Happy Labor Day! Hope you’ve been enjoying the long weekend. As promised, here is a super simple, super easy dessert using almost the same ingredients as the Honey Ginger Banana Ice Cream that I made a couple weeks back.
This time I made a milkshake! This milkshake is a much cleaner, healthier alternative to the mega-calorie dense traditional (delicious) cold treat. The recipe uses frozen bananas as the base (though the banana flavor is subtle when the rest of the ingredients are added in) , a touch of honey to sweeten, chocolate to flavor, and coconut milk (or any milk) to smooth and thin out. You could make chocolate ice cream the same way, just by adding less milk.This is so easy to make, another one of those whip-up-in-five-minutes-after-dinner kind of treats when you’re feeling in need of something sweet that isn’t so unhealthy. A great option for kiddos too since bananas offer great nutrition and they won’t be on a crazy sugar high after indulging.
Clean Eating Chocolate “Milk”Shake
makes one serving, increase ingredients according to number of servings desired
1 banana, frozen (for easiest results, freeze bananas in 1″ chunks, peeled)
2 teaspoons honey (more or less, to taste)
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk of choice, I like coconut milk (2 Tablespoons if making ice cream consistency)
Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high until combined and milk shake consistency is achieved. Easy as that!
