At SkinnyMs., we’ll never tell you to swear off dessert or take sweet treats off of your menu. Indulging your cravings for some of your favorite foods is important, as long as you treat yourself in moderation, and make healthier choices about the sweets you eat. Living a life devoid of dessert just isn’t a sustainable practice. Try going without some of your favorite sweet flavors for a week. You’ll have your hand in a bag of sugary, processed candies by day 7.

We’re here to provide you with some of the cleanest, smartest, healthiest dessert treats you can imagine. Our Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter and Banana Pops are an example of a healthy dessert recipe that won’t wreak havoc on your waistline. Start with a slice of banana. Sweet and wholesome, bananas are superfoods that are high in potassium and antioxidants, and pair beautifully with chocolate and peanut butter. Use all natural peanut butter to coat your banana, getting all of the protein and fiber from this nutty spread, with none of the additives. Then, dip your bananas in low-fat chocolate chips. These chips cut down on the fat and calories of your dish, but still contribute that one of a kind chocolate flavor that compliments banana and peanut butter so well.

Pierce each with a cocktail skewer, and you’ve got a dish that you can portion out into individual bites, helping you with your portion and calorie control. You can also serve these on a platter at your next party. They’ll be a healthy surprise for every guest who takes a bite!

  1. Do these need to continue to be stored in the freezer until gone or can they moved to the refrigerator?

    1. Hi Stephanie! Great question. No, they can be moved to the refrigerator once the chocolate has hardened but you’ll want to use them within a day or two (the fresher the banana the better). If you’d like them to last longer, store most of them in the freezer and only keep what you’re planning to serve that day in the fridge! Hope that helps 🙂 Enjoy!
