Think of this as a healthier version of Nutella! Are you drooling yet?!
Use it on sprouted grain bread or rice cakes for a fast, easy, and delicious snack.
To cut back on the sugar, experiment with the sweetness level, starting with just 1½ Tbsp and adding more if necessary.
Here’s a little mind-blowing banana fact for you:
Banana trees aren’t really trees. They’re an herb and a distant relative of ginger!
And like most herbs … bananas have some pretty amazing benefits.
First, they’re packed with potassium, which most of us don’t get enough of. (Great for healthy blood pressure, kidney function, and heart health.)
They’re also linked with better blood sugar control.
If they aren’t too ripe, they also have a good amount of insoluble fiber and resistant starch – which is a good-for-your gut prebiotic. The more ripe a banana is, the lower its fiber content.
If you have a sweet tooth, snack on bananas instead of junk foods with added sugars. Add them to plain Greek yogurt or give them a schmear of almond butter.
