Dark Chocolate Black Cherry Oatmeal Cookie-wiches

Are whoopie pies cakes or cookies? I know the name says pies, but they do not resemble a pie at all. It is more like a cake-like cookie with yummy filling sandwiched between. But I suppose “cake-cookie sandwiches” isn’t as fun to say as “whoopie pies”. Twittering didn’t help either as people went either way. Some said they were both or neither, claiming to be in a category all their own. I’m going to submit this issue to “Unsolved Mysteries”.

I decided to stick to the name “cookie-wiches” for this creation because they ended up not quite looking like whoopie pies. Shun me if you dare, but these cake-like cookies were just begging to be sandwiched around some fluffy goodness. And there is even 0% Black Cherry Chobani Greek yogurt in there instead of cream cheese. Excuse me while I shake up some other baking ideologies.

Black Cherry Vanilla Almond Smoothie

This is one of my favorite smoothies. The black cherries are perfectly sweet and the almond matches up so well. Sometimes I pump up the almond a bit and use almond milk instead of regular milk. It almost tastes like dessert!

I loved these crazy straws growing up. I was so excited to find one! Although not the widest to allow for smoothie passage, it’s still fun to look at.


1 cup frozen pitted black cherries

1/2 banana

1/4 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt

1 Tbsp sliced almonds

3/4 cup milk or almond milk


  1. Place ingredients, in the order listed, into a rocket blender. Seal with the cross blade base and pulse until well combined.
  2. Enjoy!!
