Peanut Yogurt Banana Chocolate Clusters
We are always looking for new frozen (healthy-ish) treats over the summer for our kids. Homemade ice cream is excellent, as are ice cream bars and popsicles, but we love simple recipes that take up to 15 minutes of active time to whip up during a busy week. This year fruit yogurt clusters had a real viral moment, so we had to try it ourselves too. We choose to make a banana yogurt cluster since our kids love bananas, and we always have them at home. Banana goes excellent with peanuts, so you can also find salted roasted peanuts and creamy butter in this recipe. This is such an effortless frozen treat, perfect for any summer day.
