It’s happening. My daughter is saying new words every day, and as much as I’m trying not to succumb to the baby talk, well, sometimes it’s a little contagious. So I may have found myself calling her diaper a “by-poh” once or twice. Elmo is eh-ma, the cat is “me-AHHHowww” (said plaintively, just how the cat says it). And bananas? Na-na-nas. Naturally.
So today, I have brought you a vegan na-na-na chocolate smoothie. I know, I know – it’s only cute when she says it. Okay: vegan banana chocolate smoothie.
It’s made with coconut milk instead of dairy, and the word coconut almost made it into the title. But really, the coconut taste is overshadowed by the banana and the rich chocolate flavors. And how.
I’m so addicted to smoothies right now. I mean, they taste just like freakin’ milkshakes. And this one is no exception. The beauty of smoothies is that they taste sinful but they’re (usually) good for you. So how can you go wrong? I mean, you can basically have a milkshake free-for-all and it’s all good.
It’s almost like you can have your na-na-na and eat it too.
