When I finally uploaded the final pages last night (or was it this morning?) it was a truly exulting experience. I took a shower, stretched my aching back, and after a few hours even regained feeling in my fingers...
It was clearly time for a reward! So, late last night I whipped up these delectable little treats, and my husband and I curled up in front of a good movie for a long awaited evening together.
Chocolate Banana Smoothie
Makes Approximately 2 Servings
1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt
1 to 1 1/2 cups chocolate rice (or soy) milk
2 bananas, sliced and frozen
1 tbsp. ground almonds
Combine all of the ingredients into a blender (starting with the yogurt, then the frozen fruit, ground almond and then the liquid ingredients), and blend until smooth.
If the smoothie is too thin, add ice and blend to thicken.
Serve immediately, and enjoy.
