Well here we are at the start of another dreary workweek. And if the saying ‘April Showers brings May flowers’ is anything to go by, it certainly is here in the south east of England. A few weeks ago a hosepipe ban was put in place in our neck of the woods due to drought conditions, however, we’ve been deluged with rain and hail over the past couple of weeks, particularly this past week.
Yesterday, while on a Skype call with the ‘rents, we had lightning and thunder and my mom said she heard it. Imagine being able to hear thunder here in England across the pond in Pennsylvania!
I’ve been wanting to get outside to clear out my garden pots, but haven’t been able to as the weather is obviously not cooperating, so here I sit at the laptop.
While perusing for SBD recipes, I came across one for a chocolate milkshake…right up my alley! It’s really simple as it has only 5 ingredients and takes no more than 5 minutes to make.
~~CHOCOLATE MILK SHAKE FOR SBD~~
6 ice cubes
1 C skim or low fat milk
1-2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp artificial sweetener or agave nectar
Crush the ice cubes in a blender. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well.
Pour into a tall glass and drink!
