banana lollipops!

There’s always money in the banana stand! I recently went to an Arrested Development themed party. I dressed as Rita, and I brought, what else? Bananas on a stick! These are an awesome and easy treat for Summer, party or not!

I wish I had some better pictures, but they go fast. : )

Nutrition – High in sugar, but natural!

Makes – around 45 lollipops

You Need –

6 YELLOW Bananas
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup almond milk
1 TB cinnamon
2 bags of semi sweet chocolate chips, chunks, whatever ya got to melt.
Lollipop sticks
Parchment paper

Optional – toasted coconut or crushed nuts to roll them in.

What to do –

Cut the bananas in to 1″ pieces, setting the ends or smaller circles aside for morning cereal.

Mix milks and cinnamon in a bowl and soak chunks for 5 minutes. One by one, push lollipop sticks halfway in to the banana coins and lay on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and store in freezer for at least 2 hours. Keep the leftover infused banana milk to use on your cereal. (Its going to be the best cereal ever. I used it with Grape Nuts)

Once the bananas are frozen, melt your chocolate in a double boiler (I did mine in 4 batches bc the chocolate starts to harden quickly.) dip bananas and place back on parchment and get them back in the freezer. If you are rolling them in something else, do that after each dip. Let freeze another 2 hours and voila! Delicious, cold and creamy lollipops at the ready. A really great dessert fix, and fun for kids!
