Frozen Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Banana Bites


If you crave something sweet you should try healthier versions of your favorite dessert. We offer you a recipe that is great for those who don’t have much time to try new things. It is also appropriate for the vegans.  This dessert is made of bananas, peanut butter (or nut or seed butter) and dark chocolate chips.

Peanut butter

Organic peanut butter is healthy because it is unprocessed. Peanut butter is made of roasted and seasoned peanuts that are grounded into a paste. Some brands of peanut butter are with sugar, hydrogenated oil and trans fats.

Here are the health benefits of the natural peanut butter:

–           Low in carbs

–           Rich in protein and healthy fats

–           Packed with minerals and vitamins (magnesium, iron zinc, and vitamin B3, B6,)

–           Has antioxidant power

Health benefits of bananas

Bananas are highly nutritious and are healthy for children. This fruit is often recommended to those dealing with celiac disease.

Bananas are rich in vitamin B6, fiber, magnesium, potassium, manganese, vitamin C

Potassium in bananas is great for the health of the heart as it eliminates sodium and lowers blood pressure. Additionally, bananas promote healthy weight loss.

Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate is good for your overall health in moderate consumption. It strengthens the cardiovascular system. Always pick chocolate with high cocoa content, because cocoa beans are packed with nutrients.

High-cocoa chocolate is rich in flavonoids (which repairs cell damage), antioxidants (which prevent free-radical damage), flavonols (lower blood pressure and improve the flow of blood in the brain/heart).

Polyphenols in the chocolate enhance digestion, treat anxiety and have the ability to help in dealing with the fatigue syndrome.
