Vegan Samoa Cookie Smoothie

Good morning! I have an easy, healthy mid-week recipe to share today that’s full of delicious flavors and no added sugar. Today also happens to be my birthday; what better excuse to make this Vegan Samoa Cookie Smoothie?

It seems every time I turn around I see a sign advertising or a group selling Girl Scout cookies. Over the weekend they were tabling outside a neighborhood coffee shop, and today a troop is visiting my office building to sell cookies. My absolute favorite Girl Scout cookie is the Samoa {or Caramel deLite, in some parts of the country}. Samoa cookies are full of chocolate and coconut goodness. I created a smoothie matching the same flavors with much healthier ingredients.

This is where I admit that I could eat an entire box Samoa Girl Scout cookies in one day, if given the chance. Instead of giving myself the inevitable sugar hangover by purchasing cookies at the office today, I created this smoothie with my favorite unsweetened coconut flakes, available at Trader Joe’s. I add coconut flakes to my yogurt bowl breakfast every day; I love the flavor and crunch.

This Vegan Samoa Cookie Smoothie is naturally sweetened with nature’s candy – Medjool dates. The smoothie also includes unsweetened cocoa powder {Ghirardelli is my favorite}, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, frozen banana slices, vanilla powder, and spinach for good measure.

This smoothie is also inspired by my recent trip to Arizona – the resort where we stayed had a juice and smoothie bar, with a Chocolate Banana Coconut Smoothie that was SO good I ordered it three days in a row.

On my birthday last year, I posted Dark Chocolate {Black Bean} Brownie Bites. I think an annual birthday chocolate post has been born. I hope you love this smoothie as much as I do!
