    About this recipe: These frozen treats are gluten-free, vegan-friendly and super-delicious! Frozen bananas are enrobed in a high-quality dark chocolate and then rolled in roasted hazelnuts. They are packed full of potassium, fibre, monounsaturated fats, phytochemicals and antioxidants. Enjoy as a dessert or snack.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 7 ice-lollies

    • 3 1/2 medium-size ripe bananas, peeled, top and tailed and cut in half
    • 150g dark chocolate
    • 100g roasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
    • 7 lollipop sticks

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:2min  ›  Extra time:1day freezing  ›  Ready in:1day17min 

    1. Push a lollipop stick halfway into a piece of banana. Repeat with the remaining bananas and lollipop sticks.
    2. Arrange the bananas onto a tray, leaving spaces between them. Freeze for 24 hours.
    3. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Turn the heat down to low and keep the double boiler going whilst you move onto step 4.
    4. Using a spoon, spoon the chocolate over one frozen banana, shake to remove the excess chocolate and immediately roll into the chopped nuts. The chocolate will set pretty fast, so work quickly.
    5. Place onto a piece of greaseproof paper and repeat. Once they're all set, you can freeze them or enjoy them immediately.

    Note

    If freezing, allow the ice-lollies to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before enjoying.
