Cool, creamy, and ridiculously comforting! This Salted Caramel Cookie Dough Smoothie tastes indulgent but is made with healthy ingredients like dates and oats!
This smoothie is made with dates. I apologize if you came here expecting actual caramel, but I can promise you that one sip of this healthier version will have you singing a different tune. It’s de-freaking-licious. The salt is, of course, optional, but highly recommended since it really helps bring out the sweetness of the dates.
As for the cookie dough part of the equation — again, it’s not actual cookie dough — but it is incredibly doughy thanks to the addition of raw oats. It’s also incredibly thick, creamy, and comforting. And if you’ve never tried adding oats to your smoothies, you need to change that stat because it will change.your.life. And why not start with a Salted Caramel Cookie Dough Smoothie?
