Frozen PB&J Banana Bites

We used grape jelly, which turned the PB&J part a very deep color.

I bought a big bunch of bananas last week for my daily Banana-Berry Smoothies and Peaches and Cream Smoothies. Unfortunately, I ended up in the hospital for a few days and when I came home, a sad set of bananas were waiting for me on the counter. I had to do something pronto. Since my son loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I thought I'd give this a try. They are awesome! The bananas are so creamy because they are frozen and the peanut butter gives a nice little hit of protein. You could also skip the jelly and just do PB bites, or skip that too and use Nutella. Mmmm, Nutella...

Frozen PB&J Banana Bites

What I use:
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 Tbsp. all-natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. all-natural fruit spread, any flavor
How I do it:

1. Peel the bananas and slice them into 1/4 inch rounds.

2. Place half of the slices on a small waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.

3. Mix the peanut butter and jelly together in a small bowl and put into a small zip-top bag.

4. Snip off the corner of the bag and squeeze some PB&J onto each banana slice.

5. Put the remaining banana slices on top, making little "sandwiches".

6. Freeze for 1 to 2 hours, or until solid. Transfer to a freezer bag for up to one week.
