I'm all about an easy meal or snack that not only tastes delicious but also does a pretty good job of making me feel good.
Enter: Quickie Eats. Once in awhile (or more often, we'll see...) I'd love to share a super easy recipe or concoction that I've whipped up in a pinch. I know not everyone loves to cook, so hopefully these simple recipes will inspire you to get in the kitchen a little more often.
Almond Butter Banana Fro-yo For One:
It doesn't get any easier than this, folks. Most of the ingredients are totally up to you, but the main idea stays the same.
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup yogurt (I use coconut-based because I tend to stay away from dairy, but feel free to use what you like)
1 tbsp nut butter (almond butter sounded great, but peanut butter will always have 1st place in my heart. Sunbutter is delicious as well!)
1/4 tsp vanilla
Toppings of choice: I kept it simple with some chocolate chunks. Fresh or frozen fruit, shredded coconut, chia seeds, graham cracker crumbs, etc. are some of my favorites as well.
Place first 4 ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until it creates a creamy, ice cream-like texture. Scoop it out into your favorite bowl, decorate and gobble up immediately! If you can wait, pop it in the freezer for an extra 10 minutes - it'll firm up nicely.
*Bonus tip: turn this into a great energy-boosting protein shake by swapping out the yogurt with your favorite milk (I use almond milk) and a scoop of your protein of choice. It's pretty fantastic.
How great is that? Quick, easy and delicious. Give it a try and tell me what you think.
