Today my boys bombarded me with “I want a milkshake!” and since we are trying to eat healthier no ice cream has been bought at my house recently.
Which doesn’t stop the nightly requests for it.
But today when it was requested I had a brilliant idea. Let’s make milkshakes that are good for them! I’ve learned with kids it’s all about the terminology. If I call it a milkshake, it’s a milkshake…. And they love it. …Even if they know what is in it. So we made three ingredient, healthy chocolate milkshakes. And they helped make them. And they knew exactly what I put in. And they still loved it!
I didn’t measure at the time because we were going off consistency and what they thought tasted good but here is an approximation of what we made.
Healthy “Chocolate Milkshake”
- 4-5 frozen banana’s
- 3 Tablespoons Cacao powder
- enough milk or nut milk for a vegan/dairy free version to get the milkshake consistency you want, this was about 1.5-2 cups in our case.
Add these ingredients to your blender. Blend thoroughly and Enjoy!
