These chocolate covered frozen bananas are a quick no bake dessert made with three ingredients, so easy that the kids can help make it! Great to cool you down on a hot summer night.
Okay who doesn’t love a good popsicle?? But now a popsicle that is creamy like ice cream, covered in chocolate, AND healthy? Now that is a home run in my book. These chocolate covered frozen bananas are SO easy to make and they are the perfect way to cool down on a hot day because you don’t even need to turn on your oven!
If you are needing all the ways you can to beat the heat, also check out my no bake chocolate fudge cookie bars, my no bake fruit tart (so refreshing in the summer!), and DEFINITELY don’t miss my no bake key lime pie bars (Neil’s all time favorite!), or my mini mango cheesecakes!
Let’s Make Some Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas!
Really not much to tell with this one. Start with bananas that are at yourpreferred ripeness. There is no “right” bannaa here. If you like them a little green, use that, if you prefer some brown spots (they will be a little sweeter this way) wait until they ripen more!
Melting chocolate is tricky. Because you need it to melt but can’t let it burn. You can use a double boiler method on the stove top but tbh I am just way too lazy for that. So I normally microwave mine. Just start on a low temp, check VERY often, and this will help you not burn it!
Coconut oil – you can probably go without it here, it just makes the chocolate a little smoother and easier for dipping. Also adds some great healthy fats to the dish too! But it is not a deal breaker if you don’t have it.
Freezing the pops before dipping helps the chocolate solidify faster and stay where you want it. So I definitely recommend. BUT it does mean you need to be quick on your toppings! I think the ones with sprinkles were my fave 🙂
That is about it – enjoy your nanners!
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- Popsicle sticks
- a microwave safe bowl
- a cookie sheet
- parchment paper
- room in your freezer (sometimes this is the hardest part for me :P)
