Peanut Butter & Banana Chocolate Milk

This recipe was inspired by a baby. Okay so not a baby but a pregnancy induced craving. Nichole, my friend, ya know my pregnant friend from this post. Well she has been craving ice cream, since like day one! She recently made my Pineapple Mango Smoothie and left me a facebook message saying “If I close my eyes it’s like I’m eating ice cream!”

And then the light bulb went off… and this recipe was born. {Get it… born? Ha ha!}

And even though this isn’t ice cream… it tastes close to it! It’s goood… dang good! But if you wanted it thicker I would lessen the milk and freeze the half of banana in pieces, and possibly add more ice.

Let’s get something straight… this isn’t a smoothie… it’s more of a frothy milk, packed with deliciousness which makes for a perfect breakfast for those on the go! Enjoy!!

Get the goods out.


Into your blender toss the ice cubes and vanilla…


Then the peanut butter and bananas.


Cocoa powder… *sniff* ahhh!


Lastly pour in the whole milk.


Firmly place the lid on the top of your blender, and let ‘er rip!


This chocolate milk isn’t overly sweet. I think the yogurt has enough sweetness for my taste. But feel free to add sugar or honey to sweeten it to your liking. I sprinkled mine with a little extra cocoa powder… and yes I got a cocoa powder stache. So what? I was alone… and there is no proof! Ha!

    I love your ingredient photo. The idea is great too, but since I can't eat PB right now, I'm not especially lovin' this post. 😉 (jealousy is a terrible thing)
