Put the banana, chocolate syrup, milk, and crushed ice in a blender. Process for a few seconds until just slushy. Pour into 4 glasses and serve. Serves 2
2 cups light brown sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 vanilla pod
Bring sugar, vanilla pod and water to a boil in a pan over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Put the cocoa in a small bowl. Remove the syrup from the heat and pour enough of it into the cocoa to make a paste. Stir until there are no lumps then add the rest of the syrup at a time. Keep vanilla pod in the mixture and let cool. Strain the syrup when it is completely cold. It is ready for use.
