I’ve been so busy the last few days and now I’m just dead tired! Unfortunately for some reason I can’t sleep, but on the bright side, I can brainstorm more recipe and food ideas. Here’s what I came up with- healthy “ice cream” sandwiches! Even with the cold weather I still love cold desserts. Any time is the right time for ice cream!
I went on a five mile run the other day and ate a few of these for my post run snack. They are high in protein, potassium and energy. A perfect dessert for breakfast!
I did try making one with a rice cake. It didn’t come out quite right because the rice cake gets soggy in the freezer.
Healthy “Ice Cream” Sandwiches, peanut butter flavor
Makes 8 sandwiches
Two bananas, sliced into rounds 1/4 inch thick
One container of vanilla greek yogurt, I prefer Chobani
Two tbsp unsalted creamy Trader Joe’s peanut butter
4 full size graham crackers, break into squares
Optional- chopped peanuts, for edges
Combine yogurt and peanut butter. You can mix the two in the yogurt cup. Spread a generous amount on one side of a graham cracker square. Top with four banana slices. Spread a little more of the yogurt-peanut butter mix on another graham cracker and place on top of banana slices to form a sandwich. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients. Put chopped peanuts on a flat dish and roll sides of the sandwiches in the nuts, coating the sides evenly. If you have whole peanuts you can use a blender to chop them.
I recommend freezing all sandwiches in one layer instead of piling them on top of each other. Freeze overnight, and enjoy!
Use Nutella Fruit Dip yogurt mix or mix in any of your other favorite spreads- strawberry jam, apple butter, etc.
Use sprinkles, chocolate pieces, or crumbled oreos for the sides.
