A cool treat packed with nutrition is a recipe I had to share. These fruit based treats are also easy to make.
“Too Good to Be Healthy Crunchy Frozen Yogurt Bananas” may become a favorite family snack as they did for the recipe’s creator Sandra Leal.
Easy to make, each banana treat comes in for 132 calories and delivers 4 grams protein and 3 grams of fiber.
3 bananas, cut in half and skewered with Popsicle sticks
1 container non-fat Greek yogurt
1.5 cups toasted granola
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Once the bananas are skewered, roll them in cinnamon and nutmeg. Then roll them in Greek yogurt, followed by the granola. Wrap in plastic and freeze for about 4 hours.
Any non-fat Greek yogurt will work, but I have a favorite for several reasons. A farmer owned dairy in my area, Prairie Farms, introduced a new line of 100 calorie Greek Yogurt a few months ago and I love it! Each 5.3-ounce cup contains authentic strained non-fat yogurt made with natural ingredients and produced using milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones. Plus each cup contains 12 grams of protein and the yogurt is naturally sweetened with Stevia and free from artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors.
Another reason I look for this yogurt in stores is that Prairie Farms Dairy represents over 700 farm families. The dairy also helps families in need and non-profit organizations. The Prairie Farms charitable giving program, Our Caps, Your Cause, supports a variety of non-profit organizations and gives consumers a voice in helping local causes.
