BenGreenfieldFitness, we’re all about quick and convenient recipes that fulfill
those small appetite cravings. Sure, we could give you expansive recipes that keep
you in the kitchen for an hour or two, but that’s just not convenient in the summer! So
this week’s featured dessert/snack recipe is fast, simple, low in calories, and incredibly
tasty on a summer evening.
Turn on your broiler. While it heats, cut a banana or two in half lengthwise. Arrange in
a shallow baking dish and sprinkle very lightly with brown sugar. Optionally, you can dot
just a bit of butter or a small drizzle of olive oil on each slice. Place the dish with the
bananas just a few inches under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes (brown sugar will
bubble, bananas will begin to glaze). Serve with a tablespoon of cold yogurt, and
most importantly, a pineapple, mango, or papaya slice. Each half-banana slice, with
yogurt and extra fruit, will be around 100 calories.
