Banana Whipped Treat...

It's been a while since I have posted... kinda in a slump of good recipes, kinda busy traveling, kinda not making time to get on the computer- a little combination of it all! BUT... have no fear, we have a great new recipe to try!

Hats off to my sister for this one... she sent me the idea, I tried it a few hours later.... and well... we are having them again tonight! Super simple, really tasty, light and a healthy way to end your day!

2 frozen bananas (frozen for at least an hour)
1 cup coconut milk or almond milk
5-6 ice cubes
small handful of walnuts & chocolate chips for topping

Simply peel your bananas and freeze them- you can peel them and pop them in a freezer ziplock for at least an hour or two before hand. Put the frozen bananas in your Vitamix or blender with your almond milk and ice cubes and blend until whipped! Finely chop your walnuts and chocolate chips and sprinkle (heavily!) on top!!!

Add ons?? Try a scoop of peanut butter if you're a fan .... or a tablespoon of Flaxseed if you are looking for more fiber in your diet with a hint of nutty flavor! Want it more creamy like ice cream?? Lessen your amount of almond milk! Like coconut?? Use coconut milk in place of almond milk... really the options are endless!

Frozen Banana Prep: If you want to freeze multiple bananas at a time, peel them, lay them on a cookie sheet and then freeze them for an hour or so, then take them out, pop them off your cookie sheet, and then store them in a ziplock freezer bag. This will prevent them from freezing all together.
