Chocolate Covered Bananas

The other day I made some chocolate covered bananas just to have on hand as a snack. Usually I'm not the biggest fan of bananas. Most of them are high in sugar, very starchy and low in minerals. Even though it's a raw food, its profile matches the exact types of foods we should be moving away from, namely high sugar and low minerals. But be that as it may, they do contain potassium and really do a great job masking the flavor of greens in green smoothies.

In any event I went ahead and made these and they really are quite tasty. The recipe is simple:

For the chocolate sauce
Coconut oil
Cacao powder
Cacao butter (optional)
Dried coconut flakes (optional)

Simply cut the bananas in half and put some Popsicle sticks in them. Then mix together the above ingredients into a bowl until you get the right consistency and sweetness. Then use a knife and spread the bananas with your chocolate sauce. Put them into the freezer and you have your snack. Kids will love these and they're filling too. So even though they are hybridized they are still a fun tasty treat that you can snack on when you have sweet cravings.
