Replace 1 of the bananas with 1/3 cup of the nut or seed butter of your choice (my favorites are peanut butter or tahini).

Turn it into a more traditional dessert with unsweetened chocolate chips.

Make it a flavor explosion by adding nuts, dried fruit, and spices. My favorite spice combination is turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, and black pepper!
