Fun Smoothie Topped with Frosted Circus Animal Cookies
Make any occasion special, when you sip on a fun circus party smoothie topped with pink and white frosted animal cookies.
Yes, iced circus cookies with rainbow colored sprinkles are enjoyable for kids and adults.
The smoothie is made with healthy banana slices, yogurt and milk, so it can be enjoyed anytime of the day.
The drink is delicious, but it is the circus cookie topping that makes it fun.
Make circus smoothies for an actual party, as a treat for the birthday boy or girl or when you want to turn an ordinary day into a celebration.
Optional Protein Powder Add-in
If you’d like to add a protein boost to the smoothie, there are many great options for protein powder.
As far as flavors go, I’d recommend either a vanilla protein powder or an unflavored one to go with this recipe.
Beyond that, you will want to choose one that has nutrition FAQs that will meet your dietary needs.
I typically choose an organic vegan protein powder with 20-25 g protein per serving, while the guys in the house prefer a powder with significantly more protein than that.
Some favorite brands are Orgain, Vega and Garden of Life.
What type of blender should I use?
I recommend that people invest in a good high-speed blender, so that you can keep it for years and use it often.
It will cost more up front, but shouldn’t need to be replaces often like poor quality ones do.
This recipe has frozen bananas in it, but they aren’t difficult to blend like ice cubes or harder frozen fruit.
A blender with less power should work for this smoothie, if that is what you have.
If you are just now looking to purchase a blender, I’d recommend investing in a better one that you will be able to use efficiently for more recipes.
