With summer being at its peak, I am sure we can do with lots of liquids in different forms. Smoothies come to rescue by being more creamy and rich. And if you want to use up any fruit, this is the best choice. I do this regularly with banana and it turns out great. When I decided on Summer Coolers, I thought I should make at least one smoothie and nothing like a chocolate added to it.
I finally settled down with Banana Chocolate Smoothie. This hardly takes time and suits best for breakfast if you are not conscious about including banana in your diet. But imagine my surprise when the kids refused to have this. They simply love Chocolate milkshake, which is an everyday affair. They love banana but they said they won't have because banana is added to chocolate. I couldn't understand the logic. I was thinking because they like both, putting them together should excite them. But the opposite happened.
Because they refused to drink, hubby dear and I had it for our breakfast and it was really very delicious. When I think my kids will like something, they surprise me by not even touching it. Maybe I haven't done a good PR job..:)
