During Summer there is nothing better then enjoying a frozen treat on a hot day and even better if it is guilt free.

During Summer there is nothing better then enjoying a frozen treat on a hot day and even better if it is guilt free. These banana pops are super easy to put together and a great recipe to make with little ones to teach them that you can have healthy frozen treats (see you later super market ice cream on a stick!).

If you want to keep these dairy free and low in sugar make the banana pops with our vegan chocolate dip recipe. If you prefer to keep it simple and low prep buy some dark chocolate and melt to use as the chocolate coating. We used 70% cocoa dark chocolate and also white chocolate as we ran out of cacao powder. The topping over the chocolate is made from nuts, seeds and dried fruit. It looks beautiful and adds a yummy crunch which is a great contrast to the gooey banana.

Ingredients: 

4 or 5 bananas – chop in half and cut off the sides to make into more of a square shape (see pic down the bottom).
8x sticks (use something stronger then a tooth pick as the bananas can be quite heavy and will slide off a tooth pick)

Vegan Chocolate dip:

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup coconut nectar (or any other sugar free sweetener eg raw maple syrup)

Nut topping:
choose any of the following and have 1 cup worth. 

Dried cranberries
Almond flakes
Walnuts
Macadamia nuts
Hazelnuts
Pumpkin seeds
Gogi berries
Cashews
