White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Smoothie

There is something about the combination of sweet, creamy white chocolate and rich, buttery macadamia nuts that is irresistible. That can be a problem, because usually the pair is found side-by-side in a giant, chewy cookie. This White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Smoothie puts them together in a healthy Shakeology smoothie that tastes like one of those cookies, but drinks like a nutritious breakfast.

Together, Vanilla Shakeology and white chocolate extract recreate the flavor of white chocolate. Hold up… white chocolate extract? Yes, if you love the flavor of white chocolate, it’s worth it to find a bottle of white chocolate extract for your pantry! It’s available in many cake decorating stores or online. One tiny bottle can make plenty of smoothies, but you can also use it to add flavor to coffee, Greek yogurt, oatmeal, and substitute it in many recipes that call for vanilla extract.

To make this white chocolate macadamia nut smoothie taste even more like its namesake cookie, add a sprinkle of sea salt or Himalayan pink salt before blending. For an extra special touch, that adds a little bit of fresh-from-the oven taste, lightly toast the macadamia nuts. You can do this quickly by tossing them into a hot, dry pan, stir frequently until they start to turn golden brown, and stand over the pan vigilantly so they don’t burn!
