This is a treat that I love to make when I'm trying not to eat anything high in sugar or calories but I need something sweet at the end of the day.Freezing the bananas brings out a sweetness and taste where you can almost think you're enjoying ice cream. Well, at least I can!
Can you Eat Frozen Bananas?
My answer to this question is YES...as long as they're covered in chocolate! I like to make a whole tray of these banana bites and keep them stored in the freezer all summer long. That way I can have one or two every night when the rest of my family might be enjoying ice cream.
I know the kids would love them; especially if you get them involved with helping you make them. You can add chopped peanuts or shredded coconut too. There really is no wrong way to enjoy them!

Step 1 | How to Melt Chocolate
- Begin by placing the almond bark or chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and place the bowl in the microwave using the low setting and starting out in 30 seconds intervals.

- In just a few minutes you'll have perfectly beautiful melted chocolate for dipping.
