Healthy Orange Chocolate Shake

chocolateshake1



Here is just a quick recipe for you.   We have made a lot of tasty healthy smoothies for my 3-year-old.  You see he is earning LOTS of treats these days!  ( Potty Training) And it’s finally actually going really well 🙂

Here is one I made for him.  A healthy Orange-Chocolate Milkshake.  No, there is no sugar added.  And Yes,  It is made from frozen bananas.  I am becoming extremely predictable these days aren’t I?

I have added citrus to my frozen banana desserts two times recently, and since they both turned out well, I wanted to try it again.  Both, my Key Lime Pie Ice Cream and my Healthy Lemon Ice Cream turned out fantastic!  I think the secret is, to add as much zest as possible for added flavor. I love the taste of citrus in the winter.

  1. Yum… this looks great! I’ve never added orange zest to a smoothie – adding it to my list to try 🙂

  2. yum, but is there something you can use instead of banana? yogurt maybe? i really dislike banana.. 😛

    • You might want to try freezing yogurt in ice cube trays. You would also want to add a sweetening agent, like honey or maple syrup.
