Banana Cocoa Milkshake
But no, this can't go on forever. The plug needs to be pulled. If the sun doesn't decide to take things in its own hands, I will. And I will, in all sincerity, whip up shakes and smoothies like this which will render in me the nutrition from the fruit as well and the satisfaction of chocolates. After I poured this drink into the glasses, I was tempted to reach out for a bottle of chocolate sauce, or even some chocolate and butterscotch chips to fancify my shake, but then this entire exercise would become pointless, no?
Cocoa powder: 3 tbsp
Milk: 400 ml
Honey: 1 tsp (or more depending on your sweetness preference)
Ice cubes: 5-6
1. Cut the bananas (with skin) right at the middle and keep them in the freezer for a good 4-5 hours. I kept them overnight. The next day, right before you get down to making the shake peel the bananas and plonk them inside your mixer. You may or may not slice them, everything will get mashed anyway.
2. Now add the milk, cocoa powder, ice cubes and honey into the mixer and give it a few good pulses till the ingredients are completely blended and smooth.
3. Pour into tall/medium/short glasses and drink away. 1 such glass is enough for a meal, trust me!
