Oreo Chia Shake (dairy Free)



I mostly make smoothies in my Optimum G2.1 blender, but occasionally I make shakes too. This is one I make as a treat for Cooper. It's made with Oreos so it's not the healthiest recipe, but I balance that out by adding lots of seeds, cacao powder and baobab powder.

I made this shake with almond milk, but you could make it with your favourite milk, either dairy or dairy free, it's your choice. You could even add a scoop of ice cream for a spot of luxury.

It's so quick to whip up a shake and there are so many flavour options. Here are a few ideas:

  • apple pie shake - apples, apple juice, milk, cinnamon, ginger, chia seeds and ice
  • chocolate orange shake - orange juice, orange peel, milk, cacao powder (or cocoa), baobab powder and ice
  • peach melba shake  - peaches, raspberries, milk, vanilla extract, flax seeds and ice
  • strawberry shortcake shake - strawberries, a finger of shortbread, milk, vanilla extract, sesame seeds and ice
    • note: if you don't have a power blender like mine, skip the ice. It will just burn out your blender's motor.

  1. I tried Oreos for the first time in January (during Veganuary - I figured if Oreos are vegan then it would be rude not to give them a go!) and now I can't stop buying them. Definitely making this smoothie!

  3. I'm not really an Oreo person - although everyone else in my family is. I reckon I'd be very popular if I made them this one. I think that the apple pie shake is more my kind of thing.
