Want a great way to use extra-ripe bananas? Don't toss them or force yourself to make banana bread to use them up. Try this super-fast nutritious 3-ingredient recipe for pudding, instead!
A recipe I discovered on Pinterest for Nutella Ice Cream was the inspiration for this tip. I had Dark Chocolate Dreams and no Nutella in the pantry today, so I adapted the recipe accordingly. I also added Greek yogurt for the extra protein and probiotics.
Recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Pops
6 ripe bananas
1 cup chocolate peanut butter, recommend Dark Chocolate Dreams
1/4 cup Greek style yogurt, recommend Stonyfield Oikos
Peel bananas and pulse a few times in a food processor, then puree until smooth. Add chocolate peanut butter and puree until well blended.
Add Greek yogurt, to taste, and blend well. I thought it was just right with 1/4 cup yogurt.

This "pudding" is healthy, full of protein, vitamins and minerals and is gluten-free if you use the Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams. I hope you love this recipe as much as my kids and I have!
