Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Ripe Bananas brown spots are a good thing!
  • Cake-Pop Sticks or Popsicle Sticks 1 per banana
  • 1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil Unrefined is definitely healthier and will impart a slight coconut taste.

Optional Toppings:

  • Crushed up Chocolate Sandwich Cookies/Oreos
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Chopped up Peanut Butter Cups/Reese’s
  • Chopped Walnuts

Instructions

  • Peel bananas carefully since they are ripe.
  • Cut off approximately 1 - 1½ inches from one end of the banana.
  • Stick each cake-pop/popsicle stick about ⅓ of the way through the cut end of the banana.
  • Freeze bananas for at least 3 hours (preferably overnight), left uncovered to prevent ice crystal formation.
  • Place each topping in a separate plate, ready for dipping.
  • Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a long glass that is microwave safe. The glass makes for easy dipping of the banana.
  • Melt the chocolate and oil mixture in the microwave for about 1 min - 1 ½ min, stopping halfway to mix.
  • This next part (applying the toppings) needs to be done quickly because the chocolate will harden almost instantly: Take bananas out of freezer, dip in chocolate (use a spoon to cover the entire banana if your glass isn’t tall enough), then quickly roll into toppings (using your hands or a spoon to help you apply the toppings). Enjoy!
