|(oops, forgot the milk)|
Williams-Sonoma contacted me to be a part of their Smoothie Week with their first installment being "Not Your Typical Smoothie". I think this fits the bill. I am a dessert girl, so of course I had to make a dessert smoothie.
I used my Blentec to make this, but in all fairness it should work in any blender. If you don't have a blender you should check out Williams-Sonoma, they have a sale on blenders and free shipping going on right now.
The cookies crumble fairly easy and I had pre-chopped the nuts, so it all worked smoothly. As for the pie filling, my neighbor had given me an industrial sized can of blueberry pie filling that I ended up freezing because I hadn't used it all. Now, I had a good excuse to use it.
I left the frozen whipped topping for last and the milk. I added 1/4 cup because I like my smoothies thick, but you can add more if you like.
