We toured Joanna's Streamlined Brooklyn Kitchen yesterday, and now she's sharing a refreshing recipe! This simple "milkshake" is in regular rotation in the Goddard/Williams household. It's a healthy twist on a classic, but the kids feel like they're getting a major treat, and the adults sometimes partake too. After trying it myself, I can attest it's a great afternoon pick-me-up.
Chocolate-Banana Shake from Pretend Soup
This simple recipe comes from Mollie Katzen and Ann Henderson's kids cookbook, Pretend Soup, an adorable, illustrated cookbook that this family uses all the time. It's also full of healthy vegetarian recipes — great for small toddlers up to more older and sophisticated kids learning their way around the kitchen. It looked so lively and cheerful, I just bought a copy — and I don't even have children!
