This frozen treat is super refreshing on a hot day. Bananas are an amazing fruit that actually don’t freeze solid and keep their creamy texture even when frozen! They make a perfect substitute for a popsicle and are even better when dipped in chocolate with your favourite toppings. Just remember to freeze your bananas ahead of time WITHOUT the peel!
Insert stick into banana pieces half way through and place on a tray. Freeze for 2 to 4 hours or until solid.
When bananas are frozen, melt chocolate in a cup in the microwave. Melt for 1 minute, stir, and then repeat for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Make sure to not microwave for longer as it can burn the chocolate and make it clumpy!
Dip your bananas into melted chocolate, shake off any excess, and then dip into your desired toppings. You can also use a plastic bag to drizzle the chocolate onto bananas. Simply pour chocolate into a plastic bag, and make a small snip on one corner. Use the bag to drizzle chocolate over bananas and sprinkle with toppings.
Place bananas back onto the tray. Enjoy right away or store in freezer for 1 week.
Chocolate chips do not melt well for this recipe. Look for a brick of baking chocolate for best results.
If you do not have a microwave, melt chocolate by bringing a pot of water to a boil, and placing a metal mixing bowl on top of the boiling water with the chopped chocolate. Stir until melted. Pour chocolate into a cup to dip.
