Dish It: Peanut Butter and Banana Popsicles

While on my never-ending quest to find foods that are both delicious AND healthy, I was downright ecstatic when I stumbled upon this mouth-watering treat on the Livestrong website. With January 24th being National Peanut Butter Day, it is only appropriate that today’s Dish It feature this high-protein spread.


What You’ll Need
:1 Banana
2 Cups of creamy peanut butter
2 Popsicle sticks
1 Cup of your choice chopped nuts or shredded coconut

*
makes two Popsicles

What You’ll Do:

1) Peel the banana and cut it in half, width-wise. Slide one Popsicle stick in the bottom of each half.

2) Spread a layer of peanut butter over each banana.

3) Roll each Popsicle in either the chopped nuts or shredded coconut.

4) Freeze each for a few hours.

Enjoy the delicious, guilt-free concoction you’ve just put together, and share one with a friend. The nuts and peanut butter are high sources of protein while the banana has you covered on potassium! Now THAT is something to enjoy!
