FOOD FUN: Go Bananas

These healthful snacks—bananas, peanut butter and a second fruit—have so much pizzazz that we think they can go right to the dessert plate.

You can use any flavor of peanut butter (check out these flavors from PB & Co.—dark or white chocolate, honey, pumpkin spice).

If you’re not a PB or other nut butter fan, turn your sights to another sauce or spread:

  • Dessert sauce: caramel, chocolate, etc.
  • Berry or other fruit (finely diced, mashed or puréed)
  • Honey
  • Nutella
  •  
    For garnishes, consider:

  • Berries
  • Breakfast cereal: Cheerios, Fruit Loops, granola
  • Chopped or grated chocolate
  • Chopped nuts
  • Cookie crumbs
  • Crushed toffee
  • Diced fruits (apple, kiwi, etc.)
  • Dried fruits: blueberries, cherries, cranberries, raisins
  • Seeds
  • Sprinkles
  •  
    For a DIY experience, put all the toppings on the table and let everyone create his/her own.

  • For something more filling, adds a side of Greek yogurt or ricotta cheese. We sweeten our ricotta with a bit of Splenda, to emulate cannoli cream. Sour cream is another great pairing.
  • For a fancier dessert, add ice cream/frozen yogurt/sorbet and a dab of whipped cream.
