I am always on the lookout for great, healthy snacks to add to my repertoire. I have a pretty big sweet tooth, so when banana soft serve “ice cream” became all the rage on the internet I was quite a happy camper. In case you have been living under some sort of internet rock, to make banana soft serve you freeze bananas (I chop up overly ripe bananas and keep them in a baggie in my freezer), then whir them in the food processor. That’s it.
One thing I love about this is that you can add all sorts of goodies to switch up the flavour. I’ve used peanut butter, different flavours of protein powder, and of course, cocoa! This batch had cocoa and is sprinkled with date sugar and slivered almonds:
Doesn’t it look like ‘real’ ice cream? I posted this picture on Facebook and I had someone accuse me of lying about it just being frozen bananas!
Sometimes I crave salty snacks, such as popcorn or potato chips. I like to keep a big bag of edamame in my freezer for this occasion. Not only are edamame great on salads, but they make a delicious snack. Usually I snack on edamame still in the shells, but this particular bowlful is pre-shelled as I had bought the bag with salads in mind:
