    *Runs out the door to purchases macadamia nuts*
    Oh my…sounds like those white chocolate macadamia nut cookies I used to be addicted to. Oooohhh…some white chocolate extract in this would be FAB. AND…I happen to have some Sun Warrior that a friend gifted to me from her stash. (We started a ‘cleanse’ 3 weeks ago…I failed miserably, lol.) My hormones detest maca, so I’d have to leave that out.
    BTW…I am laughing about Matt’s response to your food. It must be a man thing. Mine does the same. He pretty much likes everything I make, but it’s ‘next time make some lemon cake’….or ‘can’t you make the chocolate cake the way you did last time?’ Even though he’s had the lemon cake and Hershey’s chocolate cake a BAZILLION times. Lemon and chocolate. He isn’t into berries and ‘frills’. Oh, well.
    I am going to try a chai vanilla protein smoothie today (‘brewed’ a vanilla chai tea bag in my almond milk overnight), and tomorrow I shall have a sugar cookie protein smoothie. xx

    I can’t wait to buy some macadamia nuts so I can make this!! It sounds truly divine!

    Sugar cookie SHAKE?! Yummeee!!! I’m sure Matt loved it. How is that you didn’t make one for yourself?! I’ll be trying this Amber!

  5. Bobbie {the vegan crew}

    Love this! It’s so simple. And the wheels are turning now, thinking about what other cookies can be turned into nutritious smoothies 🙂

    1. Bobbie {the vegan crew}

      er, make that shakes.

  6. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    now this is a shake that I want to inhale! gorgeous pics, too!

    You DID tease him with the chocolate 😉 Vanilla is nice for a change, but I’m a chocoholic at heart! Shake looks yummy.

  8. Christy Stuckey @ Vegan2Raw

    Maybe you could make brownies? JK. It looks fantastic! Looking forward to trying it. 🙂

    Ha ha! Matt’s funny! But how awesome that he came up with this idea! I’d be equally proud if Paul came up with an original idea for something he wanted me to make him. Actually, I’d be proud if Paul would ask me to make him anything. His go-to snack is chips and pretzels (not so healthy).

    Hi Amber,

    Okay, this is karazy. Your fiancé sounds just like my husband. Seriously! Maybe they are long lost brothers. That is so funny. 🙂

    This shake sounds amazing. I love it, and I love that you offer so many variations. You rock lady.

    Yuuuum! I never thought to throw in some cocoa nibs! I can’t wait to make this after i’m done with my juice cleanse! (BTW, i’m on day 7 and i’m 5lbs down too 🙂 Do you happen to know by chance if too much protein (such as the powdered kind we put in protein shakes) can cause weight gain? I was drinking a protein shake every evening as my dinner right after my workout and then next thing I knew the following week I had put on 2lbs like that! I was shocked! I had been working out and eating great but I had just introduced protein shakes into my diet as my nightly dinner. If you have any insight please share 😀

  12. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    YUM! And finally something to use that bag of macadamias in my pantry for.

  13. Bitt

    Funny someone else’s husband loves chocolate as much as mine. The snickerdoodke variation sounds best to me.

  14. Hannah

    And here’s just another reason why you and Matt make such a perfect team/couple/MAGICPAIRING. xo

    1. Matt

      Agreed, Hannah. And you’ll get to experience a bit of it when you visit. 😉

      1. Hannah

        ZOMG I can’t wait!

  15. kate

    I love macadamia nuts but never thought to leave them in the smoothie this looks fabulous!

  16. Kelly @ Leafy Not Beefy

    Oh yum! That sounds so delicious! The oreo versions esp (Oreo Blizzards and Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough Blizzards used to be my favorite treat)

  17. Cintia

    Super delicious, Amber! We had it this evening and loved it. I added some cocoa nibs at the end and just pulsed to add some crunchiness. Thank you!

  18. hihorosie

    Yummers lady! My kind of smoothie!

  19. debby sunshine@veganamericanprincess.com

    Looks yummy!! I like the different variations of the drink. Which is your favorite?

  20. di @ life of di.

    Oh my! These look soo good! I definitely will be making these soon 🙂

  21. Katherine Natalia

    That sounds absolutely gorgeous. I can’t believe I’ve never used macadamia nuts in any of my smoothies, that will have to change. Many thanks for a great recipe.

  22. hollyeatsinfrance

    Wow, so easy and simple ingredients! And I love all the variations.

  23. Vanessa Harrington

    Yum! Just made this and it was awesome. I used cashews instead of macadamia. Very filling, and fun to try a non-green shake!

  24. Sandy

    Excellent sounding recipe! I have added it to my blog: Gluten Free Vegan Living. And of course, I gave you credit: http://glutenfreeveganliving.com/vegan-sugar-cookie-shake/

    The low fat version is pretty much my standard post-long run smoothie, using Vega Sport Vanilla, but I never thought to try adding cinnamon or cacao nibs…sounds awesome!

  26. Sue Barbieri

    The Vega sport powders look good but I just used the Garden of Life Brand (USDA Organic) Vanilla Spiced Chai (was on sake + coupon at whole foods) and make the original recipe first-it was ok but when I added the cocoa nibs..Whoa yeah..Just drank it straight from my Vitamix.

  27. Debbie Lykins

    Amber, this made me think of something I saw on Iron Chef once. Of course it wasn’t anywhere near vegan but I’d like to hear your thoughts on how “liquid shortbread” is made??? Cat Cora used that in some concoction on that show once and I nearly died when I heard those two words. If you can figure it out and share, I may leave my husband for you.

  28. Sonja

    Is it possible to use walnuts for substitute instead of macadamia nuts? I want to make this delicious shake but I dislike coconut butter and although I love cashews, we don’t have any at the moment. 😛

  29. Krista

    What Sunwarrior product do get – the warrior blend or the classic protein?

    1. Chef Amber Shea

      I personally prefer the Warrior Blend, but both are good. 🙂
