Mush isn’t Just for Babies Anymore: Frozen PB Banana Cream

We can learn a bit or two from the lil toothless guys.

By Claire Nunez


Okay, so you may be saying, “Who let Claire cook? This looks like shit.”  First of all, thank you!  Second of all, this is actually an amazing pre-workout snack.  It has a lot of simple sugars to get you started, and some protein so it gets you going.  I really do not know what you need for a pre-workout, to be honest.  Either way, this is a good snack for the summer also because it is a frozen peanut butter banana bowl.  Intrigued now? If not, you can kindly leave!

Serves 2


1 frozen banana

1 half-cup of vanilla soy milk

1 heaping scoop of peanut butter powder (can be replaced with 1 tablespoon of regular PB)

Combine the frozen banana, the soy milk and the peanut butter powder in a blender until somewhat chunky.  You want the mixture to be a bit thicker than a smoothie, so you can eat it with a spoon.  If you mess up, no worries, add a few cubes of ice or if you feel inclined, some greek yogurt.  If you do want it thinner, add a splash a bit more soy milk in there.

Another thing that is cool to do with this recipe is freeze it!  It is like vegan ice cream! Pour the mixture into an 8×8 parchment paper lined pan and freeze for two hours.  Then scoop.  It is delicious and is low-fat.  I can eat an entire container of that stuff it is ah-mazing.
