A quick post for a quick treat – what do you do with your past-their-prime bananas in summer? It’s too hot for banana bread, so try this instead. The prep: peel your overripe bananas and wrap each banana individually in plastic wrap.  Freeze for 2-3 hours, or do what I do and store them in a bag or container in the freezer to be ready at any time.

Banana “Faux-yo”

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 6 oz. container Greek yogurt (any flavor is fine, but I like a simple vanilla)

Break the banana into 2-3 chunks and add to your blender. Spoon in the yogurt (pour extra liquid off the top if you’re not using Greek yogurt.) Blend! Look for a thick consistency like soft-serve frozen yogurt – you don’t want to turn it into a smoothie!

This recipe works better with an immersion blender – I just put everything into a cup, blend, and then I can eat it right away with a spoon. It’s great for kids, too – my son loves this as an afternoon snack. It is so similar to ice cream, you’ll feel like you’re cheating if you eat it for breakfast.
