The Choconut Banagurt: Eli's favorite smoothie

This combo has been doing it for Eli lately:

  • one cup milk
  • scoop plain yogurt
  • scoop chunky peanut butter
  • one banana
  • two ice cubes
  • squirt of chocolate syrup

I forgive the chocolate syrup because, well, I’m scarfing back the dark chocolate all day long, so I understand him his chocolate needs, but also because it’s a small, small part of an otherwise power-packed smoothie. Blend it all in a blender, drink. It’s very milkshakey and one of those things that makes kids think they’re getting dessert for breakfast.

    I have never regretted the not having of a banana in the house more than this afternoon when I read this. I want it for myself. Tonight Wylie ran to me after some time in the bathroom with daddy and said I BRUSHED MY TEETH ALL BY MYSELF! and then about 10 seconds later said CAN I HAVE A BROWNIE?

    Well, really, you need something to get the toothpaste taste out of your mouth, and the brownie is the perfect vehicle for such a venture.

    funny too, since he’s had a brownie ONCE in his life, about 2 months ago. clearly, rightly, it made an impression!
