When you are looking for a little something sweet after dinner, skinny slices of frozen banana with a sprinkle of unsweetened cocoa powder are my go-to.
Time: 5 minutes + freezing | Servings: 2 (10 skinny slices each)
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
1) Cut and freeze: Cut 1 banana into 20 thin slices. Place them in a single layer in a plastic sandwich bag, freeze for at least 2 hours and keep in freezer for up to 3 months. 2) Spread and sprinkle: When you are ready to eat them, spread a teeny-tiny amount of almond butter (about 1/4 teaspoon) on each frozen banana piece and sprinkle with unsweetened cocoa powder, to taste. 3) Go EXTRA skinny: Omit the almond butter for just a straight chocolaty banana treat. Each slice is just 5 calories each! 4) Flavorize: You can use cinnamon or ground vanilla beans instead of cocoa powder.
