5-Minute Banana Pick Me Up

14 Nov

My sweet tooth was aching last night!  I didn’t want a true dessert, just something sweet enough to tame the crave.  I decided to whip up this ridiculously easy dish (really, 5 minutes!) – this can easily be eaten as a breakfast, dessert, or add a little non-dairy milk & it’s a shake!  It would also be delicious if you placed ginger snaps or raw almond cookies between the layers, too.

Ingredients (2 large servings):

  • 3 ripe organic bananas
  • 1 package of organic silken tofu, such as Nasoya’s Silken
  • 2 Tablespoons nut butter
  • optional: drizzle of dark maple syrup

Directions:

  1. Mash 1 banana and blend with the tofu & nut butter.  Dice the remaining 2 bananas.
  2. In a cup, spoon your banana cream mixture and add 1 layer of bananas. Continue to layer until you reach the top of your dish (I said it was ridiculously easy didn’t I?!). Drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
  3. Enjoy eating whole!

Taking in the view at Plateau Mountain.  A quick climb of 1,300 vertical feet and you’re at peace.
