Ever wonder what you could use those little plastic sticks they give you when you buy a takeaway coffee? They only usually give these ones when the coffee is travelling in a car (as in delivery) to stop the coffee from spilling out the hole in the cap.
I got one of these a couple of times and thought surely there must be something I can re-use them for rather than just tossing them out.
Well, it came to me the other day. Banana popsicles.
Given I’m trying to live a healthier life and given up sweets I make these as treats. Its not the same, but at least it gives me something to dampen down the desperate voice of my sweet tooth when it screams “I need ice cream!”
And frozen banana is surprisingly good.
Its easy. This is all you need to do: get some (preferably) very ripe bananas you no longer want to eat as they are. Peel them, cut them in half if you want, and put them in a baggie in the freezer. Done.
I’m using the plastic sticks as holders cause its very hard to stick a fork into a frozen banana and its not so much fun holding the melting banana in your hand.
You know what they say: necessity is the mother of invention. And no one is as inventive as me when I need something sweet.
