Pistachio & Dark Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana Pops

By Gracie Carroll

It might be surprising to see a banana recipe from me, but considering it’s been so hot out I just had to share this delicious summer treat, that doesn’t require any heat. To give you some context, eating bananas is not something that runs in my family, at least not on the Carroll side. Ever since I was a little kid, the texture of raw bananas has never been something I’ve been able to come to like. However, I do believe it’s possible to enjoy bananas when their raw texture cannot be detected. For example, in banana bread or even an old-school banana popsicle from the corner shop.

Last summer, everything changed when a couple of dairy-free friends of mine decided to make frozen banana pops for everyone while staying at the Carroll Cottage for a weekend. I was amazed to find that freezing bananas transforms them into a delectable ice-cream-like texture that tastes especially good when smothered in dark chocolate, obviously.

This summer I was eager to try them again, but with a bit of a twist to keep things cool in the kitchen. Evidently, the first thing I had to figure out was how to get the dark chocolate onto the banana without having to melt it first. The solution I found was to a use a yummy dark chocolate spread that could be used straight out of the jar. To take them to the next level, I sprinkled my favourite Roasted & Salted Wonderful Pistachios over the dark chocolate covered bananas to add some crunch and additional pop of flavour.

This resulted in a super easy recipe for Pistachio and Dark Chocolate Covered Banana Pops that you MUST try if you: 1. Love frozen desserts, 2. Enjoy the taste of bananas, dark chocolate and pistachios, especially all together and 3. Want an easy way to cool down after a hot day. See below for how to make them!
