Raw Cookie Dough Milkshake

Please be advised: this blog has a new title:

“Chocolate Milkshake Covered Katie”

And now, back to your regularly-scheduled recipes…


Yesterday, in the comments of the recipe for the Healthy Shamrock Shake, I brainstormed one way to make a cookie dough variation. One of my non-blogger friends saw the comment and asked if I’d make the shake for her for real. And that made me want one too…


Raw Cookie Dough Milkshake

Inspired by: Healthy Shamrock Shake.

  • 1 frozen large banana, as ripe as possible
  • sprinkle of cacao nibs or chocolate chips
  • handful raw oats (blend some in the shake, and save some for the top)
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice (For a rich ice cream shake, try canned coconut milk)
  • tiny pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • cookie dough of choice, or the following linked recipe: Raw Cookie Dough Bites

Reserving some of the chocolate chips and raw oats for garnish, blend together all other ingredients.


Want a Fudge Brownie milkhake instead?

Add cocoa powder and replace the cookie dough balls with the following: Raw Brownie Bites.

    Raw cookie dough is sometimes better then baked cookies. 😀 That milkshake looks better then the one from yesterday.

  2. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete says

    Growing up I ate raw cookie dough and I STILL eat raw cookie dough. I love any kind of recipe that includes something close to raw cookie dough — like Averie’s ball recipes. They taste like cookie dough (which is dangerous but so delicious).

    Have a great weekend Katie!

    When I was growing up?! I still eat raw cookie dough and sometimes I make cookies just to give me an excuse to nibble on some dough 😉 I actually like the dough better than the cookies themselves! My favorite raw cookie dough:

    I keep these in the freezer and have one for dessert every night. They’d be awesome in a milkshake!! I’m thinking about chopping them up and mixing them into some homemade vanilla coconut ice cream 🙂

    That first picture is the prettiest ever!
    Makes me want a cookie dough milkshake, even though it’s currently freezing over here!

    I don’t comment on your blog often(sorry!) but I just had to comment today and tell you your photos are looking so much better! They look amazing! I am so impressed. And the shake looks so good.. I’m going to try to resist my craving for one till after lunch 😀

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Thank you so much, Heidi! I’ really trying to pay more attention to the rule of thirds and finding light areas of my house… but most of what I eat doesn’t get photographed… because I don’t want to spend the time. LOL I just want to eat it! 😉
      Someday I should make a light box too.

      • Heidi says

        Well I can really tell! What you’ve been doing is working so keep it up! And yes I know what you mean. I’ve been trying to take food pictures lately because I really want to start a blog but most of the time I just want to eat it(or feed it to my hubby LOL) and can’t take the time. Your lighting looks great to me. I always have a problem with it, but maybe that’s just because it’s winter time and I’m in Canada, haha 😛

        • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

          Oh don’t wory; I have a ton of issues with lighting too! Now that it’s getting warmer, I take things outside. But like I said, it’s rare, because who wants to cart their food outside when all they really want to do is eat it?! 😉

    I guess I’m one of few who never ate raw cookie dough ;). I wouldn’t like the idea of eating raw flour and raw eggs. I preferred baked cookies 🙂
    This shake if def on my to-do-list!

  7. Cat says

    Of course I ate raw cookie dough – that’s why I always would designate myself “official bowl scraper” after all the cookies had been dropped onto the baking sheet. 😉

  8. Albizia says

    This one looks pretty darn good. No wonder your posts appear on Tastespotting more and more often 🙂 .

    I ate a lot of cookie dough while my mother wasn’t looking. Maybe I am crazy but sometimes the dough tastes better than the baked stuff.

  9. Carrie (Moves 'N Munchies) says

    NO WAY- you actually did it!!!!!! you are SO SO SO TALENTED GIRL.. i hope you know that!!!! this sounds YUM YUM YUM.. i might just add 5 cookie dough balls to mine 😀
    WOWZA fudge brownie? can this get any better?!?!? i THINK NOT.. you and your milkshakes BRING ALL DA BOYS TO DA YARD

  10. Brandi says

    Fantastic looking milkshake! I love cookie dough I ate I wouldn’t say lots, but quite a bit. Sadly never homemade cookie dough though.

    Luckily with vegan baking you can eat the cookie dough and no worries about that raw egg. In fact I ate a cookie dough cupcake a week ago it was fantastic!

  11. Mallory says

    I just made this, and it ROCKED MY SOX OFF! Luckily, I had everything in the house for the cookie dough babies, because I knew I needed to make it as soon as I saw your post!

  12. Claire @ Un Bello Aperitivo says

    Make the fudge one! It sounds amazing.

    I did eat raw cookie dough and never really thought anything about it until one day my friend’s mom freaked out because I was licking the spatula. Hey, I never got sick, haha. Now I eat raw RAW cookie dough balls.
