Superfood Boost: Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds.
Cookie Dough Smoothie
- ¼ cup raw pecans
- ¼ cup Medjool dates pitted, about 3–4 large dates
- 1 cup pear very ripe, chopped
- 2 tbsp lucuma powder
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1 ½ cups almond milk
- 2 tbsp cacao nibs
- 2 cups coconut ice see note
- sweetener to taste; optional
- Blend all ingredients together—except the cacao nibs and coconut ice—until creamy and smooth.
- Add the nibs and ice and blend until frosty. This leaves the nibs to serve as “chocolate chips” and add a crunchy kick!
- This smoothie is inherently dessert-like, so it is unlikely you will need to boost the sweetness—but taste the smoothie and add sweetener if desired.

Would this tasty shake... taste the same without the pecans? Any substitutes? No nuts allowed. 🙁 Thanks!
Leigh, if you can do seeds, I'd say that hemp seeds (2 to 3 T) might be a good substitute. Or 1/4 cup silken tofu. Hope that helps!
