Hi friends! We’re livin’ the Disney cruise life – I’ll be sure to share some adventures + a recap soon! – but in the meantime, here’s a super quick and delicious recipe I threw together last week. I was looking to use up some groceries, and I saw a sad banana sitting in the fruit bowl.

Sad banana

I didn’t want him to go to waste, so I put some ingredients in a bowl,  poured the mix into muffin cups, froze,  said a prayer, and before we knew it, the girls and I were having some tasty banana nice cream chocolate chip bites. (I kind of hate calling it “nice cream” but it makes sense because it isn’t really ice cream, and there’s that whole SEO thing that I don’t really know anything about.) I ended up adding some collagen to the mix for a little protein, and I love the nutrition stats for these!
