Trader's Joe's Gone Bananas Copycat Recipe: This Easy Frozen Chocolate Treat Is the Perfect Healthy Snack or Dessert

"Just three ingredients to make delicious homemade frozen treats this afternoon!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "I like to use the highest cacao percentage chocolate chips that I can find on sale. Read those ingredient labels! If you’re looking for a lower-sugar option, Lily’s chocolate chips sweetened with Stevia will work, too."

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours, 45 minutes


Here's how to make it: 

Gather your ingredients. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Peel and slice your bananas into 1-inch-thick pieces. Place your banana slices onto your prepared baking sheet and freeze until very firm, about 2 hours.

Once bananas are frozen solid, melt your chocolate chips and coconut oil together over a double boiler, stirring constantly until smooth and creamy. (You can melt the chocolate chips in the microwave if you prefer.)

Remove bananas from the freezer. Using a fork, sharp knife or tongs, very carefully dip each banana slice into your melted chocolate, until evenly coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl, then return your chocolate banana slices back onto their sheet pan. The chocolate should set almost immediately since the banana slices are frozen.

Set your chocolate covered bananas back into the freezer for 20 minutes to ensure they are completely frozen solid. Once they are completely set, serve immediately. You can store any remaining chocolate covered frozen banana slices in an airtight container or zip-lock bag in your freezer for up to two weeks. Makes four to six snack servings.
