Something For Your Sweet Cravings

I’ll admit that often times after dinner I crave a little something sweet. Usually a bowl of strawberries with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt and just a pinch of brown sugar will do the trick. But during our sugar detox I was trying to come up with something else to mix things up a bit.

I overheard Kathy M talking in class about her frozen banana dessert and decided to give it a try. The result was absolutely delicious! Really, I think this is restaurant quality (although the quantity is small so most people who are dining out might be disappointed!)

Here’s what you need:

A food processor- You can probably get away with a mini one. Mine has a smaller bowl that fits inside the large one for small jobs like this. A blender works in a pinch but it requires much more work.

2 frozen bananas

2 Tablespoons almond butter (peanut butter would be fine too)

1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Break the bananas into two-inch pieces and put in processor bowl. Add nut butter and cocoa powder. Turn on processor and blend until creamy smooth.  That’s it! This makes two servings so double up if you’re feeding the family.  This nature’s candy dessert only has about 200 calories per serving; not that I believe in calorie counting….if you eat whole foods you shouldn’t have to worry about that!
