I finally got around to trying these – soooo good! They are very tasty! I was afraid that these would taste very banana flavored but to my surprise they don’t. I also made them with raisins instead of chips and also added coconut to the above recipe. I think they would also taste good by substituting the chips with crushed walnuts. I will have to try that one next time.
Make round scoops of ice cream and roll bottom into candy sprinkles – think all red, all green, green and red, multi (like is shown). On the side take Reece’s Peanut Butter cuts (small) and poke a hole on one side and then directly across from the other. Take a piece of string licorice and make a loop as the ornament hanger. Freeze well before you serve.
~ 1 cup frozen strawberry yogurt/1 cup banana flavored yogurt
~1/2 cup Nutella
~I cup frozen strawberries
~1 cup nuts (I have tried 1 cup mixed, 1 cup almonds and 1 cup peanuts to 2 bananas – and these were chilled)
Of course this was not all at once. So far everything was really good and I really liked it. It was a very good for you snack that I did not have to feel like I was being bad while eating it. All ingredients were frozen or chilled to keep the “ice cream” cold. For the nuts I added nuts from the baking section – these are what you eat when you are eating healthy because they are unsalted – the type made to put into cookies and desserts and not the ones you buy they are sugared or salted because they are really unhealthy for you.
What type of ingredients do you think you would want to add to this?
I saw these and my mouth watered. I often find that I want a nice tasty not overly sweet (and in the summer cold) snack. I have tried these and they are sooooo goood! They are rather simple to make and there are some variations. I will talk to you about the basic creation like is pictured and then give you some dynamite options to switch them up.
Slice bananas into 1/2 inch slices. Keep them consistent. Wipe a dollop (you can judge amount of a lot or a little based on preference but don’t make it too thick) of peanut butter (no preservatives and no sugar added – get as organic as you can) on one side and sandwich with the other slice of banana. You will need to freeze these to get them cold. While they are getting cold use a chocolate melting pot (if you are lucky enough to have one – I want one) or use a double broiler (two pots one smaller than the other with the big one having water to boil that you will set the small pot down into to melt chocolate in) to melt chocolate. If you are tight on a budget use candy melts but I often can find dark chocolate chip bags at a dollar store and that is your best bet. Take out the bananas/peanut butter treats from the freezer (you don’t want these frozen hard as a rock because the chocolate will drip right off). If it takes you a long time to get chocolate melted instead of freezer use the fridge. Now roll the banana/peanut butter treats in the melted chocolate and put them on wax paper lined COLD cookie sheets. When you get a tray of them made stick them in the freezer.
-Instead of peanut butter use a hazelnut spread from Jiffy or Nutella
-After placing dollop of peanut butter/hazelnut spread on one slice of banana stick slices of nuts (almonds, peanuts, walnut) into spread and seal with the other slice of banana.
-I used dark chocolate but by all means use white, milk or one of the flavored chocolates like mint, peppermint etc.
-After placing dollop of peanut butter/hazelnut spread on one slice of banana stick crushed candies (peppermints, red hots) into spread and seal with the other slice of banana.
-Decorate the outside with a drizzle of a different type of chocolate or melted candies to go along with a party theme or special occasion.
-Keep in the fridge or in the freezer after preparation – delicious both ways.
I hope you enjoy these delicious scrumptious (can be made in a healthy way) treats as much as I do. I enjoy going to the freezer when I get the munchies and pull one of these guys out and enjoy it knowing that they are really not that bad for me.
