Bananas For Bananas


Raw desserts are not anything without bananas. Bananas are such an awesome way to sweeten anything and they are fat free and just awesome. Wait until they are speckled or super brown and make ice cream, mix them into oats, mix them with another fruit and make a topping, slice them into pies and puddings, make icing with them, they are so versatile and they are EVERYWHERE!

Since they require peeling before eating I don't buy them organic but if you do, try to buy in bulk and look around for the best deals, I can't go into a post without shouting out Trader Joe's so buy organic bananas at Trader Joe's, they keep the prices low. Sometimes when I run out of bananas, I feel like I have no food options so I try to always keep at least 5 speckled bananas on hand and I usually freeze some and keep one or two out on my table. I cut them in half and freeze them in pieces.

Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, fiber and they are super filling and give you energy. A banana and a little bit of peanut butter before a run is great. So is a banana mixed with greens in a smoothie (check out my smoothie recipes to the right) and of course, banana chia seed pudding pie! I made this RECIPE in August of last year and I've got to give it a shout out for flashback friday! This recipe is sweet, high in coconut fat (so only have a little or split the recipe) and super filling. It will satisfy your sweet tooth in just a few bites.

So Happy Friday! Appreciate bananas for how awesome they are and how they make recipes sweet and delish.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
