Recipe: Better Banana Mousse


Better Banana MousseTis still the season for desserts, so we have a creamy concoction for you that’s not only delicious, but also loaded with calcium and electrolytes. And here’s a little secret: With its 4 to1 carb to protein ratio, it’ll even make a great recovery snack after blasting through those New Year’s Resolution workouts that Santa left you under the tree.

  • 2 Tbsp. low-fat milk
  • 4 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 medium banana, quartered
  • 1 cup plain, low-fat yogurt
  • 4 slices banana (1/4 inch each)

In a blender, blend milk, sugar, vanilla, and the quartered banana together at high speed until mixture is smooth. Pour into a bowl and fold in yogurt. Chill mixture for at least 45 minutes in refrigerator; when chilled, spoon mousse into 4 dessert dishes. Cut 4 1/4-inch slices from banana, and stand 1 banana slice on its side in each bowl. Makes 4 servings.

    This was really good. I used soy milk instead of 1% milk and fat free plain yogurt instead of lowfat. I will definitely be making this again!!
