DIY Cookie Dough Smoothie Bowl

The best vegan cookie dough bowl awaits…

To make:

Cookie dough:

  1. Start by heat-treating your flour in either the microwave or oven.
  2. Using a mixer, mix your oil/butter and sugar together for 2-3 minutes, or until combined. Add the milk, vanilla extract and banana, and continue mixing. Slowly add in your flour and mix until just combined.
  3. Using a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips, then roll into cookie dough balls and set aside.
  4. If you have spare dough left over and you want to make cookies, preheat oven to 180°C (350°F), and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  5. Place the cookies on cookie sheet – making sure to leave space between them, as they expand in the oven – and bake for 10-20 minutes or until they’re a light golden brown. The cookies will continue to firm up as they cool, so if you want more of a softgooey cookie, remove them from the oven a little earlier. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool on the tray. Allow to cool completely before adding to smoothie bowl (or it’ll melt).

Smoothie base:

  1. Place all the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and thick. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, make sure to put the fresh ingredients in first at the bottom along with the liquid to help it blend easier.
  2. Pour the mix into your favourite jar or bowl, top with the cookie dough and other favourite toppings, and enjoy!
Make sure to heat-treat the flour beforehand, as most flours generally come straight from a grain that comes directly from a field, and is typically not treated to kill bacteria.
