2 Summer Recipes

Here are two new recipes I tried in the past two days:

My thoughts:
Well, I let my kids have this for breakfast.  They thought ice cream for breakfast was awesome.  I put almond butter in it, and no walnuts or chocolate.  It was delicious.  In fact, I want some right now.  But it was a lot of work for my wimpy blender.  I had to keep adding tiny amounts of water and milk as I was pulsing the bananas to a puree (which took awhile).  Will I make it again?  Probably, but I might try some non-frozen bananas before adding the frozen ones, and also make sure my frozen ones are in little slices, not quartered bananas like they were this time.  Perhaps a food processor would handle this recipe better?

My thoughts:
Tasty.  More work than I am used to for a recipe, but it was do-able.  My husband thought they were weird, but I think that is just because they were something new.  They were messy to eat and my littlest one didn't eat any, but he usually eats one meal super-lightly each day anyways (and he'd just had snacks and milk).  Will I make it again?  If it were just for me, yes.  For the family, we'll see.
