Healthy Frozen Treat

I’m always looking for  a healthy dessert. My desire for sugar unfortunately never wavers, so every day I feel like I am constantly craving some form of dessert. And since most desserts are not healthy, I am finding ways to satisfy my sweet tooth without all of the sugar, calories, and artificial (flavors, preservatives, colors).

I recently found this recipe in the Seventeen Magazine as a simple snack to make that’s filled with protein. And indeed, it is extremely simple and requires only two ingredients. You can enjoy this after a long day at school, or just as a cool treat to beat the heat.

Frozen Treat:

  • 2 sliced bananas
  • Peanut Butter
  • Other possible additives- chia seeds, honey, agave syrup, granola, cacao chips, coconut shavings, blueberries, strawberries, really any type of fruit. And if you are feeling adventurous and looking for some greens- kale or any vegetable juice

Directions:

  1. Slice the two bananas into small circles. Place in sandwich bag and put into freezer.
  2. Once the bananas are frozen, place in blender with two scoops peanut butter (or put as much peanut butter to your liking) and blend.
  3. Add any toppings you want! Blueberries, strawberries, the possibilities are endless!
