10 Easy Steps To Frozen Chocolate Banana Coconut Bliss

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 11, 2010

Hello there!

Disclaimer: By reading this post you agree not to hold me responsible for unappetizing looking photos. I really did try my best. Sometimes bananas covered in chocolate, just photograph…shall we say…slightly unappetizing?

You were warned.

However, I could not keep this recipe from you because it was just so easy and delicious!

Step 1: Grab a banana.

The little black dress of fruit!

Step 2: Grab optional popsicle stick (see step 9).

IMG_6782

Step 3: Stick the optional stick into banana. If you don’t have a stick, wait patiently while your virtual friends do so. :whistle:

Step 4: Now comes the fun part. Take 1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips and 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil. Put on a plate and melt in the microwave for 45-60 seconds, stirring well until clumps are gone.

You will have something that looks wildly delicious.

Step 5: Take Banana and roll around in chocolate-coconut mixture. I could not find an easy way to do this, but maybe someone else can? I used my hands and got messy and just rolled it all around. I also used the spoon to scoop some chocolate over it. It wasn’t the best method, but it worked. Ideally, you would have a pot of melted chocolate to dip the bananas into, but for a single serving this worked!

Step 6: Hot mess ensues.

Step 7: Sprinkle it with coconut and pop it in the freezer for 2-4 hours.

Step 8: Wait patiently.

Decide that you must leave the house.

Swim 30 lengths at the pool. Tread water for 5 minutes.

Repeat a new mantra: ‘Chocolate. Banana. Coconut. Chocolate. Banana. Coconut.’

Step 9: Remove from freezer and take the first bite. Realize that the stick does not hold up the banana like you hoped. Toss stick and eat with hands. :biggrin:

Step 10: Chocolate craving defeated.

I’m off to watch Gossip Girl from last night. Have a great night!

Oh gosh. That brings me right back to several childhood vacations to the banana shack on Balboa Island (yes, there really was a banana shack there in real life and not just on Arrested Development…lol)! Chocolate-dipped frozen nanners are such a yummy summer treat.

Thanks for sharing, Angela!

Step 11: Get over the fact that the teenagers on the street corner are laughing at you because you look ridiculous eating a banana on a stick.

I fell in love with frozen chocolate covered bananas at Disney World a few years ago. Ever since, I’ve tried making them, but they’re always so messy! I love the little half bananas covered in dark chocolate in the freezer section of the grocery store. I forget what they’re called though…bunnies maybe? LOL can’t remember.

Here in Southern California we claim to have the ORIGINAL frozen banana stand. I used to live right down the street and I would ride my bike to get a big one double dipped in chocolate and then rolled in rainbow sprinkles and chopped nuts.

Here’s a secret I picked up from them: They insert TWO wooden popsicle sticks into the bottom of the banana while it is still in the peel. This helps the banana keep its structure and two sticks makes a sturdy handle. They then peel the banana, freeze, and then dip into the chocolate.

Here’s a picture: http://www.papawow.com/storage/P7050060.JPG?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1247430005122
Oh Goodness…I wish I still lived down the street.

Hi Angela…. I love frozen choc. covered banans, I made them frequently last summer, and am looking forward to it for this summer. For single servings, I use a brush (pastry, small grilling, etc.) to brush the chocolate on, it works really well!

I noticed you eat a lot of coconut-based products…are you aware that they contain mostly saturated fats and are therefore not really good?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 12, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Hi Mel, Coconut has been found to have a wide range of health benefits. The sat. fat derived from natural plant based sources does not have the same neg effects as sat fat from animal sources. Hope this helps!

Brownie May 12, 2010 at 5:19 pm

This looks so good. I love that you made it for one, I’m always looking for easy things to make small servings of. The pastry brush idea someone had above was genius.
P.S. – Keep up the good work! You are an inspiration to me as I am starting my own business here in Brooklyn…we’re not in production yet, but it’s getting close :-)

Chelsea Mizera May 13, 2010 at 10:12 pm

So i just tried this recipe, except i didn’t have the coconut oil and i used a frozen banana, worked really well!! the frozen banana makes the chocolate harden right away so its not very messy to make and you can eat it right away!!

Reply

Tara June 10, 2010 at 6:52 pm

These are so yummy! I freeze my bananas first, then pour melted chocolate chips on top and sprinkle coconut flakes on top. Only one side is coated but it’s a lot less messy! Love your site!

Danielle Joy :D August 31, 2010 at 2:20 pm

Last night I made this Chocolate Banana Coconut Bliss. After having rubbed the banana in the melted chocolate I used some raisins to make chocolate covered raisins with the little leftover chocolate. After I sprinkled the coconut onto the chocolate covered banana I used the leftover coconut that had fallen of the banana to put it on the chocolate covered raisins. Now that’s what I call resourceful! :D

Zahra February 6, 2013 at 6:41 pm

Suggestion to make mess free bananas, melt the chocolate with butter in a zip loc bag instead of a plate and insert the banana into it to cover and freeze wrapped. Or you could freeze the banana and snip off a corner of the ziploc bag after melting and drizzle chocolate on the banana quickly sprinkling with coconut, doing it on one side and then other side.

Hey Fiona, I use Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips. For bar chocolate, I use Green and Blacks Organic 70%. Hope this helps!
