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.
Monkey Business Smoothie
- 3 Medjool dates, pits removed (this will add extra sweetness)
- 1 ripe banana (cheeta spotted are the sweetest)
- 1 frozen banana if you want it frosty
- 1 Tbsp of cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1 Tbsp of peanut butter
- 1 cup of almond milk (or to taste)
Place it all in a blender and blend away until you have a delicious treat
