    I thought your oatmeal tab was my favorite, but this one is definitely taking the #1 spot!! 🙂 This is random, too, but I have been meaning to tell you this: The Thin Mint photo of the milkshake being poured into the glass? GORGEOUS!! Seriously, I’m in love with that photo, it is so pretty!! 🙂 Nice!!

    1. Aw thanks! LOL foodgawker.com didn’t like it, but it’s still one of my favorite photos too… basically because I like photos that show movement, but I always have a hard time getting it right. Someday, I wanna master the “poured maple syrup” look on top of pancakes. Those photos are always so pretty! I swear, I often don’t even notice the actual food anymore when looking at photos… I’m too preoccupied with the art of it!

    So I am a woman in love with your milkshakes–I tried a variation of the cake batter one this morning but tinkered with it a bit to up the protein. In search of something with a enough protein to hold me over for hours on end, I threw in between 4 and 6 ounces of silken tofu and made sure to blend it just a bit first to make sure it wasn’t chunky. It added some thickness to the shake (which is like a guilty please that you shouldn’t feel guilty about) and the other flavors basically covered the distinct tofu flavor. I found that it lasted me a good 5 hours, which was a big plus. I don’t know if it still counts a raw, but it sure was tasty!!

    1. Oh Sarah, I love love love your idea to add tofu!

      1. Sarah says:

        So I found that silken Tofu is definitely the key in order to blend it down to smooth–but it really adds volume and thickness….oh, and some much needed protein!!. Mmmmmmm

    Could you please make healthy pumpkin pie, oreo cheesecake, reese peanut butter cup milkshakes?

    1. I’m trying to figure out how to health-i-fy oreos for a cookies n cream shake! 🙂

      1. Nathalie says:

        Couldn’t you make a single serve chocolate cupcake on the bitter side, overcook it a little so it’s dry, and then crumble it into a shake? I dunno, perhaps there’s a flaw in my brilliant plan <..>

        1. Sounds pretty brilliant to me… but what about the cream filling? 😕 Maybe the milkshake, itself, would represent the cream…

          1. Nathalie says:

            Welllll…. I can’t be sure but I’m fairly certain Jell-o pudding mix (at least the fat free, sugar free instant kind we keep around the house, anyway) is at least vegetarian, if not vegan. I tried making your cream cheese mousse with the cheesecake flavor. It was awesome. Seems to stand to reason that if you throw some silken tofu and a serving of the vanilla pudding mix into the shake, it’d turn out pretty darn creamy.

            I should probably test that theory though. Oh the difficult life I lead, haha.

          2. Ooh that does sound good! I think you’re right; some jello pudding flavors are vegan!

            I know this post was from a while ago, and you may have thought about this since then, but . . . what about coconut butter as the cream filling? Maybe sweetened with just a little stevia?

          6. lol I actually just did that a few days ago! I made “raw” oreos, though. They don’t taste like oreos, but they’re really good anyway!

          7. Nat says:

            You could use chocolate sandwhich cookies from Atkins. DELICIOUS! 🙂

    Hello :3 I found your website yesterday, and I love it!
    I am dying to try your milkshakes, but I wonder, can you use frozen pear instead of a frozen banana, as I am a little bit more in love with pear?
    I must add, your recipes are also so fun to read, and you are very cute 😀

    1. Ooo that sounds like it’d be really good! If you try it, will you let me know what you think?

      And your sweet comment made me smile!!

    Hi Katie.I am in love with your site. I ran across it the other day and I must say your food is amazing! I am not vegetarian, but I am often mistaken for one. I am going to a University my last two years of college, and am not allowed any kitchen equipment except a fridge and microwave (no cooking allowed). So in short, your single servings and the ability to make foods so tasty and without equipment is a lifesaver.

    1. Awww I’m so glad you found me, Victoria! 🙂

    Can’t wait for your red velvet shake! I heard a way to make healthy red velvet cake is to include beets. Not sure how it would taste in a shake but just a thought 🙂

    Can’t wait to try these out!

    PS if you can find a way to make a super healthy vegan lemon meringue pie that would be so very special 🙂

    Cheers

    1. I’m thinking of doing a red velvet blondie… either with beet powder, or someone mentioned adzuki beans!

    You should add a recipe for an espresso shake: frozen banana, instant espresso powder, vanilla, and a little almond (or other dairy-free) milk. It’s just like the coffee ice-cream, but milkshake form. (-:

    1. Mmm that DOES sound good! I really need to remember to experiment with coffee flavors more often!

    Oh my! I just made this and I am dying right now it’s so good!! I didn’t have any cashew butter so I just threw a small handful of cashews into the blender instead :). I know it’s called cake batter but it tastes EXACTLY like my Mom’s old Banana Pudding recipe that I grew up with!! This is genius!! Thank you, Katie! I haven’t been able to touch my Mom’s banana pudding since I learned of my gastrointestinal disease and had to cut out all refined sugars about 6 years ago! Oh the nostalgic goodness!! 🙂 Thank you, thank you, Katie!

    These look great, except that I can’t have fruit (only berries). Do you think there is anything I could substitute for the banana?

    1. A good sub would be Thai coconut meat (the white triangle coconuts, not the brown stringy ones). Or you can play around with mango… or maybe even cherries in some of the recipes. Experiment! And let me know how your experiments go :).
