Cottage Banana Whip (E)

One combo I can’t get enough of is banana and peanut butter!  This treat isn’t super low in carbs, but it’s not a sugar spiker either.  On the Trim Healthy Mama plan it’s considered an “E” for Energizing fueled meal.  For those lurking and wondering about THM, this is a low in fat treat, but moderate in carbs.

This was so so good!  I was thinking, “Jen, why didn’t you think of this years ago?”   Five ingredients folks….just five!  This will be such an easy snack or breakfast for you.  THM has their famous Cottage Berry Whip that I’d made for years.  So good and it’s a Fuel Pull(or low fat and low carbs). You can watch the girls making their CBW on a video too. 

You can take these treats in a cooler on a trip,  spread it on some Nuke Quean Bread, pack it in the kids lunches!  This would be a most wonderful fruit dip for apples if you go to a party.  No one would have a clue that there is cottage cheese in it!  You truly cannot taste it at all.

Cottage Banana Whip

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Put it all in a Ninja, blender of food processor and blend until smooth.  Mine took a little bit to get going, but then it was magic!  If yours is just too hard to blend, add a tbs of on plan unsweetened milk.  Just a little bit until it takes off.    Eat or Refrigerate.

I ate mine straight out of my Ninja, but some may like it colder.  I loved, loved it!  What a super simple E treat, packed with protein!

One SMART THM just gave me her an amazing idea.  She suggested leaving out the peanut butter flavor and adding some Slim Belly Jelly or on plan fruit spread on top to make a banana split type flavor!  Brilliant!  These also make healthy and yummy popsicles.

Can you use all natural peanut butter?  I’d say to using 1 tsp or so is okay, but it might not be peanut buttery enough. In an E setting you want 1 tsp of added fat or 5 grams.  Peanut butter is very high in yummy fat.  I love Peanut Flour because it’s defatted.  It is such good stuff to have in your pantry.  I highly recommend it!  I use it in shakes all the time and now, for this. I may need to buy stock in it.  You could also use some Peanut Junkie Butter from page 481 in your THM Cookbook!  I’d start with 1 Tbs and taste. Add more if you need it.

  1. Is there something I can sub for the peanut flour. Another flour? I am one of those weird people who cannot stand the taste of peanuts or Peanut butter since I was a kid. I love the simplicity of this recipe though.

    • I’m not sure on that one. You could just leave it out though. I made a note that one gal was going to do that and drizzle some slim belly jelly on some on plan fruit jelly on top of hers for a banana split type flavor. 🙂

    • Sure…any on plan sweetener. In my opinion it doesn’t need much because the banana is already giving it some natural sugar. On the THM website there is a conversion chart It says One doonk of stevia is equal to 2 tsp of Gentle Sweet. 🙂

  2. Thank you Jennifer. This sounds really good. I will need to wait until my bananas get ripe.

  3. Could you use PB2, the powder peanut butter? Two tbsp is 4g of carbs and 2g
    Of fat

    • I think THM has said that’s a personal choice item since it has some sugar in it. I’d probably use it up and then try some without the sugar. I just bought some JIF peanut flour to try out that has only peanuts in it. It’s at most groceries now. 🙂 So, I’d say I’d probably use it…until you use it up without too much concern. 🙂

  4. Since I have a fetish for banana, peanut butter AND chocolate, can I put in some unsweetened cocoa powder and still be an E?

  5. I live in Hawaii and have bananas coming out of my ears! Thank you for this – can’t wait to try it!

  7. Where does one find peanut flour? I tried my local Bulk Barn but they don’t have it. This recipe sounds so good and is so simple, but can’t find peanut flour.

    • If you don’t buy it on the THM site, then I’d say in most major groceries. It’s near the pb. I find it usually on the top shelf. I’ve bought Jif brand before in a pinch. Just check to make sure they aren’t adding sugar to it.
