I told Tim the other day, you know, the best things in life really are free.
Like sunlight in the morning:
And sunsets at night:
Parks filled with trees:
Views like these:
A day at the lake:
And the man that I love:
I mean, I don’t know about you, but I need to be reminded of this. Because, as much as I talk about simplicity here, the truth is: I am easily swept away into opinions and concerns that are anything but.
That’s why I’m starting a new series here at the blog (in life?) focused on simplicity — starting with a recipe that’s so easy, it’s honestly ridiculous. Those of you who wanted more Vitamix recipes, here you go! Those of you who don’t have a Vitamix, a regular blender still works.
Behold: time-tested, always delicious, peanut butter chocolate milk.Print
Spruce up you ordinary chocolate milk with the addition of peanut butter. There’s not a better combination on the earth. It’s as good as…well, peanut butter and chocolate.
- 1 cup whole milk (raw is best, organic is good; other options would be diluted kefir or yogurt)
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter
- 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
- Combine milk, banana and peanut butter in a personal blender. Add cocoa until the taste and color are to your liking. Enjoy!
