Frozen Banana Treats

In an effort to eat healthier and cut down on desserts, I have been finding alternative ways to satisfy my after dinner sweet-tooth.  This is my new favorite "dessert",  Frozen Banana Treats.  When frozen, bananas are a lot like ice cream.  This treat is so satisfying especially with peanut butter or Nutella or any of the new nut butter combinations that are in your local grocery store.  If you really want to gild the lily, add dark chocolate morsels for chocolatey goodness!!

This a great way to use up bananas before they get overly ripe.   These banana treats are a much healthier alternative to ice cream. Make a few of them at a time so when that 
sweet-tooth craving hits, you can grab one out of the freezer.

What you'll need:

  • foil
  • bananas
  • peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice (crunchy or creamy)
  • chocolate chips or any flavor chip

 Tear out pieces of foil.
 Melt nut butter in microwave for 20-30 seconds and drizzle over bananas.
Wrap up foil like a tent.
 and place in freezer for at least 3 hours.
 Remove from foil and thaw for 5 mins enjoy.  
You can slice into 1 inch pieces if you prefer.
