Easy as Breeze: Frozen Chocolate Monkey Treats

We're getting quite toasty in my neighborhood... it's supposed to be in the high 90's this weekend. I made these frozen treats in preparation for the sizzling hot days ahead. They are super easy to make, toss a few ingredients in a blender and pour into a mini muffin tin to freeze. Then just pop out one of these protein-packed, low calorie treats when you are wanting to cool down.

Frozen Chocolate Monkey Treats

1 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Chocolate Almondmilk
1/2 of a Banana
1/4 cup Chocolate Protein Powder
1/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt
2 Tablespoons Sweetener of your choice (SF coffee syrups, honey, agave, whatever you like)

Optional toppings: a few almonds, crumbled protein bar, berries

Blend the chocolate almond milk, banana, protein powder, yogurt and sweetener together on high.

Pour into a 12 cup mini muffin tin (about 3/4 full if you are adding any toppings) You can use metal or silicon muffin tins.

Add any optional toppings or combos of toppings. I dropped a couple of those yummy Blue Diamond Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Almonds in each one. Freeze for several hours. Pop out of tin. Store in the freezer in a resealable bag for up to a week.

This would be a fun and easy cooking project to make with the kids. Make them early in the day and they'll be ready for dessert in the evening. I serve them in regular size muffin cups. They make a great holder and drip catcher.
