Healthy Chocolate Pops!

Last night, I wanted a healthier treat that included chocolate. Was peeling 10 pounds of bananas for my workshops this week (yup, I make a lot of smoothies for my seniors!) and had an idea!

 

I got a bamboo skewer, stuck it in a banana (so far so good!). Melted a few squares of dark chocolate and dipped the banana in the melted chcolate. Then I wanted some texture. Looked in the cabinet and found my unsweetened shredded coconut! Sprinkled it on and put in freezer for a few hours.

This afternoon, I had my treat and it was delicious!!  Haven't yet mastered the art of putting melted chocolate on smoothly so you don't get a picture of the finished product/

Ingredients:

2 bananas, 4 skewers, 4-6 squares dark chocolate, unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

Directions:

Break banana in half.

Melt dark chocolate in double boiler

Dip banana halves in chocolate, coating banana evenly

Sprinkle with coconut (optional)

Put on plate and in freezer

Wait a few hours and enjoy!
