Skinny Oreo Cookies and Cream Milkshake


Get out the blender…Why bother to dunk your Oreo cookies in cold milk?  Here the cookies are, in a sense, “pre-dunked.” Each dreamy sip provides a flavorful proportion of Oreo cookie and vanilla flavors and the shake gets extra body from the ground-up cookies.  It’s skinny by using 1% reduced-fat milk, reduced-fat Oreo cookies and a little sugar substitute.  One serving has 137 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 4 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.  I’m comparing my skinny shake to Baskin-Robbins Oreo Cookies and Cream Shake and theirs has an astounding 990 calories and 46 grams of fat!!!  I hope you’ll give mine a whirl…Here’s to guilt-free skinny sipping!
