Time to ditch the shop bought ice lollies and make these healthier but yet still totally delicious versions instead!


And between us these frozen bananas dipped in chocolate are one of the easiest treats to make. This recipe combines the natural sweetness of bananas with the rich taste of chocolate, creating a perfect snack for hot summer days and the addition of the peanut butter takes them to the next level! Here we go: 



- 4 ripe bananas
- A 250g bar of dark chocolate, or a bag of chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoon of  coconut oil and 4 tablespoons of peanut butter 
- Optional toppings: chopped nuts, sprinkles, shredded coconut


Prepare the Bananas
1. Peel the bananas and cut them in half.
2. Insert a skewer into each banana half.
3. Place the banana halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
4. Freeze the bananas for at least 2 hours or until firm.

 Melt the next layer
1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
2. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.

3. Do the same with the peanut butter and the remaining table spoon of coconut oil. 

Dip the Bananas
1. Remove the frozen bananas from the freezer.
2. Dip each banana into the peanut butter, then the chopped nuts and then the melted chocolate, ensuring it is fully coated.
3. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off, then place the dipped bananas back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Final Freeze
1. Return the chocolate-dipped bananas to the freezer.
2. Freeze for an additional 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until the chocolate is set.

1. Once the chocolate is set, remove the bananas from the freezer.
2. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one week.

- For an extra smooth chocolate coating, use high-quality chocolate.
- Experiment with different toppings to find your favourite combination.
- For a healthier version, use dark chocolate with a high cocoa percentage.
