The other day I was craving something sweet. I make it a habit not to keep sweets in the house because I may, perhaps, have a problem with self control at times...maybe. But as I spied a couple of bananas on the table I started planning what I could make with them. What I came up with was SO delicious. Here's my recipe:
Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter "Milkshake"
2 ripe bananas (or 3 if you want it more banana-y)
2 cups of milk
1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder
2 heaping tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 squirts of honey (I'm estimating about 2-3 tablespoons?)
4 handfuls of ice (you could omit this if you used frozen bananas)
Place bananas and milk in a blender and blend until smooth. Then add remaining ingredients and blend. Makes about 4 cups.
I may or may not have had this for dinner one night. I don't feel so guilty about it though considering it contains fruit, protein, dairy, and no sugar. At least that is what I tell myself! :)
We will definitely be making these regularly to beat this insane heat wave that is going on!
