Coconut Chocolate Chip Banana Shake

DSC_0129

This shake is a perfect night time treat, or add a little protein powder and drink it for breakfast on the go!  I was making meatloaf the other night and opened up a can of coconut milk, which the recipe called for.  I realized I accidentally opened up the coconut cream can I had in my cabinet on accident.  I didn’t want to just throw the can of cream away, so I set it aside in the fridge and brainstormed a concoction for later.  It’s really rich and creamy with coconut flavor.  Tasty!

 

I’m going to go to a Pilates class in about 30 minutes and I’m so nervous!  There is absolutely no reason why I should be nervous, but I I think it’s because I’m not that familiar with it.  I go to Yoga classes often and I’m assuming it’s similar to that.  If I can handle Yoga for an hour (I wish it was 45 minutes), then I’m sure I can get through Pilates.  I believe it’s a a tad more fast paced versus Yoga.  But, I’m still nervous because it’s new to me and I don’t like surprises!  Wish me luck!
