Let's see... FutureBabby was doing acrobatics at about 3 a.m. last night. Right before I went to bed. And as I was reading to P. before she went to bed. FutureBabby is a night owl, I think, and likes to sleep in because the first movement I feel in the morning only comes after breakfast. What does FutureBabby want for breakfast? A chocolate milkshake. What does FutureBabby actually get for breakfast? Something like a chocolate shake, but healthier.
Here's my healthy chocolate shake recipe:
- 1 ripe banana, cut into chunks and frozen
- A few squirts of chocolate syrup
- 3 tsp. cocoa powder
- 3 tsp. ground flax
- 1/3 c. mild lettuce
- 1/4 c. smooth peanut butter
- A little of anything else you like (e.g. whey powder, oats, etc.)
- Soy milk
I've been drinking these healthy shakes - okay, healthyish - in place of breakfast a lot and being that the recipe is a bit on the carboriffic side, they make FutureBabby dance its little tushy off every time. Yum.
