It’s Smoothie Tuesdays but you guys, I want a milkshake. Badly. An extra thick, seriously chocolate-y one. You know, the one that you almost need a spoon because using a straw is too hard and takes too much time. Yeah, that kind of shake.
Right now I’m kind of kicking myself for not having any frozen bananas because I want to make another. RIGHT NOW. That would make my day so much better from the very start. ‘Cause I mean, come on- milkshakes for breakfast? Oh yesssssss. When I was a kid I don’t think I ever did that (that would actually require a little work) but I did definitely do the “eat ice cream right out of the container for breakfast” . While it wouldn’t happen often, my family is kind of a “Dessert for breakfast? Great idea!” kind of group.
These days I kind of stray away from such habits, or in this case, make alterations. But hey, if I can make a simple, healthy version, then oh yes, it’s happening. And yes, it is happening. Right here, right now. Do it.
