Tempted by those chocolate covered ice cream pops every time you walk through the frozen food aisle? Here is your solution, and they couldn’t be easier to make! Creamy and sweet frozen bananas dipped in a raw chocolate shell, loaded with all of your favorite superfood toppings. A really great option for children as well -something they can help make!
- 3 Bananas, halved & frozen
- ⅓ cup Coconut Oil
- ⅓ cup cacao powder
- 3 tbsp Organic Maple Syrup
- Superfoods to top
- Peel and cut your bananas in half. Carefully add a stick and freeze on parchment for a few hours or overnight.
- In a small mug or bowl, melt your coconut oil and mix in the cacao powder till fully combined. Mix in your maple syrup or sweetener of choice (optional).
- The next step takes some quick hands, you want to dip and coat each banana pop as quickly and evenly as possibly — while coating them before the mixture hardens into a shell. So setting out your toppings ahead of time is vital for them to stick properly.
- Cover with your favorite superfoods, you can go crazy with combos!
I used cacao and mesquite powder, goji berries, hemp seeds and mulberries. These are always amazing with an almond butter drizzle or cashew cream coating.
