Dairy Free Blueberry Cookie Butter Dream Smoothie (Vegan)

vegan-blueberry-cookie-butter-smoothie-recipe

January is all about Healthy Starts and smoothies are a great way to get a healthy and quick start to your day. This smoothie is not only filled with healthy fruit (that is easy to access all year round),  it also tastes like cookies.  And as an added bonus, it’s dairy free!

For the month of January, I am very excited to be hosting “Our Growing Edge,” a monthly link up for bloggers, with the theme “HEALTHY STARTS”

This smoothie recipe also makes a great dessert (kid tested and approved!)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

4 tsp molasses

2 tsp butter extract

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup  cultured coconut milk plain

1 cup vanilla almond milk

1 banana

2 cups frozen blueberries

Garnish: 1 Tblsp shaved or shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)

Directions

Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth, then sprinkle on coconut to garnish.

Note: I buy “So Delicious” brand cultured coconut milk – it’s available at most grocery stores (near the almond milk). It makes a great dairy free yogurt substitute!

**If you prefer to use dairy, you can use greek yogurt and add 1/2 tsp of coconut extract

Total time: 5 minutes

About Food Meanderings

I’m Terri, a contest winning competitive home cook and baker and hobby cake decorator. I’m inspired by and enjoy the challenge of developing recipes for cooking competitions because I really have to push myself to be creative. I love all things food and spend much of my spare time thinking about food, cooking food, taking photos of food, writing about food, reading about food, making art with food and sharing my love of food. I also tend to ramble on about food. That’s why I started this blog.
