This next "recipe" is a good example of the all-too-common Retro WW mistake of taking a perfectly good food and turning it into an utter catastrophe.
Chocolate Covered Banana
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp brown food coloring
1/4 tsp coconut extract
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp butter flavor
1 tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup non-fat dry milk
4 tsp artificial sweetener
1 medium banana - peeled, cut in half and frozen
Combine first 7 ingredients and add milk and sweetener. Pour over frozen banana and return to freezer. Serve frozen.
So here is a pictorial review of how to take a perfectly good banana and turn it into a barely edible mess:
|Assemble the culprits|
|The unholy mixture|
The lesson here: Sometimes, when you need a snack, simple is better. Sure, it may sound like a great idea to top a frozen banana with a grainy, artificially colored and artificially flavored chocolate sauce from Hell. But trust me on this one - it is not. Just eat a banana, and be done with it.
|Food should not stick to the plate like this.|
After one bite, I threw this one in the trash.... Plate and all.
