Even though it is cold outside, and maybe even because of the cold, I crave ice cream. To satisfy my sweet (and cold) tooth I reach for a frozen banana filled with peanut butter.
Here's how you make it:
- Take a very ripe banana, since frozen foods tend to be less sweet, slice it almost in half lengthwise. Make sure to not cut the banana all the way in two.
- Put your favorite kind of peanut butter inside the banana. I like salted and crunchy.
- Wrap the stuffed banana tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for 3 or more hours.
- Unwrap and eat.
Why we love it:
Bananas are high in potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B6.
Peanut Butter is a good source of protein.
It is frozen so it takes a while to eat and eating more slowly increases the satisfaction. Plus it is a great ice cream substitute.
