When it comes to choosing sweet or savory, I ALWAYS choose sweet. This is one of my favorite "go-to" recipes to help satisfy my sweet tooth.
- 1 small ripe banana, frozen
- 1/4 cup milk or milk alternative
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
- handful of fresh, baby spinach (optional)
Add all ingredients into a blender for about 30 seconds. Enjoy!
This combination is perfect to tame any sweet tooth. The frozen ripe banana provides a natural sweetness while the peanut butter and cacao powder make this recipe very tasty. The spinach provides an antioxidant boost and it's a great way to sneak in extra greens that you won't even taste. Depending on how you want the consistency, you can add more or less milk (less milk will provide a thicker consistency while more milk will make it thinner).
**Tip: Make sure bananas are ripe before freezing. Once ripe, just peel off the skin, cut into 1 inch slices, place in a zip-loc bag and put in the freezer. Take out of the freezer and use anytime your sweet tooth hits.
