Banana Butter

After a run outside in the beautiful sunshine, I came home and eagerly pulled out my favorite kitchen appliance– Mr. Food Processor. Yes, my love affair with Mr. FP is still going strong.

Today, Mr. FP aided me in refueling with peanut butter and banana pudding.  But this creation doesn’t just stop at pudding; it can be used anywhere that you’d use pb– on a sandwich, on oatmeal, in your little sister’s hair…

And it has the one-up on regular peanut butter because it:

A. is easier to spread

B. tastes sweeter (without added sugar)

C. gives you a serving of fruit

D. can be a thinner or thicker consistency, depending on the amount of banana you use

Banana Butter

  • 3-4 tablespoons nut butter of your choice (I used regular peanut butter today)
  • 1 banana

Blend the nut butter and banana in the blender or food processor. You can eat it as a pudding OR you can use it as a spread or dip for waffles, crackers, a sandwich, a tortilla roll-up, oatmeal, or whatever else strikes your fancy. I bet it would taste superb if you added some chocolate chips to the mix, either before or after blending.

By the way, the smiley face is NOT some weird substance floating on my pudding– I drew it into the picture with Photoshop. Just in case you were wondering ;).

    Possibly two of the most greatest things in the world
    You’re so clubbing with me even if u don’t have banana men. Seriously, if you’re ever for some obscure reason in South Australia, I’d totally hit the town with you girl

    Oooh yummy! There isn’t a day where I DON’T crave PB & banana…I finished a whole jar [750g!!!!] of PB by myself in a week!
    I want a food processor so so so badly, but it’s a hassle to carry around since I live out of province for school and am moving out of the house I’m living in this year….gaah
    By the way, the smiley face you drew cracked me up! Thanks for the smiles XD

    I get good use out of my fairly new food processor making nut butters and hummus, I should have bought one years ago as it has saved me a fortune and homemade is much tastier as well I have found.

  8. glidingcalm says

    sounds yummy. PB and bananas are always winners with me! is it thick though? i can’t tell from the picture?

  9. loveofoats says

    Mmm this is kind of like my frozen banana – pb concotion, except I never thought to blend it into a pudding! YUM…

  10. Ricki says

    When I first looked at your photo, I thought, “Well, PB and banana is good, but how do I get that smiley face??” Hmmm. No photoshop for me–so smile (except mine when I eat it).

  11. Katie says

    Hi Katie (great name), I’ve just eaten this with the cacao-coconut butter (alternating spoonfuls!). Absolutely divine indulgent treat that I can’t believe has no sugar or processed crap! Love your blog!
