Actually Good & Good For Ya!!

Before I forget how I made was....

This is one portion... Doesn't have a name, haha, except delicious, nutritious & cheap.
1 Banana Sliced
A handful of sliced/chopped fresh mint
Bowl/ 1 Cup of Organic Fat Free French Vanilla Yogurt.. any flavor you'd like. I love Trader Joe's/ Stony field's kind.
A squirt or two of Trader Joe's Organic Midnight Moo Chocolate Syrup.. or any kind of FF Choc Syrup
(A tablespoon of ground flaxseed for fiber & Omega-3's if you wish, but not necessary.)

Combine together & sprinkle the mint shards on top!! Ah sooo good. You could even make it for a morning after breakfast & they'd be impressed!

This recipe came out of this thought process, haha: "Okay, I need to eat a fruit. But the only fruit I have is a banana. Hm, I don't like bananas that much lets make it taste better with yogurt!! Yeah! I haven't had any dairy today. Ohh, but I need some sweet! Ah, a squirt of chocolate syrup sounds good. Oh and I bought fresh mint yesterday!! That would be refreshing!!"

Haha, so I guess what they say is true: Invention comes from necessity. (And being really broke.) You guys should check out the health benefits of mint ( http://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/herbs-and-spices/health-benefits-of-mint.html) Its tastes good crushed in some green iced tea (or mojitos: ). Also shredded over many chocolate desserts as a pretty garnish but a refreshing flavor burst ( You like mint choc chip ice cream right??)....including shredded over the truffle brownies I made last night with raspberries & whipped cream, yum!!
