Clearly, blogging has gotten away from me again. But with finishing photography for another author’s cookbook right after finishing my own, then participating in Life is Beautiful, things were VERY overwhelming for a bit. Luckily, it’s simmered down and I can make more fun new recipes for y’all!

Rockville, Utah - Just outside of Zion National Park

Plus, I finally camped for the first time in almost two years, out in Southern Utah and wanted to share some pics here. It was so beautiful, and our campsite was just outside of Zion National Park, where we hope to actually go in next time. (lol!) If you ever camp in the Southwest US, I’d love to hear about your favorite camping sites!

Also, we are just under 3 months out from Vegan Yack Attack’s Plant-Based Meal Prep being released into the world!! So, I’ll be sharing a preview recipe with SUPER soon. Meanwhile, you can pre-order it on any of the links on my Cookbooks page.

Back to the Halloween cookie shake! While I don’t order shakes often, Corey LOVES them. And because of a craving of his the other day, I ended up throwing together a pretty awesome shake using up stuff in the freezer. With this recipe I wanted to be a bit more intentional. So, I went with a base of banana, pumpkin, coconut milk, and of course, cookies.

Ingredients

Shake Base

  • 2 1/2 cups (387 g) peeled, chopped, frozen banana about 3 bananas-worth
  • 1 cup (225 ml) full-fat coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup (180 g) pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 (78 g) vegan chocolate cream cookie sandwiches chopped

Toppings

  • Non-dairy chocolate syrup or make your own chocolate sauce (type "chocolate drizzle" in my search bar)
  • Non-dairy whipped cream
  • Ground turmeric for color optional

Instructions

  • Place frozen banana chunks into a food processor equipped with an s-blade. Process for 1 minute or more, or until the mixture is smooth and thick. Add coconut milk, pumpkin puree, turmeric, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt to base, and puree again until incorporated.
  • Next, add cookies to the base, but pulse only a few times, or until the cookies pieces are smaller but not crumbs (or the mixture will become brown). Drizzle a little chocolate syrup or homemade sauce shake on the insides of two large glasses then divide shake mixture between them. Lastly, top with whipped cream, more chocolate, and light dusting of turmeric, plus a cookie if you have more! Serve immediately.
