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/
