Nutella Oatmeal Cookie Shake.
This is a life changing day.
It just so happens to be the very first day I’ve ever shared ANYTHING with nutella on this blog. Yes. Anything.
Don’t even know how I feel about it. It’s like I’ve joined the masses. Well… more than I have already. Cue basic photos of lattes and shoes in the snow.
See? I used to loathe nutella. It wasn’t my thang at ALL.
Then I got pregnant. And I ate pinkberry for dinner like 35 times while traveling for the book tour and I’d always get nutella on top (along with the milk chocolate crunch – totally worth the extra fifty cents) which convinced me to buy a large tub of nutella which led me to EAT a large tub of nutella.
Many nights, pinkberry was the most delicious dinner choice in the airport.
So. I was eating this nutella off a spoon, putting it on my pancakes, spreading it on toast and melting it on ice cream.
I finally got the hype.
Do they make nutella lattes? Because I’d probably be all over that.
Lies. I’d for SURE be all over that.
I almost always think that it’s a cop out to share a smoothie or shake recipe (unless it involves booze, of course), but I’ve been drinking this since December and abso-freaking-lutely LOVING it. First, I love your guts for allowing me to share these sort of embarrassingly simple recipes with you while I get my act together. Second, this has been part of my omg-I’m-feeding-a-human-and-must-eat-oats phase so it’s made many a regular appearance in my kitchen. I want to make sure if I’m sharing a ridiculously easy “hey-that’s-not-REALLY-a-recipe” recipe, that it’s insanely delicious.
Plus, when I can eat nothing else but simple things to grab on the go, throwing a bunch of junk in a blender totally works. This is my real life normal at the moment.
Plus plus, did you know that some babies are sort of obsessed with the sound of a blender? Yeah, that’s a thing.
Plus plus plus, It tastes like a legit oatmeal nutella chocolate chip cookie. Truth.
No judgement if you accidentally on purpose drop a cookie in the blender.
