SUPERFOOD BANANA POPS
4 or 5 bananas – chop in half and cut off the sides to make into more of a square shape (see picture)
8x sticks (use ice block sticks or skewers, you need something stronger than a tooth pick as the bananas can be quite heavy)
Choose any of the following, you need 1 cup worth.
- Cut bananas in half and skewer with a wooden stick. Place bananas onto non-stick paper on a baking tray and put into the freezer.
- If you're making a fruit and nut topping, place dried fruit, nuts and seeds into a blender or food processor and gently pulse until you have smaller pieces. Place into a bowl.
- If you are making the vegan chocolate dip gently melt coconut oil in a pan over a low heat on stove top, take off heat and stir in cacao powder and the sweetener. Put the chocolate dip onto a plate so it makes it easy to roll the bananas in.
- Take bananas out of the freezer – roll each banana in the chocolate dip and place back on baking tray. Sprinkle with the nut topping or with your choice of superfoods. Repeat with each banana and then place back into the freezer until chocolate has hardened.
These can be stored in the freezer or fridge. If you don’t want the bananas to be rock hard take them out after a few hours in the freezer and leave them to soften slightly in the fridge.
