Get double dipping with these creamy, so easy-to-make, even easier-to-eat lollies. Move over banana bread, this is the new way to use up your stash!
A deliciously creamy and slightly healthier treat than traditional ice cream, double dip these frozen banana lollies in chocolate and almond butter for an indulgent snack this summer.
Time: 5 mins to prepare, at least 5 hours freezing (or ovenight)
Makes: 4 lollies, but you can easily adjust to make as many or few as you like - why not make a big batch and keep them on hand in the freezer for when you need a treat?
- 2 medium bananas, ripe and peeled
- 75g dark chocolate
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- Salted Date Almond Butter
In just 5 simple steps, you’ll have the perfect homemade ice lolly!
Peel and halve your bananas, insert a lolly stick into each half and place in the freezer for 3 hours, or overnight.
2. Make chocolate sauce
Place a heatproof bowl over a small pan of boiling water, add the chocolate to melt slowly, then add the coconut oil to give it a slightly runnier texture.
Dip the frozen bananas directly into the bowl with the chocolate mixture to cover them in chocolatey goodness.
Return the chocolate covered bananas for at least 2 hours.
5. Decorate (or double dip!)
Drizzle Salted Date Almond Butter over your frozen banana lolly. It’s your choice whether you create a dainty pattern or just dunk the whole thing again. Whatever you choose, the result will be a delicious and healthy frozen treat!
If you’re making a big batch to keep in the freezer, once the chocolate is fully frozen, wrap the remaining lollies in freezer bags or clingfilm to protect them.
