Frozen Stuffed Banana Sandwiches

Hello,

Sheesh, my post title is a mouth full!!  It has been hot here, temperatures have been in the 90’s and man does it drain you!  With all the heat we have had, I haven’t wanted to cook, so you may notice my recipes this week, are light and simple and requires not much baking time, if any.  When it’s hot out, I prefer to snack on cool treats rather than eating a heavy meal.

So cool treats you wonder?  Today’s treat is something on found on Greenlean blog.  Kate the owner of the Greenlean blog posted a comment on my blog and invited me to visit hers, so you know I had to check her out.  I love her blog!  What I saw and loved were her frozen yogurt covered strawberries.  I took that idea and ran with it!!

These snacks are like my yogurt parfaits that I make, just all in one little package and frozen.  They taste best about a 30 minutes after you make them, but I kept some spares in the freezer and had a few when I got home from work.  Their such a healthy, tasty little snack!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I sandwiched the banana with strawberry and stuck them together with peanut butter and then smeared yogurt on them and sprinkled the bottom in some granola.  Adding the granola is optional, you really don’t taste it, but you do the other goodies on this sandwich!

I used toothpicks for holding the banana sandwich together, which makes it easier to smear the banana with yogurt.  However I ran out of toothpicks and I had to use a corn on the cob holder.  I thought you would get a kick out of that!  If you weren’t my friends, I would be to embarrassed to show you.  🙂

I recommend using a firm banana, and the amount of sandwiches you get depends on how long your banana is.

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      I love these! I made them three days in a row! I noticed by morning, someone has been stealing them out of the freezer!

  4. I’m thinking your treat with the corn holder looks a bit like a squat fat bird with a red beak and a huge white shaving cream beard that covers most of the rest of his body except for some little granola feet sticking out – no, I’m not drinking, I just have a silly imagination! But these treats sound wonderful for a hot day! 🙂

  5. Oh, I almost forgot to say that the bird has a sombrero too!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      Thanks Marina! Have a great day and congrats on your cookbook!

  15. These are so cute! My kids eat plain slices of frozen bananas for a snack quite often. I just realized how boring that is! I’m going to make them some of these for a change-up; I know they’ll love it! 🙂

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      You’ll have to let me know what your kids think of them! 🙂

  19. Hi, I loved this banana recipe, I saw a pic on FB Pinterest and clicked the link. I’m a bariatric eating individual and this is the perfect little “bite” size for bariatric eaters, would love to share this one on my website and bariatric chat group, with your permission of course. I’m making these myself tonight to try! Thanks for sharing!

  20. I love this idea and your comparison of it to a yogurt parfait. I can’t wait to try this one out! Maybe a little bit of cookie butter as a special treat? 🙂

  21. I made these as soon as I read this post! I might post it on my blog as well! They’re freezing as we speak! Thanks for sharing such a delicious recipe! Happy I stumbled on your blog and I’m looking forward to eating these healthy little treats!
