21 Day Fix Banana Mousse


This quick banana mousse recipe makes an unbelievably satisfying dessert or snack. Whipped bananas have a light and creamy texture that can be made into a sweet tooth-satisfying dessert that packs wholesome nutrition. 
Sweetened with honey and vanilla extract, then mixed with yogurt, this banana mousse tastes like a light and fluffy pudding. With only 79 calories per serving, you can even eat it for breakfast!




I was inspired by a post I saw on the beachbody site and decided to give it a try with my own modifications.  The photos below show two portions in each mason jar but even at that it would only count as 1 fruit and 1 red container if your following the 21 day fix so it really does make for a nice treat!  If you really want to keep it on track you could leave out the honey and allow the bananas to be the only sweetness.  

I could even see freezing this for a frozen treat in the summer time.  Although with the weather we have been having lately I could be freezing it now!  I even got out on the Paddle board on Monday evening and Asher was given an early birthday gift (a Kayak) so he came along with me!  I really hope this weather sticks around a while so that we can enjoy some more time on the lake once all the Pace shows are done!  



We have been back and forth to the theater for weeks with rehearsals and shows and this will be our last week of the spring shows!  Once it's over I'll have to whip up another batch of this for the kids and let them top it with whatever the like!  You can dress up this dessert with fresh berries, sliced grapes, cacao nibs, or a sprinkling of orange zest.  Really you can get creative and top it with anything you could think of!
