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. You won’t miss that gourmet ice cream, because you’ve made your own naturally gourmet pops!
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.
