The last smoothie I made, Lily, my four year old told me it tasted like leaves. HA! Kids have such honest observations, don't they? After that I asked myself, do all my smoothies need to have kale and spinach in them?! Does every smoothie we blend under this roof need to have
leaves greens in it? Certainly not! So today we gave the greens a rest and went for something different (for us) and a little more dessert-like, but still healthy in its own way. This is Williams-Sonoma's recipe and I'd like to give whoever came up with the name "monkey milk" a high five because that is pretty gosh darn adorable and clever. I mean, what kid wouldn't be stoked about drinking monkey milk? Enjoy!
Recipe (serves 4):
2 ripe bananas, broke into pieces
1 cup vanilla yogurt (I highly recommend The Greek Gods greek yogurt in the honey or honey-vanilla flavor)
1 cup milk
1 cup ice cubes
Combine bananas, yogurt, milk and ice cubes in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve with a straw!
*the original recipe calls for 2 tbs honey, but I have never added it in because the smoothie is plenty sweet with out it. Don't be afraid to add it in your smoothie if needs be.
