Friday! Woo!

Thankfully this week seemed to go by a bit quicker than last week did. The weekends still seem to go by too quickly, but whoa is life right?

But since it is Friday, that means it’s time to get strange.

I have so many shocking things to share with you guys today.

And I say that with the utmost amount of sarcasm.

My #strangebutgood contribution is anything, but a surprise.

Look! It’s another dip/spread concoction.
Shocker I know.

I had a bunch of banana’s go super ripe on me super quick. I hate when that happens.

I don’t have time to go to the store every few days to get banana’s (because honestly I have to have at least one banana a day) so I try to buy greener ones so they have time to ripen. But sometimes with the weather and the humidity in the apartment, they just ripen faster than I expect.  I freeze some, but others I like to make banana mash dips with.

I’ve made banana/nut butter spreads and sometimes just plain banana mash, but I decided to get a bit creative one morning when creating a new sandwich topper and filling.

Thus the creation of Banana Cream Cheese.

Just another simple mix.


– 2 tbsp cream cheese

– 1/2 very ripe banana

– 2-5 drops vanilla SweetLeaf drops


– Place ingredients in small blender/mixer – mix until well blended

I first topped a simple piece of Silver Hills Bakery Hemptation toast with it and sprinkled a little cinnamon on top.
Because honestly, cinnamon makes everything better.

Still obsessed with this bread by the way.

I love thick breads.

Next I decided to amp up the cream cheese spread and add a little protein powder to it.

Because again, I add protein powder to everything.

Protein Banana Cream Cheese Sandwich

Staying classy, eating in the car, but look at that up close ooey gooey cream cheese sandwich goodness.

I’m clearly excited about it.

It was early, I was tired, this is what happens.

I know this is a simple little dip, but I seriously love just mixing random things together. Keeps things interesting.

This probably would be amazing on top of my latest apple pie spice plantain bread.

In case you missed it. You should probably go check that out.

What do you do with your ripe banana’s? Freeze? Bake?
