What if we told you there was a dessert that had no added sugar, no preservatives, and was actually considered a healthy snack? Not too sweet but just enough to curb that ever lurking sweet tooth. Think creamy, thick chocolaty goodness. Something that cools you off especially in this Louisiana heat. Ok, we will tell you already. It is frozen yogurt, but not your typical fro-yo. It is made with bananas. That’s it. You’re probably thinking we’re crazy and maybe even a little exaggerative when we say banana frozen yogurt is a freakishly close comparison to real creamy yogurt. Here’s a quick breakdown of how this works. Once you freeze bananas and slightly blend them together, the consistency that is created is just like frozen yogurt. We made this dessert over Labor Day weekend and can testify to its deliciousness. You definitely need to throw in some add-ins to make this dessert just right. Here is our recipe below but you can really add whatever you want.
This is for one serving but you could certainly make more depending on how many people you wanted to serve.
- 1 frozen banana
- 1-2 tablespoons of All Natural Peanut Butter
- 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons of Almond Milk (or you could use water. This is just to get the bananas fully blended together. Be careful not to add too much liquid)
*You could use a food processor, a blender, or a Nutribullet(that’s what we used). Here’s a tip: peel and cut the bananas in pieces before freezing them. This makes it is easier to handle when you’re ready to make your yogurt. It does not take long to blend and may seem a little difficult to blend up the frozen bananas. But remember, you are making FROZEN yogurt. The thick consistency is what you want. You can also freeze it for an hour or so if you want it to be more of a hard ice cream rather than soft serve yogurt. You really could make any flavor you wanted! As long as you have your frozen bananas as your base, the options are endless. Enjoy your sweet treat!
