The Cherub and I made the chocolate banana shake together- it comes from Pretend Soup by Mollie Katzen, but we increased the proportions and fiddled it a bit.
The original recipe:
1 cup of milk in the blender (nasty surprise, Mollie says it tastes like it’s made ice-cream even with lowfat milk. We used whole)
2 tablespoons sweetened cocoa
3 ice cubes-
Mix all in a blender.
We used two bananas, six ice cubes, and filled the blender about 3/4 of the way with whole milk, I didn’t measure the chocolate milk powder, which I had to buy special for the occasion, and I added two large spoon fulls of natural peanut butter.
Verdict: It’s probably better without chunky peanut butter and with more ice, but I liked it.
The FYG doesn’t like bananas, so she didn’t like it at all.
The FYB wished I’d left the peanut butter out, and says it would have been really good without them.
Nod gave his to the Cherub
Blynken says it’s good
The Cherub drank hers and Nods’ and would have taken anybody else’s.
You know what I think would have been really yummy? A couple spoonfuls of jam instead of peanut butter or chocolate- then it would have been a strawberry banana shake. Mmmmmm. We’ll try that another day.
