This nifty idea comes Lauren Toyota of Hot For Food, who created it as a nutritious vegan smoothie recipe.
We adapted the concept as a chocolate-banana shake (peanut butter optional) with cow’s milk. You can:
Use a ripe, overripe or frozen banana. (With a frozen banana, omit the ice cubes. We stick overripe bananas in the freezer for baking or drinks.)
Ingredients Per Serving
1. WRITE “R.I.P.” on the tombstone cookie with the marker or gel.
2. BLEND the frozen berries and water into a chunky purée. Set aside and rinse out the blender.
3. ADD the remaining ingredients to the blender and process to desired consistency. Pour the shake into a serving glass. Drip the “blood” berry purée on the surface, insert the tombstone and serve.

*We like Milano cookies because their surface is smooth, making them easy to write on. In the photo, the cookie was also brushed with diluted black food coloring to create a gray background color.
