Chunky Monkey

It was 22 degrees below zero wind chill here when we woke this morning.

It has warmed up to a balmy five below zero this afternoon!

But there are no rules when it comes to chunky monkey.


That photo just makes you want one, doesn’t it?

When I asked a certain adorable two year old if she wanted one, she sprinted to the freezer screaming “monkey! monkey!” the whole way there.


That’s what I said!


Not impressed yet?

Well, this certain adorable two year old has not had any pain medication today.

At all.


The chunky monkey was delicious too.

Although I had to stand in front of the fire to bring my body temperature back to the 90 degree mark.

But it was oh. so. worth. it.

Praising God for no more pain medication, the pitter patter of little cowgirl boots, and sharing chunky monkey with five beautiful rewards. God is SO good!

Happy New Year, everyone!!!

    YUM!!!! Emily will make something similar for snack sometimes, but we’ve never frozen the bananas. We are going to try this! Thanks!

      Peel them and freeze them whole in a zip loc. Freeze them in a deep freezer if you have one. A freezer on the fridge doesn’t stay cold enough and they will turn brown. The frozen bananas make all things smoothie SO much yummier! Gives it a thick, rich texture!!
