To make this decadent smoothie, we blended rich Chocolate Shakeology with caramel extract and toasted coconut flakes. If you can’t find caramel extract in your local grocery store, look for it online or substitute it with butter rum extract.

Toasting the coconut brings out its buttery flavor and adds a nuttiness that makes this shake taste so much like a cookie. It’s worth the added step! To toast coconut flakes, heat a small pan over medium heat. Add coconut and stir constantly for 1–2 minutes until the edges of the coconut turn golden brown. Remove the pan immediately and let cool. If you have extra, store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a month.
