A sinfully sinful smoothie ... :) Its a kicker to the depressed, a zinger to the already happy lot.. here goes the banana chocolate smoothie, a treat to my hubby when he gets bored of the regular banana milkshake as his breakfast milk dose.
A quick but delightful smoothie it is. Here goes the recipe:

1. 1 banana
2. 1 cup milk
3. 2 tbsp chocolate sauce
4. Pista and chocolate for topping
5. 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
6. 2 tsp sugar(can be substituted with honey.)


1. Decorate the glass with chocolate sauce and keep it in the freezer, this way it does not melt and mess up.

2. Blend the peices of banana, 1/4 cup of milk, 2 tsp sugar, chocolate sauce in a mixer or blender as per your convinience. Once no lumps are left, add the remainnig milk and blend it for one last time.
3. Now the topping depends on you. Here goes my version: Some blend the ice cream with the shake, we prefer it as a topping. So one scoop of vanilla icecream over it, decorate it with
chocolate flakes, chocolate sauce and some minced pista. Oh so yummy... :)

Satutary Warning ;) : Make sure if you try this make two glasses, coz otherwise you guys would make the deadliest rivals untill the smoothie gets over... but its fun too... so your call... whether you go for a glass or two:)
My First attempt on candle making...
There's a creatively inclined side in me too, but its been some time now, moreover coz i have shifted to bangalore and i just dont know where do i find the crafts material market, and by gods grace i just have male fren out here in bangalore, so theres no scope to get any help from an Iam still hunting... if any one of you could help me out.. i'd be greatful... so finally in a local shop i cought hold of some candle making material and i wanted to try my hand on here i go ... it is somewhat time consuming but i managed to make 3 in an hour, and moreover i did not want to involve too many vessels... so here are my lovely candles... just wanted to share this with you... this is just my first attempt.. would come up with more with multi color ones in a few days...

  13. Smoothie looks delicious. Congrats on your new found hobby.. Today I was seeing an article in a local magazine about clear candle making. This candle is like water, meaning transparent, so they add decorative items to the candle. It was very cool.

  14. thanks sri.. feels good when somebody calls something petty as this a talent..
    hey arundati, when you say minus the ice cream, i think the chocolate sauce qty should be reduced, otherwise you may think simple banana shake is much better, the ice cream really compliments the choco content... atleast me and hubby dear find it that way..
