Banoffee Pie Made Healthy: My Go-To Guilt Free Dessert



Banoffee Pie Made Healthy: My Go-To Guilt Free Dessert


I absolutely love banoffee pie. But if you are anything like me, you have one bite and don't want to stop until the entire tray is gone. Even after years of healthy eating, it's like my kryptonite. But as I love it so much, I tried this flavour combination once and have never looked back.


I will say, I DO believe in eating dessert. Like real, sugar-laden, home-cooked desserts. And you should never feel guilty. The clincher? Saving them for birthdays, celebrations & get-togethers. Not enjoying them in the form of a 'slice' with every coffee or in the form of ice cream after every weeknight meal.


If you are an emotional eater and habitually reach for sweet things after dinner, this is a handy go to. When you are beginning a weight loss or health journey and don't want to kick yourself back into the sugar-burning roller coaster, having healthy alternatives up your sleeve can be mighty helpful.


The Joy of Healthy Treats: It's About Nourishment, Not Restriction


Incorporating nutritious desserts that still like a treat, into your daily life is a way to balance sustainability and enjoyment. It's about nourishment, not restriction.


By using unprocessed ingredients and only natural sugars, you're not only treating your taste buds but also your body and the environment.


Enjoying fruits like bananas in combination with healthy protein and fat sources significantly lowers the blood sugar response to the fruit. So, will you give it a go?


It's a simple and delicious way to make small, positive changes in your daily routine while still indulging in life's little pleasures.


This delicious concoction combines the richness of Greek yoghurt, the nutritional benefits of unripe banana, the crunch of walnuts, and the magic of cinnamon – all without the excess sugar. Plus, we've even got organic maple syrup as an optional sweetener for those who want an extra touch of sweetness.


So, Banoffee Pie Made Healthy: My Go-To Guilt Free Dessert - are you ready?


Banoffee Pie Made Healthy: Ingredients


1. Greek Yogurt (100-200g): Greek yoghurt is packed with high-quality protein and probiotics that are great for your digestive health. It adds a creamy, tangy base to our dessert.


2. Unripe Banana: Unripe bananas are an excellent source of resistant starch, which is beneficial for digestion and helps you feel fuller for longer. They are also a rich source of potassium, essential for maintaining healthy blood pressure.


3. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a super spice known for its ability to boost metabolism and regulate blood sugar levels. It adds warmth and depth to the dessert while providing a subtle health kick.


4. Walnuts: Walnuts are loaded with heart-healthy fats, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. They not only offer a satisfying crunch but also come with a myriad of health benefits.


5. Organic Maple Syrup (optional): If you have a sweet tooth and want a touch of sweetness, organic maple syrup is a great choice. It's a natural sweetener with fewer processed sugars.


Method: It's Easy As Pie


Making it is a breeze.


Here's how you can enjoy this delectable treat:

  1. In a bowl, combine your Greek yoghurt, finely sliced unripe banana, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The unripe banana adds a creamy texture and that delightful banana flavour, while cinnamon subtly enhances the flavour and offers numerous health benefits.

  2. If you'd like a touch of sweetness, drizzle a little organic maple syrup over the mixture. Keep in mind that the natural sweetness of the banana should suffice for most taste buds.

  3. Finish off your creation with a generous handful of chopped walnuts for that satisfying crunch. The walnuts add a nutty depth to your dessert, providing essential nutrients and health benefits.

  4. Top it all off with a final dusting of cinnamon and any other extras you fancy, like a few extra chopped nuts or a pinch of nutmeg for an added twist.

The result? A dessert that mimics the sweet, nutty, and creamy textures of a traditional Banoffee Pie but with a healthier twist. You'll find yourself savouring this delight without the guilt, and maybe even enjoying it every day.
