Mood: Feeling Mischievous – The Monkey Business Smoothie

Sometimes I just want a smoothie and I don’t always want it to have green stuff in it.  I do love my green smoothies, I will say that… but today was just not one of those days.  Today I wanted something satisfying, remotely healthy but I was dying for chocolate so I thought I would be naughty and just combine it all together.

I invented the ‘Monkey Business Smoothie’ a while back for the Lion because he went through the phase where he wanted ‘treats’ all the time and sometimes a smoothie was the easiest thing to do.  This smoothie screams mischief because I see the delight in the lion’s face after he has pounded one of these cups of deliciousness.  I know it’s going to give him an extra dose of energy, it will super charge his curiosity and hilariousness all at the same time.

It uses simple ingredients I normally always have on hand.
