Monkey Shakes!!!! They're our new favorite snack. And incredibly fast, easy, and inexpensive to make, which makes them winners in my book! The kids love them so much that I find I can use them as a special surprise treat or an incentive to get some work done (as I did this morning- If we can get the house cleaned up in 20 minutes, we'll celebrate with Monkey Shakes!)
So here's the magic recipe:
2 1/2 C Milk
2 C Ice
1 Packet Instant Chocolate Pudding
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
That's it! Super easy! It makes 4 good-sized servings (I get 5 child-size cups full plus an adult-sized cup almost full). Here's the nutritional info if you use 2% milk and sugar-free, fat-free pudding:
150 Calories; 3g Fat; 8g Protein; 23g Carbs; 2g Fiber
Not bad, huh? That'll get a few ooo-ooos aah-aahs. Not sure how to spell monkey sounds...
And best of all......drumroll, please.......
You get to use a straw!!! My kids love straws :)
