Elephant Monkey Choco-Delight and Panzanella

This milkshake/smoothie might not look too tasty, but it is my son's most requested drink. It goes well with meals, or can be an after-school snack. I always use Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Rich and Creamy Chocolate Ice Cream when I make this smoothie. It makes me feel a little bit better about the fat content. This pleases kids and adults, alike. We had it along with The Barefoot Contessa's Panzanella, because some things are so good, you just have to make them again. I made the panzanella a few weeks ago for Barefoot Bloggers, but repeated it because it has also become a new family favorite.

Monkey Elephant Choco-Monkey Delight
1 medium banana, sliced and frozen for at least 2 hours
1 cup skim milk
1 cup chocolate ice cream (I use Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned 1/2 less fat)

1/4 cup peanut butter
Place all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth. Serve immediately!

I love bread salad. My friend Marieke introduced me to it years ago. Yours looks wonderful, especially with a chocolate milkshake. :-)

The name of your smoothie is inspiration enough. You can't beat that flavor combo and I know-I testify that the panzanella is fab!
