Banana Chocolate Milkshakes

Yet another reason to love Nutella. Did you know that Cost Plus World Market sells different kinds of chocolate hazelnut spread? Like caramel/chocolate and cappuccino/chocolate. And in case of emergencies, they also sell little pocket packs of Nutella. I got a bunch for our 72 hour kits. You never know what emotional tragedies Nutella might heal.

2 bananas, peeled and broken into pieces
3 scoops vanilla ice cream
Splash of milk
2 heaping spoonfuls of Nutella

Combine everything into a blender and give it a whirl. Add more milk or ice cream to adjust the consistency.

Heather, like I said, you never know what help Nutella can be in an emergency. Or maybe just a frustrating day with a toddler:)

Katie, Sweet Pea gets all the credit. Check out her blog for more goodness.

Morgan, please do have these. My little Jack ate these right up. Don't forget ketchup.

kpg, Nutella is a chocolate hazelnut spread. It is sold near the peanut butter. Look on the top shelf. You will la-la-la-love it.

Jodi, I am glad you liked it. How did Baby F like it?

Laura, thank you thank you thank you! I am blushing! You are welcome back anytime:)
