"cookie dough" blizzards


when i was growing up the official start of summer was marked by the opening of dairy queen- you could hear the buzz around town "only 5 more days until dairy queen opens, that means it is almost summer!", the owners would begin the count down until opening day on the marquis for all to see-the line on that first day would be nearly a mile long, everyone looking to get their ice cream fix after a cold & snowy new england winter. ask each person what their favorite first of the season treat is and you are sure to get a different answer from everyone- my dad; peanut buster parfait or a dilly bar, my mom the same, she loves the spanish peanuts that adorn the top of the buster- sometimes she would go with a twist cone, my sister a cone with the red dipped hard candy shell and my choice; almost always a blizzard- snickers, butterfinger or cookie dough!





 
since becoming a vegan and the dairy queen now opens in February (!?!?)  i have been on the look out for vegan friendly summer treats- i came across this recipe on oh she glows (great blog; if you have a chance to check it out do it!). by the way it just isn't right for dairy queen to open in the middle of the coldest month- it takes away from the "first cone of the summer season experience".
 
the cookie balls really do taste just like cookie dough- only better, and good for you! they come together really easy and the best part you don't have to turn on the stove or oven- a perfect treat for a hot summer day.


i had the luxury of having a 4 day weekend this past memorial day- on monday it was a sorcher. i had been saving this recipe since march and decided monday was the day to break it out for a trial run. i never know what justin's reaction will be when i try out new recipes. i think he was just happy 3 of the 9 frozen banana's were finally gone from the freezer. he had been asking me for months what was with all the banana's in the freezer- i need them to make blizzards of course; he was so confused.



it is amazing what frozen banana's or actually any banana can morph its self into- banana bread, frozen banana bites, it can be an egg if it wants to, smoothies, no bake cookies- banana's are great in my book, you should eat more banana's- especially when they are made into a cookie dough blizzard!

i won't tell anyone that you licked your cup clean,
your gonna want to after the very first bite

  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp + 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup ( you may need to add a bit more if it is too dry)

  • 2 tbsp of almond milk or any non-dairy milk (more if needed)
  • 2 tbsp cookie dough (from above recipe)
