After looking at all of the recipes I chose the Dairy Free Banana Almond Milkshake. This one was the one for one reason. The coconut ice cream. I have been wanting to try coconut milk ice cream for forever. I love coconut milk so I figured the ice cream would be fantastic. The only thing that has stopped me is the price. The little containers are well over $5. Since I look the Secret Recipe Post as a little blog assignment each month I granted myself a little leniency with the food budget.
I haven't had too many cravings with this pregnancy. In fact 26 weeks in and I still don't have much of an appetite. The one thing that does hit me every once in a while is ice cream. Sure enough not long after I saw this recipe I had a hankering one night for some ice cream. I whipped up this little shake and it was so good.
I have made it several other times since. I figure it is pretty nutritious given the almond butter and banana. Almost like a smoothie right? The only problem is not that I have tried the coconut milk ice cream I know it is good. I have to find a way not to make that pricey purchase a common occurrence.
