A healthy snack everyone will enjoy

If your kids are anything like ours, they come home from school starving and looking for any snacks they can get their hands on. Even with winter coming in, one of the first things they ask for is ice cream. We have the perfect healthier alternative that will definitely fix their sweet craving! These frozen chocolate bananas are easy to whip up and a delicious alternative to many other sugar-filled snacks.

Here's how to make them:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 4 wooden skewers or popsicle sticks
  • 1/4 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Toppings of your choice (we used coconut, roasted pecans and sprinkles)

Peel and slice the bananas in half. Stick a skewer in each half of the banana. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring halfway through, until melted. Using a spoon, coat each banana in chocolate. Sprinkle with your favorite toppings. Freeze for 1-2 hours, or make a large batch and store them in an airtight container for later!

These frozen chocolate bananas are also great for dessert in place of unhealthy ice cream or popsicles! You can double or triple this recipe to make a large batch and keep them in the freezer to have on hand when the chocolate craving strikes. Psst... you should also try our banana peanut butter ice cream or frozen banana dream bites!
