Monkey Monster Milk

Posted Jan 03 2012 9:04am
My kids have been great to taste things for the blog, but they aren’t always great about the feedback.  Usually, all I can get from them is a thumbs up or down.  Yesterday, I had my 13 year old try some banana flavored milk I made.  Our conversation went like this:

nate drinking milk

Me: What do you think? Is it good?

Him: yeah.

Me: Does it taste like banana flavored milk?

Him: That’s what it is, isn’t it?

Me: Well, yeah, but does it TASTE like it?

Him: Well, that’s what it is, isn’t it?

Anyway- while he isn’t helpful in the feedback department, and he’s turning into a total smart aleck,  he did in fact drink an entire glass.  I think banana flavored milk would go over really well in the toddler arena.  The benefits: It doesn’t have any sugar added, like other flavored milks!
