Oh yes I did. I’m taking Cocoa Pebbles to a whole new level by adding them to a yummy smoothie. The great thing about this is kids think they are getting a sweet treat when really you are giving them lots of minerals, vitamins and protein.
This is a great recipe to serve for breakfast or a snack. It’s quick and easy to make and can be drank on the way to school or can be ready for the kids when they arrive home from school. It’s sure to tide them over to lunch or dinner because of all the yummy goodness disguised in the smoothie.
When I was asked to create a new and unique recipe using Cocoa Pebbles I first tried rolling a banana in peanut butter and then rolling the banana in Cocoa Pebbles. While the end result is delicious it just didn’t photograph very pretty. So I done what any smart mom does. I improvised. I grab the blender and I dumped the Cocoa Pebble covered bananas in with greek yogurt, milk, more cocoa pebbles and ice.
By the way, I grabbed this box of Cocoa Pebbles at Walgreen’s. I love that I can run in and grab great items without the hassle of the huge supermarkets! Plus it’s often on sale so be sure to watch the sale flyers.
You can adjust the ingredient amounts listed below based on how thin or thick your like your smoothies. I’ll share a basic recipe with you but all ingredients are flexible. Smoothies are about one of the most forgiving recipes out there.
Surprisingly, this smoothie isn’t very sweet so if you like things a bit sweeter you can add a drizzle of honey in it while it’s blending. Of course, the riper the banana the sweeter the smoothie. You’ll want to give it a taste test before adding any additional sweetener to the mix.
1/2 cup Cocoa Pebbles
1/3 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Handful of crushed ice
