Banana Whip (makes 1 large serving)
Bananas offer us protein, natural fats and carbohydrates our body can process well, plus a slew of nutrients, including potassium and magnesium. Plus, this whipped treat comes out so creamy and delicious, you'll think you're digging into a pint of ice cream!
I first tried this at the Bent Spoon (an artisan ice cream shop in Princeton, N.J.) and it became a college staple for me because it tastes just like ice cream, but is made from pure banana!
Broiled Dates (4 servings)
Dates contain fruit sugars fructose and dextrose, which act as natural revivers and offer your body an instant energy boost in the slump of the afternoon or as a morning pick-me-up. They are also rich in dietary fiber, which helps to decrease the absorption of LDL cholesterol in the gut, and contain plenty of tannins, an antioxidant flavonoid that has anti-microbial properties and protects cell integrity. The walnuts will also provide some lutein, another great nutrient to protect eyesight, and great omega fats, essential for cell communication and proper lubrication throughout the body.
Tear thyme leaves from stem and mash into goat cheese. Stuff each date with ¼ goat cheese and 1 walnut half. Place on parchment lined baking sheet and broil for 3-4 minutes.
