Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 Teaspoon light whipped cream cheese
  • 16 mini chocolate chips
  • 8 blueberries, halved
  • 16 strawberries, tips cut off and sliced into small rounds

Directions

Cut each banana into about 6-inch pieces across, then slice in half on an angle so that you have one flat side and one angled side. You should have 8 pieces from each banana.

Place the cream cheese into a plastic sandwich bag and cut off one corner of plastic with scissors to create a mini piping bag.

Place banana slices flat-side down with the angle side facing you.

Pipe 2 small dots of cream cheese onto the front of the angle to create 2 eyes. Place 1 mini chocolate chip into each dot.

Place a blueberry, sliced-side down, onto the banana to create a nose.

Pipe 2 small dots of cream cheese onto the tops of the bananas pieces and press the strawberry tips to create ears.
