Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream meets healthy breakfast.
Blend up a chocolate/peanut butter sauce and pour over sliced bananas. Top with granola if desired, and you have yourself a breakfast, snack or even dessert that is sweet and super healthy.
Bananas get a bad rap for being too sugary. The truth is they are a low glycemic food, with a glycemic index of 51.
In my opinion, God made bananas and said, “Here is a sweet, soft food that anyone can eat–even babies and old people with no teeth! It’s packaged in personal serving sizes. It’s wrapped in it’s own perfect wrapper so you can eat it when you have dirty hands. It’s a perfect combination of fiber, potassium, and other minerals. I’m handing you a very ideal food.” To me, bananas are nature’s granola bar. Perfect for nutritious on-the-go snacks, and for chocolate banana bowls.
Don't monkey around--go make this chocolate peanut butter banana treat!
- 3/4 c plant milk (I use almond milk)
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 6 dates
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 bananas

In a blender or small bullet, blend milk, peanut butter, dates and cocoa powder until very smooth.
Slice a banana into each person's bowl. Pour chocolate sauce on top. Top with granola, if desired.
