Choco-Monkey

Makes approximately three 8-ounce servings

1 banana

1 cup milk*

6 oz. vanilla yogurt*

2 cups ice

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla

extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 ½ tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons peanut butter

Peel and slice the banana. Add the sliced banana, milk, yogurt, ice, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, honey and peanut butter into the blender and mix thoroughly.

A note for little helpers: Even the littlest kitchen helpers can assist in peeling and slicing the banana. They can easily cut up the banana by using a child’s safety knife or a plastic butter knife.

A note about peanut butter: Use creamy peanut butter, not crunchy peanut butter, when making this recipe. I personally use a natural or organic brand of peanut butter.

  • Use low fat and/or organic dairy whenever possible for a healthier substitution.
