Who says snack time is just for kids? We all enjoy the afternoon or after-dinner/before-bed snack time! Two of my favorite things in this world, and one of my very favorite combinations, are bananas and peanut butter. When I have a sweet-tooth I try to combine fruits with something sweet, like peanut butter or dark chocolate chips, rather than grabbing the pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Today I, of course, had a giant sweet-tooth. So I decided to take a walk down memory lane and whipped together what I like to call — a smudgie! This is a super healthy snack that is easy & delicious!
Ingredients: 1. Banana 2. Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy, your choice) 3. Graham crackers (I used the low fat kind to save calories) 4. Whatever else you’d like to add!
Directions: 1. Mash up banana with a fork 2. Add a few heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter 3. Mix banana and peanut butter together 4. Spread mixture on one side of a graham and place the other on top, creating a sandwich 5. Place in the freezer for a few hours 6. ENJOY!
Somehow…this didn’t TOTALLY suffice my sweet-tooth craving, so I melted some dark chocolate chips in the microwave and simply dunked my smudgie into the chocolate. Perfection! 🙂
