seth and i have a new love.
we started making these 'milk shakes' that are just bananas, a little bit of cocoa, soy milk and ice and they are delicious....
THEN i discovered the super special treat milk shake.... which is still relatively healthy.... and low fat...
it makes about 2 big shakes:
chocolate syrup or powder to your liking
i think about a cup to a cup and a half of soy milk
as much ice you'd like. i like a lot cause i like it thick.
spoonful of peanut butter.
it takes like the most wonderful milk shake you've ever had, and theres not even ice cream in it!!! love it. especially because ice cream pretty much ALWAYS gives me a stomach ache, and i thought it was because of the amount i ate, but now i KNOW its because of the dairy... which i could get soy ice cream, but i dont like the taste when its plain ice cream and in the shake it doesn't matter now cause i dont even need ice cream! awesome.
try it, you'll love it.
* speaking of treats, seth laughed at me today because he heard me saying 'ara, i'm so proud of you. i love how you eat whatever i tell you you need to, that you eat all your healthy really good food before you have a treat like this apple' ... (cause she had just finished all her rice, beans and brown rice pasta in order to get the apple)
and he was like 'an apple?' that's a treat? and i was like 'well most of the time, i mean a super special treat is something crazy... but usually fruit is her treat.' haha i know i'm a dork... but i dont want her having so much sugar and i really was just feeling so proud of her because you always see kids refuse to eat stuff and saying they want something else and EVERY time she has tried this we stick to our guns and say 'nope. this first, then the apple' and EVERY time she finishes the good food and then all of us are so much more happy and proud of her when she gets to eat that apple, even her. what a good girl.
