Yield: 8 Frozen Banana Pops
- 4 bananas
- 2 really ripe avocados
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- Crushed nuts of your choice
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Chocolate chips
For frozen bananas:
Cut bananas in half and insert popsicle sticks into the flat end. Line on parchment covered baking sheet and freeze.
For chocolate avocado pudding:
Cut avocado in half and remove the seed. Scoop out the inside of the avocado into a food processor. Add the maple syrup and cocoa and continue to blend together until it’s all smooth.
Take frozen banana pop and roll in chocolate pudding, then roll in any or all of the toppings, if you like.
The chocolate-avo pudding can be served on its own for dessert or snack.
Instead of chocolate pudding, you can also roll in strawberry flavored apple sauce then shredded coconut, OR almond butter then roll in finely minced dried fruit.
