Banana and chocolate go so well together. Think of those yummy banana splits with warm, gooey fudge or chocolate-dipped frozen bananas (that really brings me back to my childhood)! Since the two ingredients are made for each other, I came up with a healthy recipe that’s just as delicious as a dessert. Move on over chocolate cake!

Chocolate Banana Popsicles

Makes: 10

Ingredients

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • 1 cup coconut yogurt (or vanilla, or plain plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (I recommend Grade B as it has a more pronounced flavor and is lower in sugar)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons dark chocolate (or milk chocolate)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (add almonds and mixed nuts for variety!)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoons sea salt
  • Special equipment: popsicle molds and sticks

Directions

  1. Combine bananas, yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla extract into the blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 1 hour. Then add popsicle sticks and continue freezing overnight.
  3. Melt the chocolate over low heat.* (If you don’t want to melt a bar of chocolate, use a sugar-free chocolate syrup instead.)
  4. Set aside the chocolate and let it cool. You do not want to pour the chocolate on the popsicles when it’s too hot.
  5. Drizzle the chocolate over the popsicles and sprinkle with crushed walnuts, coconut flakes, and a pinch of sea salt.
  6. Place the popsicles back into freezer for about 2 hours so that the chocolate will harden.
  7. When ready to eat, run mold under warm water to help easily remove.

*If you are in a hurry and don’t have the time to drizzle the chocolate, combine it with the walnuts, coconut flakes, and sea salt into mixture.
