By: Joel Luedke

Everyone enjoys a cheat day (well most people do) so why not try and make it as healthy as you possibly can?  That's what we tried to help out with this weeks Friday Food.  You can obviously customize this how you want with flavors and even the fruit.  Enjoy.

-7 oz. Greek Yogurt
-1/2 scoop protein (vanilla or your choice)
-1 tbsp vanilla extract
-1/2 caramel peanut protein bar (or your choice)
-1 medium/large sized banana
-Optional: 3 chopped/diced strawberries or bananas

Cooking Directions:
1. Place the protein bar in the freezer or refrigerator.
2. In a bowl, mix Greek yogurt, protein powder, and vanilla extract.  Whip until completely smooth.
3. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 1.5-2 hours or until desired firmness is reached.
4. Slice a banana in half vertically and place in a bowel.
5. Place protein bar in blender and pulse until it breaks into chunks.
6. Remove the ice cream from the freezer.  Using an ice cream scoop, dig out the ice cream and place on top of the cut banana.
7. Sprinkle with the broken chunks of the candy bar and, if desired, fresh fruit.
8. Enjoy.
