It’s Girl Scout cookie time! If you haven’t been asked by a dozen girls to buy cookies, watch out they will be asking you soon! I use to be a Girl Scout and really can’t resist some of those delicious cookies! I would say I have two favorites but then I think of others. There are the Thin Mints, Samoas, oh and then the chocolate peanut butter Tagalongs. There also use to be something about those shortbread cookies but then they changed them. We all have our favorites. One of my good friends loves Samoas and I even made her a cake one year that was a jumbo Samoas cake and it was delicious to say the least, not healthy but oh so delicious!! There is a healthier way to get your fix though with this Samoas Cookie Protein Shake! Yep so good and guilt free! So go ahead and have a cookie… protein shake!

What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?

While I do receive some Vega products from time to time, which I used as an option in this recipe, I do purchase much of it on my own. It has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging. Even though most Vega products used are purchased by myself I do add this disclaimer. I do not make any money off any Vega sales or posts. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.

    next time the girl scouts come to my door, i will tell them I have somoas already and then go make this. That counts, right?
