5-Minute Banana Pick Me Up

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.

They are so light and airy, take a peak:
