I don't really have any chocolate recipes on this blog yet. It's high time, friends. Let's stuff our faces.
Whenever these babies are in the fridge, I just can't stop myself. Well I can, really, but I don't want to. They're so simple they make me wanna CRY because I can legit make them in 5 minutes and then eat them immediately, or freeze them to make 'em like ice cream. I kid you not. The chocolate is orangey and silky against the creaminess of the banana, and taste excellent in quick succession.
Very quick succession.
But I'm sure they don't mind.
Mmm, summer continues to be delicious. Today the sea was so wild and beautifully moody, and I watched it stormily from my room as I sat on my ass and studied. I had this romantic vision of me going down to the beach across from my house with a cute sweater all pulled over my knuckles, a good book in my chipped-nail-varnish tumblr hands, and a thermos of hot black tea.
But lol I tried to go and they wouldn't let me go. I forgot we're not allowed to bring food in, because there's a restaurant on top :( :( And it was so hot, so I started sweating. A lot. And I had to study biology. A lot of that, too.
So I settled for staying at home. And eating these pops.
Frozen Chocolate-Orange Banana Pops
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons cacao
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Zest of one orange
Juice of half an orange
2 bananas, sliced in half horizontally and quartered
1. Mix all together in a bowl.
2. Dip bananas in beautiful mixture. Warning: the orange juice makes the chocolate go a little lumpy, but the flavour is worth it.
3. ROLL IN TOPPINGS! I enjoy using broken up walnuts, pecans, almonds, and raisins so it tastes like a fruit & nut ice cream. But desiccated coconut, coconut shavings, goji berries, cranberries, and really anything you want would probably taste awesome too!
*I often double, triple, or quadruple this recipe to make a biiig batch of banana pops :)
