healthy dessert, gluten free, high protein, sugar free, vegan
I have made four batches of my Homemade Oreos in the last two months.  They are just too good and I seem to go through them a little faster than any normal person would…  kind of like how I used to fly through a package of real Oreos when I used to eat sugar like it was my job.  With all these healthy Oreos lying around, I’ve gotten creative with how to use them (cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream might be involved, and cookies too…)
My all time favorite Oreo recipe has got to be this healthy Oreo Milkshake.  It reminds me of those Oreo Blizzards from DQ!  It’s thick, sweet and oh so satisfying for the sweet tooth  :)

Oreo Milkshake

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 3 Homemade Oreos, broken up (do not use storebought!)
  • 3 packets Truvia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Brown Rice Protein Powder (I used SunWarrior; or protein powder of choice)
  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or "milk" of choice)
  • A few Ice Cubes (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until the texture you like (I like mine a tad bit chunky)
  2. Drink!

Notes

This recipe is: sugar free, high fiber, high protein, gluten free, vegan!

I love this nutrition label, almost as much as I love the Oreo Milkshake itself!  You can’t go wrong with 6g of filling fiber, 22g of satiating protein and only 2g of sugar.  So much better than DQ’s Oreo Blizzard, where the mini size has 380 calories, 14g of fat (7g of unhealthy saturated) and 42g of sugar (that’s almost 1/4 cup!!!)

    Had a packet of oreos earlier. The craving was terrible! If only I’d had some of yours on hand…

    Funny you should post this, I’ve dreaming of making some kind of dessert with oreos lately. I might just try and make your oreo recipe because I am seriously considering cutting out, or at least drastically reducing my sugar intake. I know it’s far too high, even though I consider myself to eat healthily enough. I’m just listening to a podcast on sugar and candida right now as part of the Hay House Summit (totally recommend that!) and it’s only reaffirming that idea.

    Thanks for posting this recipe! :)

    I’m so glad I posted this recipe today then! Oreos are really fun to make at home and it definitely pays off in the end :)
    I read a little bit of this book called “Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual” a looong time ago, and I really liked what the author said about junk food: If you’re going to indulge in something, make it yourself! I think his example was French Fries? So instead of going to McDonald’s to get it make it at home from scratch. This will make the number of your indulgences drop dramatically, and maybe you’ll end up just getting rid of the junk food. That’s my rule with sugar… if I’m going to eat it, I’m gonna make it (like my all-time-loves Pop Tarts and Snickers)
    But I totally know what it’s like, after my first exam in college I ate a whole tube of Oreos… what a bad sleep I had that night… ;)

    I have Sun Warrior’s Vanilla Protein Power, but I lost the scooper! About how many tablespoons is one scoop?

    Margret- I hate those itty bitty scoopers! One scoop is about 3 tablespoons :)

    The cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream sounded so good that I really can’t wait for you to post the recipe ;-). And this milkshake omg I’m not the biggest fan of milkshakes but you sold me with this one, I love it!!

    Oh gosh I used to LIVE for those DQ Oreo Blizzards! This milkshake isn’t tooth-achingly sweet like the DQ version and is drinkable rather than scoopable, maybe you will like this version better :)

    I wish it was prepared with ice, moreover it looks yummy. :)
