Single-Serve Chocolate Banana Shake

>> Wednesday, June 3, 2015

We've been going crazy with ice cream and frozen yogurt places over the last several weeks. Or maybe months. I can’t remember. But once the weather got nice, the question we’ve found ourselves asking each night is: “Want to get ice cream!?”

The answer is always “YES!!!"

Well, I don’t know about you -- but for us, it gets expensive. It’s almost $10 for us to each get something small (WHAT!). And all that ice cream probably isn’t the best to eat on the daily. So, I’ve started making this simple banana “milk”shake at home to curb my cravings. It’s a great substitute for the real thing. Of course, you can always make Ultimate Banana Ice Cream or even Chocolate Covered Banana Bites if you’re in for a frozen treat.

They’re all delicious.


Blend together until smooth:
  • 1 heaping cup frozen banana slices
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 heaping tablespoonful cocoa powder
  • Maple syrup to sweeten (optional)
Speaking of snacking, I’ve gotten back in the habit of doing most of my weekly shopping at Aldi. It leaves me questioning why I ever switched stores. Oh, that’s right -- I got completely sucked back to Wegmans. And really, Wegmans has some good prices on family pack stuff like eggs and bread. So, I’ve decided I’ll shop both stores.

Anyway, here’s my latest haul for $70. 

Including two cases of La Croix! I know it’s all the rage, but honestly -- my favorite is still Polar. It keeps its carbonation longer. But you can’t deny all the flavors of Croix are enticing. Overall, I got a bunch of stuff, but I didn’t make a list this week, so it was kind of crazy and meals have been annoying to put together. What I have always loved about Aldi is that when I fill my cart to just about full, I know it’ll still come in well under $100. Score.

One of my other new favorites is packaged popcorn. I feel like it’s the epitome of laziness to not even pop my popcorn, but I love having a handful to grab between meals versus other high-calorie stuff. This tastes just like Boom Chicka Pop.

Tomorrow I’ll be back with an outdoor craft project you can do with your kids!
