Frozen Banana Cherry Bars

Serves: 4

Happy Thursday! I hope you’re having a great week and are having the same amazing weather that we are having over here in NJ! I can’t get over how gorgeous it is, which puts me in a fantastic mood AND makes me crave nothing but cold treats and salads like I mentioned yesterday! So today I decided to share with you one of the cold treats I have been snacking on! These frozen bars have been one of my ‘go-to’ snacks over the last few days! Just keep them sealed in the freezer and they are ready to enjoy any time! They are the perfect way to kick off summer tomorrow!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

  • These looks amazing Sarah!!!!! Course I don't have almond flour so would have to try with what I have! :) You come up with the best recipes that do not require a mixer or blender! Beautiful weather here - not too hot - perfect!!!! My walks have been great! I typically do not eat frozen treats except the trip to Golden Spoon! ;)

    Sounds delicious, as usual! Besides the froyo shops (duh!), I have been eating plain Chobani mixed with cottage cheese, cacao, and cinnamon which I freeze for about 30 minutes and top with cacao nibs. So good at night! But then, I'm eating pretty much everything cold these days. WAY too hot to cook!

  • Mmm. I would have never thought to combine cherries and bananas for some reason.

    These look great! Lately I've been making 'clean' creamsicles - so easy! Just blend vanilla protein powder, organic yogurt (I actually use vanilla), fresh orange juice and ice in blender. Pour mixture into ice pop molds or dixie cups and freeze. YUM

  • Those look delicious!!! I love froyo or ice cream if I'm being naughty. Frozen grapes are amazing too. It is full winter time here so it is freezing!

  • Soo, I lived off of frozen banana & PB bars all last summer--can't believe I forgot all about them! Thanks for the reminder! And the cherry-banana combo sounds pretty spectacular too...

  • Yum Yum! Question for ya...I tried making something similar eons ago but it totally failed in that it was too hard to cut and eat. Do you let them thaw out for a while?
