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!
