Peanut Butter, Banana Snacks Etc

These are quick to make but require a few hours to freeze. Tasty and of course there are variations. Nice, summery dessert. Your family may eat all of them, so either make a lot or lock them up.

Simple 10 piece version.
1 small banana sliced into 10 flat pieces (Trim those pointy ends so the pieces lie flat.)
Set on small plate or pie tin or– something that will easily fit into a prepared! place in your freezer.

2 T of peanut or other nut butter (more about nut butters in another blog) divied up so you’ll put about 1/2 t on each banana slice.

Freeze. That’s it. I add a bit of sugar-free chocolate sauce for extra scrumptiousness.

Variations:
Different fruits both peeled and pitted, For example use canned pear slices or peach halves. (No berries unless you can handle the seeds.)

Nut butters – you can buy almond and probably other nut butters. Look for a smooth finish. No chunky style.

Various toppings. Smucker’s makes a sugar-free caramel ice cream topping as well as fudge. Look for it near the ice cream section. You could make your own by using cocoa powder, stevia and a little milk.

My mouth is watering now, just thinking of a peach with caramel topping, filled with a walnut butter. Oh yeah.

If you eat 10 pieces using a banana, you’ll be getting 1 fruit exchange, maybe 15 – 20 grams of carbs depending on the size of the banana, 2 T of peanut butter is 1 high fat,protein exchange, 7 grams of carb and the sugar-free chocolate sauce, is only 4 grams of carb per 2 T (you may not need that much.)

As always, if you have diabetes, test your BG an hour after consumption
