Yesterday while waiting for my mother-in-law while she was at a doctor’s appointment I was browsing through my Self magazine which I received the day before.  I’ve been looking for some healthy recipes that would fulfill my ice cream craving without eating the “bad stuff” and I came across this one.  

Peanut Butter, Chocolate and Banana

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 containers (6 oz each) non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt, divided among ice-cube tray sections and frozen
  • 2 small ripe bananas, cut into 1/2-inch pieces and frozen
  • 4 teaspoons natural peanut butter
  • 4 teaspoons mini chocolate chips
  • Cinnamon (optional)

PREPARATION

  1. In a blender or food processor, blend yogurt cubes and bananas on high, scraping down sides every minute, until mixture holds together, 3 minutes. Add peanut butter; blend on high until mixture is creamy, like soft-serve ice cream. Stir in chips. Serve immediately, sprinkled with cinnamon, if desired.
