Banana Chocolate Nutella Smoothie
This was inspired by our team's ever memorable team building trip in wherelse but there (?!)
For a little twist, I combined peanut butter and Nutella for a more nutty action.
For 3 medium sized cocktail glasses, I used:
3 ripe lacatan bananas
about 1/2 cup of nutella
about 1/2 cup of peanut butter (local - Lily's peanut butter. Love it to bits!)
about 3 cups full cream milk
1 tsp of vanilla
brown sugar - I suggest you drop a teaspoonful one at a time and do your taste test.
1 cup of crushed ice
Lucky you if your blender can crush ice really well!
Mine cannot crush thoroughly so I manually shaved ice through my manual ice shaver! Yes, like pawis-steering.
For more creamy texture - if you have vanilla ice cream handy, by all means add a scoop!
What to do: mix them altogether in your blender and slurp-slurp-slurp! (Or you may opt to chill it longer)
The heat is definitely ON! How's your aircon doing?
I have been to this wonderful promised land for just four times and been ordering Mango Shake like there's no tomorrow on the first three trips. Just for kicks, I tried this on my fourth visit and so glad I did. Of course, I will still have my Mango Shake - but now I know what else to get on my 5th, 6th and so on...
BORACAY, 'til we meet again!
