Healthier Chocolate Milkshake

It seems like I am on a never-ending quest for healhy snacks. Not just healthy, but also delicious--I want them to be more enticing than the less-healthy snacks I crave. And kid-approved, too. Oh, and let's not forget frugal...keeping enough snacks to satisfy all my hungry mouths during the summer can amount to a nice chunk of change.


Yes, such a snack exists.


I present to you...healthy chocolate milkshakes.

Easy to make...

One frozen banana 

A dollop of peanut butter

A tsp cocoa powder

A cup of milk (regular, almond, coconut, whatever you prefer)

A cup of ice

Blend until creamy. Adjust the milk and/or ice to your desired consistency. Add a little stevia or a squeeze of honey if you want yours a little sweeter.

The overripe bananas that the kids won't touch are perfect for this. Slice them up, freeze them on a plate, and store them in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Frozen ripe bananas blend up nicely into an ice-cream-like consistency. 

Do you ever keep treats stashed away to savor during those victorious moments, when everyone is down for a nap or quietly occupied, and you have a few precious moments for yourself? This tastes decadent enough for one of those moments. 

This has broken my drive-through-Sonic-for-half-price-milkshakes-after-8pm habit.

And hey, when the kids come find you and see that you have a treat, this is one you won't mind sharing.
