Try this new take on a familiar snack: Frozen Banana Bites with Nut Butter
Quick, refreshing and satisfying….
1. Cut up a banana into thin slices.
2. Make small “sandwiches” using nut butter of your choice. I usually make half with peanut butter and half with almond butter (pictured above).
3. Place in the freezer in an airtight container until frozen through. The frozen bananas take on an almost ice cream like consistency, which is what makes this snack such a big hit.
These are also great drizzled with some dark chocolate! Make a bunch ahead of time to have at your disposal throughout the week.
The Facts: Nut butters provide a good source of protein, manganese and heart-healthy poly and monounsaturated fats. Besides containing potassium, bananas are also rich in dietary fiber, which can help decrease cholesterol and promote healthy gut function.
