The Cheap & Easy Treat!

This is the easiest treat to prep with the longest wait time. This is why it should be made in advance with extras stored in your freezer.

Ingredients:
Banana (s)
Almond Butter (1 TBSP, depending on the amount of bananas)
Coconut Flakes (unsweetened, 1 TBSP depending on the amount of bananas)
Sea Salt

Instructions:
1. Toast 1 tablespoon of coconut flakes (approximately 4-5 minutes)
2. Peel bananas
3. Spread 1 tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter (no sugar added) on the banana, 4. Add a dash of sea salt, then freeze for one hour

You are all done with the prep work. So easy, right?
Now you wait, read or exercise. Go be productive.
TOD (Tip of the day):  When you indulge in a treat, avoid eating it on the run. First, it will be gone before you even remember putting it in your mouth. (Haha, I know you know what I am talking about. You scan the kitchen counter tops, hoping to find the treat you want to eat, not realizing, “Oh, crap! Did I already eat it?”) You will most likely grab another portion because you can’t remember eating the first. Not a good habit to form. 
 
Enjoy your treat while journaling or reflecting on your day. Allow it to be enjoyable for a few moments.  If you do not have time to enjoy it, maybe you do not need it.
 
*Compared to fro-yo this is a cost effective & healthier option. *
 
**Option – slice bite size banana pieces to store in the freezer. This way you have this little burst of energy ready for the days you need a quick pick me up.
