Do you remember when the ice cream truck would drive around your neighborhood as a kid? As soon as I heard that music, I would drop whatever I was doing and chase that damn van down the street. Bomb pops, dreamsicles, push pops, Disney characters with the gum ball eyes ( ha!), and my favorite of all, drumsticks. There was always “something” about a waffle cone, vanilla ice cream, chocolate coating, and nuts that was just perfect ( anyways, I digress…) This recipe, what I affectionately call, Paleo Banana “Drumstick” chunks, teeters dangerously close to the old school drumsticks that I loved so much. Although there is no waffle cone or ice cream, this recipe uses chunks of banana, coated in dark chocolate and crushed pecans. Once frozen for 45 minutes, these little treats literally melt in your mouth. The cold creamy texture and natural sweetness makes you forget all about that “old” vice of yours. The prep time is incredibly short and easy; the only wait is the freeze time. Hope you enjoy!
- 3 bananas – chopped into 1 inch chunks
- 2 bars of dark chocolate
- 1/2 cup of coconut milk
- 1/2 cup of crushed pecans
- take a small baking sheet that will fit into a shelf of your freezer. Line it with parchment paper. In a small sauce pan, melt your two chocolate bars and coconut milk over low heat, mixing well. Once fully melted, dump chocolate on a small plate and mix with crushed pecans. Take your banana chunks and roll them in the melted chocolate/pecan mixture. Place each chunk on parchment paper and place in the freezer for at least 45 minutes ( or longer).
