Summer guiltless treats: Frozen bananas with almonds, peanut butter and cinnamon

Inspired by the Food Network and much recently the Food Revolution Day event at Chef Boutique, I made this fresh and fun frozen treat yesterday with friends and family.

So what do you need?

  • 4 bananas, frozen for at least 3 hours
  • 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • ground cinnamon, a couple of sprinkles
  • almonds flakes or slivers

In a food processor, pulse all ingredients, except for the flakes until smooth and creamy. Scoop into individual ice cream cups and sprinkles with almond flakes and enjoy!

This is so versatile and easy. I’m already excited about the many possibilities, this frozen treat can be flavored.

Happy experimenting!

Morning rituals: date oatmeal with sliced bananas

For the past week, every morning I go down to the kitchen grab a small saucepan, add 1/4 cup fine oats, 1/2 cup water and 2 chopped dates and cook away on the stove top until it thickens.

Sweet and creamy, I enjoy my oatmeal with super ripe sliced bananas and a pot of soothing herbal tea.
