In the 1970s, the only dessert we had was a slice of banana bread, a sweet and savory treat, but when the advent of frozen yogurt became popular, the world changed.
For one, it’s made from whole bananas and is loaded with protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Plus, a fresh banana makes it a tasty treat that will stay fresh for years.
“It’s really easy to make,” says Melissa Lavin, a New York-based cookbook author and author of the new book Fruit Dip: The Art and Science of Deliciousness in Five Easy Steps.
“You just have to make sure the ingredients are good.
If you make too much, the banana will start to break down.”
If you’ve ever had fruit dip, you know it’s not just the creamy consistency that makes it appealing; it’s the flavor.
And it’s a delicious way to eat a fruit, with a hint of sweetness and a touch of flavor.
Here are the five most popular fruits that are loaded with nutrients and protein.1.
Bananas Fruit Dip The banana is a good source of dietary fiber, which helps keep you fuller and helps keep the colon healthy.
“Bananas are loaded, so it helps keep your colon healthy,” says Lavin.
“If you have a healthy diet, they’re good.”2.
Sweet Pea Fruit Dip While sweet peas are a good protein source, they also contain a protein that’s good for the gut.
And they’re packed with vitamins, which can help lower your risk of heart disease.
“These are the best foods for the GI tract,” says Doreen Kavanagh, author of The Best Way to Lose Weight.
“They help you lose weight.
The best way to lose weight is to eat less and eat well.”3.
Pineapple Fruit Dip You’ll want to avoid pineapples, which are loaded in sugar.
But there are many other fruits and vegetables that are good for you, including sweet potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, peas and many more.4.
Cashews Fruit Dip Cashews are high in protein, calcium and magnesium, and contain some good fats as well.
But Cashews can be a bit hard to digest.
They’re also loaded with fat and cholesterol.
“Cashews are low in fat,” says Kavanah.
“The best way of reducing the fat is to use vegetable oils or soy.”5.
Tomatoes Fruit Dip Tomatoes are rich in fiber, potassium, vitamin C and vitamin E. Plus they’re loaded with vitamins A, C, E, K, and E, which help protect the heart and help prevent heart disease and stroke.
“Tomatoes are loaded,” says Karen E. Zagorski, author and co-founder of the American Vegetarian Society.
“All the fruits have a high amount of vitamin C, which is great for your heart and your arteries.”1.
Banana Fruit Dip Banana bread is a popular snack in many countries.
But bananas are a great source of fiber, protein, and other nutrients.
“A banana can have a protein content that’s like a half a pound of meat,” says Zagourski.
“And if you eat bananas for breakfast, they’ll provide you with fiber and protein.”2, Banana Bread with Cream Cheese To get all of that nutrition, make a banana bread that’s made with a variety of toppings.
“There are so many things you can add, but the toppings are so important,” says W.J. Darnell, a food scientist and author.
“In addition to the banana, there’s the cream cheese, the cheese sauce, the nuts, the dried fruit, the chopped tomatoes, the fresh fruit.”3, Banana Cream Dip If you’re looking for a more healthful snack, try a banana cream dip.
“Anytime you add fruit, there are a lot of nutrients that are coming from that fruit,” says the New York City-based author.
You can get more nutrients from your protein-rich food, but if you’re eating more than a quarter of a banana, you’ll probably need more of a protein-heavy snack.4, Banana Smoothie Banana smoothies are great for getting your daily protein intake up, and they contain plenty of healthy fats.
“Coconut is a great protein source,” says Caryn Covington, a nutrition writer and the author of A Healthy Way to Cook: 5 Recipes for a Life of Health.
“But it also contains lots of healthy fat.
That’s why you’ll get a lot more nutrition out of a smoothie than you would if you were eating a banana.”5, Banana Peanut Butter Banana peanut butter is packed with healthy fats and healthy fats are great when it comes to eating a healthy snack.
“I think a lot people are surprised at the amount of fat in peanut butter,” says Mandy Trew, author, The Art of the
