Edible cookie dough is all the rage right now. Rich and sugary, this sweet treat is often filled with unhealthy ingredients and calories. But at Nutrisystem, we find ways for you to enjoy eating your favorite foods, all while still losing weight. So naturally, we’ve created a healthier version of edible cookie dough for you to enjoy on your weight loss journey without completely derailing your healthy diet.
Let us introduce you to Monster Protein Cookie Dough. This protein-packed dessert has the consistency and deliciousness of edible cookie dough, but a few simple ingredient swaps make this a guilt-free treat. With the addition of our delicious Vanilla FreshStart Shake ™ mix, this Monster Protein Cookie Dough is certain to become your go-to for satisfying your sweet tooth the healthy way.
Grab your food processor (or blender) and combine chickpeas, nut butter, FreshStart Shake, vanilla and applesauce. Continue to process until the mixture has formed a smooth and creamy dough consistency. Stir in toppings (we like dried unsweetened cranberries, seeds and chocolate chips!) and dig in. If you want to let the dough harden slightly, pop it in the fridge for about 20 minutes and enjoy.
