Once the cleaning bug bit my behind, I have successfully transformed my cave into a disaster area leaving in its wake sore muscles, aching back, and tired feet.
Tonight, I wanted something for dessert without having to mess up my clean oven, or go to the store.
I wanted something smooth, sweet and creamy.
Taking a vanilla coffee from the fridge, one banana, and strawberry preserves (I didn't have fresh strawberries this time, but they would obviously be better) and dumped them into my blender.
It was the perfect dessert.
After I finished drinking my instant dessert, the ideas began rattling around inside my brain. The possibilities are endless.
Chocolate banana (Hershey's syrup and banana with Starbucks)
Chocolate strawberry (likewise)
If you don't have a bottle of Starbucks handy, then make your own with espresso, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract. If you want a bit more of a kick, double the espresso shot, or get brave and make it an adult dessert with coffee liquor, baileys, or other spirited flavors.
Like I said, the possibilities are endless.
I also thought about making it a little healthier and thicker by adding yogurt (guess that would make it a type of smoothie) or not so healthy with a big scoop of ice cream.
