I don’t think I can call this a recipe, it’s really just the assembly instructions for these little Frozen Choc Banana Bites that seem to disappear from the freezer faster than I can make them (hint, make a double batch). I made them a lot on our recent adventure around Australia, something cold and sweet for those hot afternoons when we all just felt like ice cream. We’d seek respite from the blistering sun in our air-conditioned RV, to eat these and do puzzles on the floor and plan for tomorrow only. Goodness we miss it. These tick all the ice cream craving boxes, plus there’s some fibre, protein, potassium, vitamin B6 and healthy fats in there too, they’re dairy free and there’s no added sugar.
The assembly instructions go something like this… slice up some banana, approx. 1cm thick, then sandwich a teaspoon of nut butter between two slices and place on a flat baking tray that can then go in the freezer for 2-hours. I prefer to dip them in carob instead of chocolate – I’ve spoken about why I prefer carob for kids here. You can make up a batch of my Minty Carob Bears mix (omitting the additional nut butter and mint) or simply melt some good quality chocolate and allow it to come to room temperature. Remove your banana sandwiches from the freezer and dip them in your chocolate mix to coat, then place them back on the tray. You might find they need more than one dip, like I did, so return them to the freezer for 10-minutes and then repeat the dipping process. Any excess chocolate can be drizzled over the top or eaten straight from the bowl.
