Move over peanut butter, sunflower butter is having a moment. Sunflower butter is rich in vitamin E, which helps balance cholesterol and fight free-radical damage. It is also rich in magnesium, which helps promote quality sleep, ease muscle pain and spasms, and improve digestion. Unlike peanut butter, sunflower butter is not processed and does not typically contain sugar or hydrogenated oils. Goji berries are a superfood that has been used in Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years — they are fat-free, low in calories, and high in fiber and antioxidants. They also promote longevity. The sun really is shining down on this recipe.

1 sliced organic banana
1 cup organic sunflower seed butter
1 cup goji berries

 Cover banana slices with thin layer of sunflower butter. Then combine slices to make a sandwich. Add small scoop of sunflower butter on top of banana sandwich and garnish with goji berries. Place in freezer for 20 minutes. Serves two.
