If the wintery mix pelting my face during my run yesterday wasn’t enough evidence of the season’s arrival in Chicago, the snow was. And while I’d be a fool to lament the winter that’s inevitable, I can say this much: smoothie season is officially over.
It’s a good thing this hot banana chocolate is incredible.
BANANA HOT CHOCOLATE
2 overripe bananas
1 cup milk
1T cocoa powder
1t maple syrup
cinnamon to sprinkle
Blend the banana and milk in a blender until smooth. Mix the cocoa powder, maple syrup and vanilla in separate bowl by hand. Add the chocolate mixture to the banana drink and blend until smooth. Pour mixture in mugs, leaving room for it to foam, and microwave one minute. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and enjoy.
