REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!
I needed a fun snack for the family, and I’m just about out of all of my flours. I hate when that happens. Luckily, I had a huge stash of frozen bananas. Way more than I needed for this weeks smoothies. It’s so hot lately, so a frozen treat seemed like a great idea. I like to make treats for the family that compare to the treats they see in the store. They see fudge covered ice cream pops, and they want them. By making them myself, I can used ingredients that I feel good about, but still they don’t feel like they’re missing out. It takes a little more of my time, but it’s so worth it to me.
1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (check the ingredients)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2 Tbsp coconut milk
2 Tbsp coconut oil
Directions: Puree the bananas, coconut milk, and vanilla. Pour mixture into popsicle molds (about 6-8 depending on the size of the mold). Put the molds in the freezer for at least 12 hours. It needs to freeze completely. In a saucepan, heat chocolate chips, coconut milk, and coconut oil very slowly. You don’t want it to burn. Once it’s all melted, thoroughly, take banana cream pops one at a time and coat with the chocolate. Just spoon it over until it’s all coated. Set on a parchment or foil covered plate and return to the freezer. Continue with the remaining pops, coating them with chocolate, and returning to the freezer. They’re ready after just a few minutes. Enjoy!
