Kooky Cocktails - Funky Monkey

The second drink I created for Lee Ann's party, using Lisa Lillien's "Hungry Girl Happy Hour" as my template, was the Funky Monkey.  You can NEVER go wrong with chocolate and banana!  Especially when it only sets you back about 200 calories.  Not bad for a creamy alcohol indulgence. 

Interestingly enough, this one was the most popular at the party, although not with Miss Lee Ann, the birthday girl.  That's why it's important to have more than one bodacious beverage in your repertoire.  Tastebuds vary!

  • 1/2 Trader Joe's 100 Calorie 70% Dark Chocolate Bar
  • 4 ounces unsweetened vanilla almond millk
  • 1 ounce sugar-free vanilla non-dairy liquid creamer
  • 1 ounce almond tequila
  • 1 ounce sugar-free vanilla syrup
  • 1 teaspoon banana extract

  • In a microwave-safe dish, break chocolate into chunks and pour non-dairy creamer over the pieces.
  • Microwave for 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Stir to blend chocolate fully into creamer.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker about 2/3 full with ice.
  • Pour all ingredients into the ice-filled shaker.
  • Shake until thoroughly blended, and pour into a glass.
  • Serve immediately.

 Makes 1 serving. Approximately 200 calories.
