Frozen Banana Dark Chocolate Lollies

As if I don't eat enough bananas as it is, I've only gone and made a snack that's completely centered around them. Whether you're using bananas that are past their best days or using fresh bananas, these lollies are a healthy, refreshing snack the kids are sure to love this summer. This is another way of getting them to eat more fruit. Let's not stop there, apart from me of I know a few adults that over-indulge in these delicious little numbers when that chocolate craving kicks in. But remember, once they are ready and out of the freezer, do not leave them standing too long as they start to 'sweat' very quickly. With how tasty they are, I guarantee they will be gone in a matter of minutes.


Prep and cooking time: 15-20 mins 

What you need:

3 bananas
Melted and cooled dark chocolate
Different types of sprinkles to decorate
4 wooden lolly sticks (I didn't have any left so I used wooden steak sticks instead)


Method:

  1. Cut peeled bananas in half and freeze them. 
  2. Once frozen, poke wooden stick into bananas to make lollies. 
  3. Coat the bananas with melted dark chocolate and use sprinkles to decorate. 
  4. Wrap them in plastic or cling film then place in freezer.
  5. Enjoy when the chocolate has frozen onto the banana.


An easy & healthy way to put a smile on the kids' faces this summer.
