Summer is here (supposedly) and that means yummy frozen treats like ice cream and popsicles are well on their way. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good ice cream cone on a hot summer night but it’s not realistic for me to eat that 2 times per week. These chocolate dipped frozen banana’s used to be a staple in my household growing up. My sisters and I would always be making these all year with or without the chocolate and we felt like we were getting a special treat when really we were just having a piece of fruit (jokes on us!) Store a bag of these in your freezer and you’ll be set the next time you have that sweet craving.
Prep Time – 10 minutes
Freeze Time – 30 minutes
Servings – 6
- 3 ripe banana’s
- 1/2 cup 70-80% dark chocolate (melted)
- shredded coconut
- chopped nuts
- In a double boiler bring an inch of water to a boil and put chocolate in the top insert. Stir constantly until chocolate has melted.
- Cut banana’s in half and skewer all of them with a popsicle stick half way through. Line a cooking sheet with wax paper and start dipping the banana’s in the chocolate. Shake off the excess and place on the wax paper to set.
- If desired, dip the bananas with toppings such as crushed peanuts and coconut. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes and then store in a sealed tight container and leave in the freezer.
