PB Banana Frozen Yogurt

How was everyone’s weekend?  Nice and relaxing?  Full of non-stop fun?  A little bit of both?

I found myself with good chunks of free time and a sweet tooth.  That can only mean one thing.  Let the dessert-making commence!

Now most people bake when they have a sweet tooth.  I for one am not crazy about baking.  It’s nothing personal, I’m just lazy.

Short, simple, & tasty are my thanggg.

So here’s what I made:

This was amazing.  It totally nailed the sweet tooth and left me feeling good knowing that I was mostly eating banana and yogurt.  Thank you Shutterbean for the inspiration, although I tweaked the recipe quite a bit which is totally characteristic of me.

Okay, so this isn’t the fro-yo I made this weekend… (it’s actually a yummy dessert I got after a day at the beach when we lived in San Diego!)  But it’s the same face I made when I ate my banana fro-yo of the weekend.

Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt
Makes about 2 servings

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup low-fat yogurt (I used Vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/8 cup honey, agave, or maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Mix all this deliciousness in a blender, then pour into a small loaf pan or baking dish.  Freeze for 1.5 hours or until frozen.

To top ‘er off, you can mix peanut butter, chocolate (I used a few tablespoons of mini-chocolate chips) and a splash of almond milk in a microwave-safe bowl and nuke it long enough to melt the chocolate.  Ooooo!  So yummy.  The chocolate and/or PB on top totally make or break this dessert, in my opinion.  In the future I might add chocolate chips to the frozen yogurt mixture, too.

Slay that sweet-craving!
