Protein Power Chocolate “Soft Serve”

Banana "soft serve"

Yum!

Last night we had a lighter dinner and I was craving a chocolaty dessert. I warded off the temptation to run to the store to get some slow-churned ice cream and instead blended up this healthier ice-cream wanna be. Made with Greek yogurt and peanut butter you’ll get a protein punch instead of just the fat and sugar found in ice-cream AND it will pleasantly satisfy your sweet tooth.

You’ll need:

  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • 3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 or 2 TBS peanut butter
  • 2 TBS (approximately) chocolate syrup
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • splash of milk
  • chopped nuts for topping (optional)

To make:

Microwave the frozen banana for about 30 seconds in order to remove the peel and slice into 1 inch chunks. Combine all the ingredients in the food processor or blender and mix until smooth. Pour into a bowl. top with nuts if you want, and enjoy!
