Plan ahead and stock your freezer with frozen bananas and DASH cookie dough bites and you could be mere minutes away from eating cookie dough nice cream at all times! In this recipe, you can choose between chocolate chip cookie dough or sprinkle sugar cookie dough. Chocolate chip is my favorite, but I do like them both. The uninitiated may wonder, what is nice cream? Bananas, basically, but keep reading. When frozen and blended, bananas turn into a sweet, creamy delight reminiscent of ice cream, but without all the bad stuff.
Fudgy and satisfying, these small-batch brownies come together easily and make just enough for one household to eat by themselves (of course, you can share, if you feel like it). They’re full of fiber and nutrients and have no added sugar or fat save for a modest amount of chocolate chips.
Compote–a dish of stewed fruit–is great with things like low-fat yogurt, pancakes, waffles, etc. This version of fruit compote, is 100% fruit and eschews the traditional sugar syrup. It’s exceedingly easy, and I have formulated the recipe to use frozen fruit, since it’s so convenient to keep on hand, but you could certainly use fresh fruit too!
