I have a major sweet tooth, which has lead me to bake many cakes & sweet treats as a hobby. However with my recent lifestyle change addressing mine and my children’s health. I wanted to be able to satisfy those sweet pangs for something of a sugary kind. Here is a quick and easy recipe that my family and I have enjoyed during the school week & weekend. The banana lollipops are a great one to get the children making too. They can be as creative as they want.
“Raw bananas are 75% water, 23% carbohydrates, including 12% sugars, 1% protein and 0.3% fat, providing 89 Calories (kcal) per 100 gram amount (table). Bananas are an excellent source (20% or more of the Daily Value, DV) of vitamin B6 (31% DV) and contain moderate amounts of manganese (13% DV), vitamin C and dietary fiber (10% DV each, table). Individuals with a latex allergy may experience a reaction to bananas.” –Wiki.
- 2 Bananas
- Half a bar of green and blacks chocolate (I used butterscotch as it what we had in) or dark chocolate would work well with this too.
- Lollipop sticks
- Dried cherries (topping)
- Chopped almonds (I`m using these for toppings but you can be creative and use and nuts or fruits to garnish)
- Place the chocolate into a bowl and melt over a pan of simmering water,
- Once the chocolate is melted, peel and chopped the bananas in half and gently push the lollipop sticks into them and put them onto a plate
- Spoon the melted chocolate onto the bananas, add your choice of toppings, pop them on a lined baking tray to go into the fridge to set for 5/10 minutes then enjoy.
