This post is for Jessica since she just got a new blender and was looking for a less-fattening chocolate shake to make:)  I found this recipe on a really cool blog called InspiredRD by this lady named Alysa.  It's worth checking out for some healthier ideas!

 

Ingredients
  • 1 cup milk (I used coconut milk)
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder (use raw cacao powder if you can find it)
  • 1 Tbsp. nut butter (I prefer almond butter, Jeff prefers peanut butter)
  • 1 tsp. honey (optional – use if banana not very ripe)
  • 1.5 cups ice (add less ice for smoother shake)

Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients in blender in order listed. Blend until smooth.

We got this recipe from ds dr to try and help him gain weight. He wouldn't even touch it.

 Even though your ds wouldn't touch it, did you try it??  Was it good?  :)

No it sounds gross to me. I didn't want to try it either banana and peanut butter and chocolate together sounds so gross. I just threw it out plus it was something to help ds gain weight I have enough weight lol. I think ours had instant chocolate carnation breakfast powder instead of cocoa though. I tried to get everyone to try it and nobody wanted any.

I hear ya:)  My sweetie has been wanting to gain weight.....why, I have no idea.....but maybe I'll suggest this shake to him (minus the bananas).  He's not really skinny, but he'd just like to be 20-30 pounds heavier.  I told him, "Do you know how many women would like to smack you up-side the head when you say that????!!!!"  LOL

Interesting. Good luck with that its hard to gain weight in a healthy way. Ds dr told me to start putting extra butter on anything I could get it on and lots of peanut butter and let him have any food he wants. So I have to put butter on all his vegies its kinda gross really I feel like I'm killing my son but he's so skinny. He has adhd and when he's on his meds he doesn't eat.
