My almost-three-year old is chocolate-obsessed. The moment he had a bite of a brownie, it was game over. With the Summer heat blazing on us, I can be easily persuaded to get an ice cream cone (chocolate for Oliver, of course). But to save my husband and I from a growing waistline, and more importantly, a sugar-crazed toddler, I fool him (and us) with this healthy chocolate milkshake. It’s the perfect drink to have for Summer and it calls for a few ingredients you probably already have handy.
Healthy Chocolate Milkshake Recipe
1 cup low-fat milk
1 frozen banana, chopped
1 hefty tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
**Optional for added sweetness – 1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup.
Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
