Growing up with a deep love of candy and sweets, I begrudged my sweet tooth for making me crave those sugary snacks. Now it’s a blessing, because three quarters of my diet is sweet fruit. Fortunately, I was never a big fan of salty snacks, since those are much harder to recreate 80/10/10 style. My cravings have switched from glucose to fructose, but my sweet tooth is still undeniably strong.
Speaking of fructose, my favorite recipes are those made only of fruit that still taste like dessert. These sorts of recipes usually involve lots of bananas, like this one does.
What form have bananas not taken…?
Banana bark! Banana ice cream bark with a smidge of vanilla and bursts of blueberries to be exact.
Banana Blueberry Bark
2 frozen bananas
1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder (or extract)
1 1/2 cups blueberries
- Blend the frozen bananas and vanilla until smooth.
- Stir in the blueberries,
- Spread into a single layer on a pan.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours then break it apart.
- Eat it directly from the freezer.
