Slender Monkey (healthful dessert)

#1 Postby Clever Name » Sat Jun 09, 2007 12:30 pm

Apologies to Ben & Jerry's and any folks who are offended by animal names in recipes!

Freeze a banana (peel it first and put it in a ziploc bag).

Top with Hi-lo cereal and slivered almonds (or other nut of your choosing).

Optional if you can afford the fat and sugar: chocolate :P

Scrape the frozen banana with a spoon to get some frosty, sorbet-like banana...eat it with the hi-lo and almonds, and it's like you're having a banana-nut ice cream cone! And I'm sure it is even tastier with the chocolate!

The preceding was taste-test approved by my omni husband, who generally doesn't like healthful food, either. :D

Sounds good...I am not sure what Hi-Lo is....
also I don't understand why you apologize to Ben and Jerry's....

Hi-lo is a special cereal I get at Whole Foods. It's got lots of protein and tastes like graham crackers.

Apologies to Ben & Jerry's because they have a flavor of ice cream called Chunky Monkey. Banana ice cream with walnuts and dark chocolate. Very tasty...and now available (at least a similar concoction) from Purely Decadent (Soy Delicious brand) as a flavor called Swinging Anna Banana. Of course, my recipe is more nutritious...probably not quite as tasty, though!

And I do recognize Ben and Jerry's ought to be the ones apologizing...to the cowies. :(

It does sound good! I was pretty excited to see that Purely Decadant came out with 3 new flavors! I love that brand of ice cream. :D
