I know that bananas aren’t good when you’re trying to lose weight, because they have a lot of sugar, but I figure it’s much better to eat a banana than an entire Entenmann’s Banana Crunch Cake in one weekend, which I have been known to do.
I’ve been making a lot of banana smoothies recently. I do this when I’m at work using my mini blender that I bought like 3 years ago for $15. I do a lot of “cooking” in the office, actually – my coworkers are always going on about how I have such a healthy diet, because I’m constantly in our kitchen making salads, eggs (using my microwave egg poacher – best invention ever!), avocado sauce, or smoothies.
Sugar-free banana smoothie
- One really ripe banana
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- Skim milk (about a cup)
- Truvia or other sweetener (optional)
Mix everything in the blender. Sometimes I might add a packet of Truvia, depending on how sweet the banana is.
That’s it. Soooo good.
