Continuing with my “things in a cup” meme…. Lol!

(Salad in a cup, Cereal in a cup)

So you know I’m pregnant and I’m really trying to control my cravings. I’ve seen various recipes for cookie dough that you could eat but they all seemed either really, really unhealthy or super weird. I mean, how exactly does a paste made with beans taste like cookie dough???? NO THANKS!

I knew I could come up with something better…. And boy did I! Real ingredients + healthy food = the unbelievable taste of a cookie dough milkshake! This one is just a tad different from my usually dump recipes and it might sound a little bit weird, but stay with me here…….

I’m so excited about this one!

The only thing that would make this any better is if someone made it for me. Man, my daughter has got it made! :)
