The other day I was putting together a typical breakfast, a banana, almond butter, and half a banana, sliced. Since I rarely make my grocery budget anyway, I hate wasting food. And I had half a banana left!
Hmmm, what can I do with the other half of this banana? I thought. It wasn’t ripe enough to freeze for a smoothie (I like my smoothie bananas basically brown!)
I know bananas taste good with nut butter (obviously,) so I sliced it in half length-wise and slathered on some homemade walnut butter (that I made in a food processor with walnuts, almonds, sea salt, and vanilla extract.) Then right before I was about to put it in the freezer for later, I decided to sprinkle on some nuts I had on hand – almonds and cashews. And then I stuck it in the freezer.
Four hours later I could not believe my taste buds. Holy delicious snack. We’ve all had bananas and nut butter, you NEED to add some extra nuts and give it the big freeze.
I don’t know how the frozen texture and added nuts make it that much better. But it does.
To make: just slice a banana in half length-wise, spread some nut butter in between, and stick a variety of nuts in the nut butter! Freeze and chow down!
Well I’ve just gotten back from training clients – now I’m off to go do some planning for an insurance company 😉
Hope everyone has a good day!
