This parfait is made even more delicious with the addition of Clif Bars! It is perfect as a post workout snack, or whenever you want a sweet healthy treat!
Disclosure: I received sample products to review from Clif Bar.
Guys! I have started taking weight lifting classes!!
What? Scrawny old me? Me whose nickname was "Boney-McBonebone Von Bones-a-lot" because I have always been so skinny?
Well now I don't want to be known as the "skinny girl" (not that I ever really wanted to be known as that). I want to be known as being strong. And my shaky sore muscles will be an indicator that I am making progress!!
But after every weight lifting class, I always find myself reaching for a Clif Bar. With all the flavors they have out there, everyone can find something they like. They even have a Spiced Pumpkin Pie flavor for the fall!
So when I got this package of all new Clif Trail Mix Bars, I was more than happy! My favorite thing about the new five flavors? Pretty much all of them have chocolate in them! AND they are gluten free, which means you can share them with pretty much everyone! Or, you know, not.
My personal favorite was the Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond Bar, while my boyfriend really liked the Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Raspberry Bar. They are actually like you took a handful of trail mix and compressed it into a bar. No mess and all yum!
And if you didn't want to just eat them on their own, putting them in this super easy and super healthy parfait is one of my favorite ways to get your healthy dose of Clif Bars!
This is what I have been having as a post workout snack for the past couple of days, and I have been loving every bite! The peanut butter helps maximize muscle repair and recovery, the potassium in the bananas will replenish the potassium reserves that are running low after a good workout, and the Clif Bars? Well, they are just the healthy cherry atop the healthy cake so to speak!
This parfait paired with my weight lifting classes is sure to get me ready for a new week of teaching. Don't you think?
Clif Bar Parfait
What you'll need:
- 1 banana, cut into coins and frozen
- 1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 Clif Bar, cut into chunks
- In a food processor*, pulse the banana, peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.
- Pour into a bowl and top with the Clif Bar.
*My blender doesn't do a very good job at blending the banana and peanut butter. People have a lot of success with this Blendtec Total Blender, but if you don't want to spend a ton of money, I use this food processor.
