A Quick Snack. Frozen Bananas

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

I know, summer is coming to a close already, but pretty darn hot around here, so I thought I’d share a snack we reach for all the time to cool off.

Frozen bananas are a healthy alternative to all those freeze pops that invade the stores in the hot months.  And don’t worry if you’re not a big banana fan, they have a somewhat different, much creamier taste when frozen.

Just grab a bunch of bananas.  Peel them.  Cut them in half and put a wooden stick in the end.

For easy clean up.  We place a piece of plastic wrap on a large plate and then lay the bananas towards the center and cover with another piece of plastic.

The wooden sticks can be found at any craft store for about five dollars (make sure to use the 40% off coupon), and you’ll have 1000 to last for summers to come.

For a special treat, dip them in chocolate and roll them in coconut or crushed candies before eating.

Now that it has finally gotten hot outside this summer we have to try these homemade slushies (Momadvice)  with some of those packs of kool aid we have laying around. 

And to add to the fighting and bickering this summer, I can let the kids throw these sponge balls  (BetzWhite) at each other…or perhaps I will just throw the sponges at the kids.

And since we are taking lots of bike rides, the twins would love making their very own Handlebar Bag (Giverslog) from a recycled water bottle.
