Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cut the bananas in half and carefully insert one popsicle stick (or straw) in bottom of each banana. Place each banana on a tray that is lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer.
  2. Keep in the freezer until they are frozen, a couple hours.
  3. While the bananas are freezing, mix the chocolate dip. Whisk until all the ingredients are smooth. This can sit on the counter while you wait for your bananas to finish freezing.
  4. Once your bananas are frozen take them out of the freezer. Pour the Chocolate Dip into a mug or large measuring cup (like this). Dip each banana into the chocolate dip. When the coconut oil comes into contact with the frozen banana it will cause the chocolate dip to instantly harden creating a chocolate shell. Pretty awesome chemistry. If you desire toppings, now is the time to sprinkle nuts or shredded coconut over the chocolate.
  5. Lay your bananas on the parchment paper once the chocolate hardens.
  6. Keep banana pops frozen.
  7. Note: If you desire a thick chocolate shell, follow the steps above, don't add extra toppings just yet. Place the chocolate bananas back in the freezer, freeze. Remove from the freezer and repeat with the dipping process, add toppings as desired.
