I am totally obsessed with smoothies right now, and, being that this is my second cookie butter recipe post this week, I guess you could also say I’m cookie butter crazy.

Santa brought me a new blender for Christmas!  I had gotten into a daily smoothie breakfast-habit over the summer, but it had been seriously waning over the last few months.  My beautiful new kitchen appliance prompted a complete countertop makeover/rearrange, as well as a renewed passion for blending a whole day’s worth of fruits and vegetables into a cold, frothy, post-workout pick-me-up.

Usually, I follow a kind of more-is-better approach when it comes to smoothies.  I like to pack as many ingredients in there as I can.  Kale, frozen berries, Greek yogurt, whole oranges (with the peel; lots of vitamins!), oats, pineapple, coconut water, apples, carrots, ginger, bananas, pomegranate juice, you name it!  If it’s loaded with nutrition, it’s going in.

It may look like utter sludge, but I love it.

But after developing my recent granola recipe, I just couldn’t quit cookie butter.

A cookie butter smoothie had to happen.

If you’re going to make yourself a cookie butter smoothie, you want it to taste like cookie butter.  That is a no-brainer, right?  So this recipe maybe doesn’t get you quite ALL of the nutritious things of a green smoothie, but, it does boast nearly 12 grams of protein, along with lots of good fiber from the apples and oats, and potassium and B vitamins from the banana.  And the cinnamon is great for preventing blood sugar spikes.  Not to mention the whole thing also happens to be knock your sporty-socks off delish.

My mom was just giving me an education on chia seeds, turns out they are soooo super good for you.  I’ll be picking up a bag on my next grocery run, and I think they’d be fab in this recipe!
