Happy Friday!

I just couldn’t resist! :biggrin:

I told you last night that I discovered a fun post-workout treat. I decided to make a twist on the classic banana and nut butter ‘sandwich’.

I’m sure this snack is not new to many of you, but it was a first for me!

Chilly ‘Naner, Nib, ‘n Nut Butter Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, sliced along the length to create 2 halves
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)
  • Cacao nibs or chocolate chips for sprinkling

 

Directions: Slice banana along the length to create two halves. Spread with a layer of nut butter and sprinkle with cacao nibs. Assemble the banana back together by placing the halves onto each other. Pop into a container and place in the freezer for 1-4 hours, making sure not to allow it to completely freeze. Enjoy whole or by slicing into rounds, after a hot + sweaty workout!

Mmmmm! Loved this after my run yesterday! It was so refreshing. The key is to not freeze it for too long. The goal here is cold, but not hard and frozen completely.

The cacao nibs gave it a great texture too!

I started this morning with a fresh juice composed of 1 large beet, 2 carrots, 1/2 a lemon, small piece of ginger, and 1/2 a cuke:

Along with Japanese Sencha green tea

I got to work making Glo Dough and Chocolate Macaroons for the Oakville Organic Farmer’s Market tomorrow.

I am having fun experimenting in the kitchen with new goodies!

The rest of the day will be devoted to making Glo Bars for tomorrow, paper work, and banking. I also need to call the government and find out how the new HST tax is going to effect my business.

Word on the street is that Eric is making me breakfast this morning so I am eagerly awaiting getting my tummy (haha I just wrote ‘yummy’!) filled.

Today’s question: What are your favourite desserts or treats, if you could have anything in the world?

I am a pretty classic girl…I love cupcakes or a slice of cake with tons of delicious piped, thick, frosting. I also love pumpkin pie, rich and moist banana bread, macaroons, soft ginger cookies, and cookie dough. Mmm, this just gave me a huge craving to make banana bread now!

I’ll see you later. Have a great Friday!

That’s a good idea to slice the banana and eat it with a fork. I imagine it’d get pretty messy otherwise!

Ooh! Such a fun post–great pictures, it’s definitely making me hungry. I love my mom’s sponge roll cake filled with whipped cream and fresh raspberries and other berries. Yummm

If they do freeze too much, just use the pieces to make a banana soft-serve! The soft-serve is sooooo good when made with peanut butter :)

That looks so delicious! Do you find cocoa nibs sometimes taste a bit burnt? I love the crunch but can’t get used to the taste!

They are very bitter…that is why I find they are best paired with a sweet food (like banana soft serve)

i absolutely LOVE pie, saskatoon berry, apple or pumpkin pie are my favourite. I also love macaroons. Also cheesecake. I don’t eat much of that stuff which is probably a good thing, but i indulge every now and again

My favorite dessert…. honestly… fresh, in-season berries (rasp, blue, black, straw). out of season, chocolate ice cream. :-D

Oh wow that banana sandwich looks AWESOME :)

My fav dessert as of late HAS to be frozen yogurt. It’s ridiculous how addicting it is!!!

Without a doubt I would have to say cheesecake!
Any flavour will do, they are all AMAZING!

I pretty much like anything with icing or ice cream. Coconut macaroons are a favorite also, as well as molten lava cake any kind of fruit cobbler or fruit pie a la mode. Yum!

I can’t wait to a chilly banana sandwich!
Fave dessert: creme brulee, whether making it myself (I actually own a small torch for doing the top) or ordering it. :) *scrumptious*

Here is a great recipe for PB Banana “ice cream”
1 frozen banana
1 T peanut butter
1 T honey
Process for a few minutes in a food processor, it turns out like creamy banana ice cream. Yummy!

I just want to say that I made the cold banana snack with peanut butter and cinnamon, and I am addicted!! I don’t even need ice cream or cake! When I crave something sweet and decadent, I put this baby together. It works like a charm! The only trouble is trying to keep it to one a day! (So I can keep some variety in my diet.)
