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.

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
