Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Banana Theme Week.

Today's tasty Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips from Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA) were embedded in a gluten free version  of homemade banana bread—made with mashed bananas, banana flour, spices, nuts and no added sugar.

Other items sampled today included:
  • A Cacao Fruit Smoothie from Dandelion Chocolate (San Francisco, CA)
  • Chocolate Horchata from Dandelion Chocolate (San Francisco, CA)
  • A gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip and cranberry cookie
  • Snow Monkey Cinnamon Superfood Ice Treat. This dairy-free frozen dessert contained 21 grams of protein; and the first ingredient listed was banana puree. (It did not contain any chocolate.)
And, if you're thinking, that's a lot of sugar. You're right. It was.
