Banana Lollipops

Bananas are rich in carbohydrates and natural sugars which give the body a much-needed energy boost at half time. Agave sugar has a lower glycemic index than traditional sugar which means energy is released slower, avoiding the highs and lows that a sugar based energy snack can cause. Peanut butter and nuts are an excellent source of protein which ensures that the body's muscles are being fed the correct nutrients they need during sport

Directions

Microwave the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds until melted. Peel the bananas and insert a stick into one end so that they resemble an ice pop

Dip the banana in the melted peanut butter until fully coated. Once the banana is coated in the peanut butter, roll it in the mixed nuts and then place it in the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen transfer them to a cool bag and eat them within 1-2 hours.
