    Frozen chocolate bananas sprinkled with almonds.

    When you have small children at home like me, it’s very handy to have bananas around the house all the time. My children like to put a banana in their morning cereal and it makes a very handy snack whenever they are hungry.

    They also love my Banana Bread but their favorite banana “treats” are these Frozen Chocolate Bananas.

    When it comes to quick desserts, I rely on easy dessert recipes like this and Chocolate Covered Strawberries. They are my go-to treats for my children that I can make quickly within half an hour.

    After sharing many ice cream recipes, I thought it’s time to share some frozen dessert recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker. I highly recommend this treat for your summer parties, children’s play dates, or just simply a guilty pleasure for anyone. Enjoy!

    Servings: 8 frozen chocolate bananas
    Author: Nami
    • 4 ripe but firm bananas
    • 8.8 oz dark chocolate chips (8.8 oz = 250 g) (or semisweet chocolate)
    • 1 Tbsp neutral-flavored oil (vegetable, canola, etc) (optional – I don’t usually need it)
    • 2 handfuls almonds
    1. Gather all the ingredients.

    2. Line a toaster oven tray with aluminum foil and toast the almonds in a toaster oven.

    4. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the bananas in half, insert a Popsicle stick into each half, and then peel bananas. Place them on the baking sheet.

    5. Cut the chocolate into small pieces (so it melts easily) if you are not using chocolate chips. Put the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and add vegetable oil (to make the chocolate texture smooth, but I normally skip). Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring with a spoon in between each heating. The chocolate pieces might look they are not melted but when you stir, they can be already super soft. Be careful not to overheat; when it burns you can’t use the chocolate anymore.

    6. Roll each banana in the melted chocolate and use a spoon to pour the chocolate over the banana to coat. Then immediately sprinkle almonds onto chocolate before it sets.

    7. Freeze chocolate bananas for 30 minutes.
