A Tribute to Elvis: 5 Healthy Recipes with Banana
Here’s our dish picks inspired by Elvis Presley’s love for bananas:
First up is a healthy spin on the Elvis classic—the peanut butter and banana sandwich. Elvis is rumored to have religiously eaten two of these a day, but we recommend ditching the butter he added and following this simple recipe if you plan on keeping up. Regardless of how many you eat (and please use moderation), you’ll be getting a healthy serving of fruit and a delicious combination of flavor thanks to a few dashes of cinnamon and maple syrup.
Get your Elvis on in healthy style with this potassium-packed banana and peanut butter smoothie. With a short prep time of only 5 minutes, this makes a sensible option for those on the go. Bananas, almond butter, vanilla extract and skim milk make up the short ingredients list. Top off your smoothie with some freshly ground cinnamon and you’re in for a real delight. Plus you can throw in a scoop of Juice Plus+ Complete for added protein and nutrition. Elvis would approve.
Combining bananas, peanut butter, honey and just the right amount of bacon, the skinny Elvis waffle gives you the real unadulterated combination of flavors found in The King’s daily diet. The recipe is also flexible, allowing for the use of any homemade waffle or freezer-isle multi-grain waffle. We can’t help falling in love with nutritious, delicious and easy.
A banana recipe list wouldn’t be complete without some type of banana bread. This Elvis banana bread is great for those bored of the conventional and looking to amp up their basic recipe. Each serving contains 4 grams of protein, making it a solid breakfast choice.
Another take on the Elvis smoothie, this recipe ditches the milk and replaces it with Greek yogurt. The swap means you’ll be getting more protein and feel full longer. Want a chocolaty twist? Add in a scoop of Dutch Chocolate Juice Plus+ Complete and you have a great meal replacement that’s a worthy tribute to the King of Rock and Roll!
