Chocolate Banana Smoothie
2 frozen bananas*
1 1/2 cups milk
1 heaping tbsp cocoa
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 - 2 tsp honey (optional)
Put everything in blender and blend about 1 minute until smooth. Drink up!
This should make about 2 good servings, but if it is me, well, it is one. I will not lie. Sometimes the kid drinks it and enjoys it, but lately he has been shunning the color brown. Nevertheless it makes a great kid-friendly snack or even a quick breakfast since it provides calcium, fruit, and protein! I am including this simple recipe in both The Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap and in the Healthy Kids Meals roundup.
*I like to peel ripe bananas and cut them on half, lay them on a cookie sheet, and freeze them. I then stick them in a plastic bag (I mean glass container...) and take them out as I need them. Sometimes I cut them into smaller chunks to add to fruit smoothies. This is great to do with those bags of ripe bananas that many stores will mark down for super cheap. I always love these!
