When you eat a bowl of ice cream how do you feel? My favorite ice cream flavor is Cookies and Cream! At first I feel excited to dive into a creamy and refreshing treat, but then I experience a little regret. Am I wrong to feel this? No.
With health comes happiness. And moderation. It is okay to eat a salad but to have a chocolate bar too. I like to find desserts that are more natural or something that I made. Therefore, I know what ingredients were put into it and I feel the satisfaction of knowing how to use kitchen appliances.
Usually a fresh, homemade smoothie after a workout is my favorite. But for now, here’s a Peanut Butter and Banana Parfait recipe! This delight is loaded with protein and fresh fruit with a light crunch (perfect to eat after a strength workout).
PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA PARFAIT
- 1½ cups vanilla yogurt
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ⅛ cup honey
- 2 bananas, peeled and sliced
- 4 Honey Maid Graham Crackers, crushed
- Combine yogurt, peanut butter and honey in a bowl and beat until smooth
- In a parfait glass, layer the yogurt mixture, the sliced banana, and the crushed graham crackers
