Chocolate milk is no doubt one of my daughter's most requested beverages. She's loved it since she was a little kid, and now that she's entering her tween years, she'll still asking for it regularly. And I totally get it— chocolate milk is delicious!
I've been buying TruMoo for the past couple of years because it's ready-to-serve —there's no powder or syrup to mix— and it's a great source of protein without any additives like high fructose corn syrup or growth hormones. We both love the flavor, and sometimes when I'm craving something sweet I will pour myself a glass. TruMoo is a nutritious and delicious treat for adults and kids alike!
As the summer is coming to an end, my daughter and I have been spending extra time together as she prepares to go back to school. BTS shopping is never as fun as it sounds, and after long afternoons of trying on clothes and finding elusive items on the supply list (I'm looking at you erasable colored pens!), all we want to do is decompress at home and indulge in something chocolatey — it really helps with the back to school madness!
Since I already had TruMoo Chocolate on hand and vanilla ice cream, it was a no brainer to whip up a thick and delicious milkshake. On my daughter's request we added chocolate sandwich cookies. The result was a Double Chocolate Cookies N' Cream Milkshake that rivaled anything we could have ordered at a ice cream parlor or fast food chain. It was just the treat we needed, and I kind of loved our mother-daughter bonding time as we gathered the ingredients and blended our milkshakes together 😉
Double Chocolate Cookies N' Cream Milkshake Recipe
- 4 chocolate sandwich cookies
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup TruMoo Chocolate Milk
In a blender, pulse chocolate sandwich cookies for a few seconds until crushed. Add ice cream and Trumoo Chocolate. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
To lighten up this recipe by making it into a smoothie, you can substitute ice cubes for the ice cream and use low-fat cookies.
