Chocolate Banana Lollies

Now for me ice lollies are a must in this hot weather, perfect what ever the time of day!

Especially when these beauties are homemade and jam-packed full of good ingredients.

Ingredients:
Makes 4 lollies
3 bananas
½ cup milk (almond/whole milk/coconut)

Chocolate coating:
3 tbsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil
3 tbsp. raw cacao powder
2 tsp. sweetener (honey/maple syrup)
2 tbsp. roasted hazelnuts (blended into pieces)
pinch of salt

Directions:

Place the bananas and milk into a blender, whizz till smooth.
Add the mixture to lolly moulds and insert the wooden sticks.
Let them set in the freezer overnight.

Work in progress

For the chocolate coating:

Melt all the ingredients together.
To avoid burning melt ingredients in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water on a hob.
Once mixed together, take lollies from the freezer and remove from the moulds.
Dip the lollies in the melted chocolate and transfer to a tray lined with baking paper.

Ready to freeze
Allow to set in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Then apply another layer of chocolate.
Set in the freezer for another hour, or if you really can’t wait, grab and enjoy outside!

Hazelnuts can be substituted for different nuts or try with swapping the banana for mango or berries for other fruity flavours!
