I’ve been playing around with smoothies lately.  They seem like they should be so easy to make, but I am super picky about how they turn out.  I’m learning the ins and outs of getting the perfect texture and taste. In the summer I have a lot of over ripe bananas because they turn so quickly in the warm weather.  I peel them first and then freeze them and use as needed for smoothies.

This one is a favorite of the kids.  They think they’re chocolate shakes.  Freeze any leftovers in a Popsicle tray and have homemade healthy frozen treats!

  • 1 overly ripe banana
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½-1 cup milk

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend!
  2. Freeze leftovers for a tasty ice cream treat.
