These tasty frozen treats are the perfect pick-me- up after a long school day. Not designed for the lunch pail but are definitely designed to pack a 1-2-3 of healthy food combinations. As, author Tara Milhem describes, “Frozen bananas couldn’t be a more simple or a more healthful snack. And imagine the additional benefits you’ll get from the antioxidant power of a raw chocolate coating, chewy dehydrated goji berries, and crunchy raw cacao.”
Here is the recipe for these delectable Super Food Banana Pops:
- 3 bananas
- 2- 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 2 drops liquid stevia
- 3 ounces water
- 1/4 cup raw cacao nibs
- 1/4 cup raw goji berries
Place a stick into 2 of the bananas and freeze until soft frozen.
Blend the other banana, cacao powder, stevia, and water into the blender, and blend until creamy, like chocolate syrup.
Dip the frozen banana into chocolate sauce and top with cacao nibs/goji berries. Enjoy!
Tara’s Tips: When frozen, bananas are the perfect ice cream substitute. They’re ultra-creamy and very satisfying. Dip them in your chocolate syrup and add any of a variety of toppings, including shredded coconut, chopped almonds or peanuts or other nuts, dehydrated cherries (chopped), blueberries, or raisins.
For a soft-serve ice cream with toppings, puree frozen bananas in the blender, spoon on your chocolate syrup, and add the toppings of your choice. You can even blend in a touch of coconut milk to pureed bananas for added creaminess.
