This chocolate peanut butter banana milkshake is delicious and a healthier version of the tasty treat! With hot summer days in full swing and back-to-school season already quickly approaching, I’m always needing tasty, refreshing, and healthy(er) snacks for my 3 growing boys. So, I’m thrilled to partner with TruMoo to bring you a delicious recipe that’s big on taste and also big on good ingredients! In fact, this recipe has only THREE ingredients! And with this healthier milkshake, there is NO ice cream! That’s right – a thick, creamy, cold, milkshake with NO ice cream! So, what it’s in it then? Just peanut butter, TruMoo Calcium Plus chocolate milk, and frozen banana – that’s it! The frozen bananas give you the cold, thick, creamy texture without the added sugar and stuff in ice cream. Yay for healthy swaps! Then, the TruMoo Calcium Plus chocolate milk contains no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial growth hormones and no artificial sweeteners – but with 50% more calcium per serving than regular low fat white milk! LOVE this! It’s great that I can make a treat for the boys that they not only love, but is full of nutrients that are great for their bodies. The extra calcium is really great during these childhood years when they are growing so much – their bones and teeth could certainly use it! So, are you ready to make one of these tasty treats? Here’s the simple recipe:
- 1.5 C (12oz) TruMoo Calcium Plus Chocolate Milk
- 2 large bananas
- ¼ C peanut butter
- On a small parchment-lined cookie sheet, slice 2 large bananas and freeze until solid.
- In a high powered blender, put in the milk, the frozen bananas, and the peanut butter. Blend until well combined.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
To make it a little more smoothie-like, add an extra ½ cup of the milk.
SO yum! I love that this is great for a refreshing treat on hot summer days, an after school snack, or a healthier twist on dessert! Anything that is low on ingredients, high on nutrition, AND something the kids will actually eat & enjoy is a HUGE win in my book! I happen to like this as a post work-out treat too! DELISH!
