!" So I had to share it with you all!
• Add a few scoops of ice cream to cup before pouring in the finished smoothie. It gives it more of a thick shake like consistency. Soooo Good!
• I used Trader Joe's Chocolate Vanilla Creme cookies but Oreo cookies would work well too!
The recipe is super easy, quick, vegan, dairy free and delicious! Hope you enjoy it as much as my family did!
