Light Oreo Smoothie

light oreo smoothie

My only rule for healthy recipes is it has to taste unhealthy like this light oreo smoothie does.  It is the best rule I could have ever came up with.  I don’t like to know I am on the “good foot” when consuming food.  I want to feel like I am indulging and enjoying life at all times.  If I feel like I am depriving myself, I immediately want to stop and eat a bowl of full fat ice cream.

It’s just the way I’m built.  I grew up in a home where fried chicken, baked macaroni and cheese, biscuits, cornbread and pound cakes reigned supreme.  We also ate healthy sorbets, baked chicken and fish and lots of vegetables but I never felt like these dishes weren’t as good (or sometimes better) than the dishes filled with more calories, fat and carbs.

Over the course of the next month, I will be sharing healthier dessert and baked items that all of you can enjoy without the guilt.  But they will remind you of all the unhealthy flavors we all have come to love.  I am starting with this light oreo smoothie because it is simple to make, filled with oreo chocolate flavor, and just the right way to get your healthy January started right!  So follow me along on a new path to healthy but don’t worry, there will be plenty of calorie laden recipes coming down the pipe this year as well.

      It absolutely seems pretty impossible but this is about as healthy as oreos can get right?

    Tee hee! I know what you mean. My dieting NEVER succeeded when I felt like I was depriving myself from all the food I wanted to eat. This year I’m keeping small portions. That’s the only way I could probably survive this healthy eating for me (not the food that’s “healthy” but overall eating…). I’m in for this oreo smoothies. Great idea and I know my kids will love it even more!

    Oreos are one of the best cookies every created and this is one of the best smoothies containing the best cookie ever! and the fact that it is healthy is such an added bonus! I’m loving the inclusion of Greek yogurt and can totally imagine the creaminess it will lend to the milkshake! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
