Joy Bauer, New York City Ballet nutritionist and founder of Nourish Snacks—a snack brand that combines healthy foods and yummy flavors—gives one of her favorite dessert recipes for dancers: two-ingredient PB-banana freeze bites.
"If you're craving something sweet for dessert, cut a banana in half lengthwise, spread on natural peanut butter, sandwich the halves together, freeze, and slice into one-inch wheels. This treat is full of potassium (which can help prevent muscle cramps), protein and heart-healthy fats—dig in!"
• 1 medium-ripe banana
• 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter (or any other nut/seed butter)
• Strawberries or chocolate chips (optional)
Serving Size: This recipe makes one serving.
Note: You can add chopped strawberries for a PB&J; banana treat. Or sprinkle chocolate chips in the middle.
