It’s nearly bed time and of course this is the best time to make a quick evening smoothie before the kids head off to bed.
Tonight my 5 year old (soon to be 6yo) wants to make chocolate pudding.
Last time we made chocolate pudding before bed the kids were up late giggling… what made me think to give them cocoa before bed…but tonight we opt for Carob Pudding.
But, it can go either way, depending on the time of day.
We peeled and plopped 3 bananas into the jar.
Then spooned in some Carob powder. The recipe we created initially called for 1 Tblsp of Cocoa Powder, but my 5 yo is making this and feels we need 3 Tblsp of Carob powder (she’s our little chef). Okay…go for it, girl.
Then we pour in ‘some’ rice milk then a glob of natural peanut butter. (These measurements are normal around our house.)
No added sugar is needed in this, the bananas are plenty sweet.
It’s all set up and in the blender. Pretty, isn’t it!
Now it’s time for ‘lift off’. All little hands on deck go straight to their ears and I ask “Who wants to push the button?”
They look at me like…”Huh?”
So, I push the button.
Blending… all smiles around the kitchen.
Done! It’s oh, so creamy!
Just like out of a box, only better…
it’s natural and this pudding you can eat before or after dinner.
And again…I know what’s in it!
And It’s dairy-free!
We love our BlendTec!
