Banana Ice Cream Bites- Dairy Free
A dairy free chocolate covered "ice cream" bite that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
-1 bar of dark chocolate
I used Green & Blacks
-1/4 cup raw almonds
-1/4 cup raw shredded unsweetened coconut
-1/2 cup almond or peanut butter
-1 tsp. coconut oil
or pot with a stainless steel bowl on top
-Measuring cups & spoons
-Coffee grinder or blender
I used a NutriBullet
Cut your banana into 1 inch pieces and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place in freezer for 15 min.
Using a butter knife, spread about 1 tsp. of almond butter or filling of choice on your banana pieces. Place in freezer for 30 min.
While bananas are freezing, add your almonds to a blender or coffee grinder and pulse a 2-3 times until almonds are crossly chopped.
Next, in a double boiler melt your coconut oil and chocolate on low heat (about 5 min).
Take bananas out of the freezer and using tooth picks, dip your banana pieces into the chocolate making sure to coat evenly.
Place chocolate covered banana pieces on the parchment lined cookie sheet and top with either shredded coconut, crushed almonds or whatever topping you'd like.
Place banana ice cream bites back into the freezer for about 2 hours depending on your freezer.
Store in freezer (just like ice cream) until ready to serve!
You can enjoy these banana ice cream bites frozen right out of the freezer or let them thaw for about 15-30 min for a soft serve texture.
