Chocolate and Coconut Frozen Banana Popsicles

Serves 6

Frozen banana popsicles are easy to prepare, fun to make with kids and a sweet substitute for ice cream or other popsicles. If you'd like to make them ahead for a party or to have on hand for after-school snacks, simply wrap the finished popsicles individually in foil after their chocolate coating has set and store in the freezer.

Ingredients: 
  • 3 large Whole Trade™ Bananas, peeled and halved crosswise
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet or milk Whole Trade™ chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted
  • 6 ice-pop sticks

Method: 

Carefully push a stick into the cut end of each banana half, leaving about 11/2 inches of the stick poking out. Transfer bananas to a parchment paper-lined sheet tray and freeze until just solid, 30 to 45 minutes.

Microwave chocolate in a medium bowl, stirring every 20 to 30 seconds, until chocolate is completely smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. (Or, melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler.)

Transfer coconut to a wide, shallow dish and remove bananas from freezer. Working with one banana half at a time, spoon some of the melted chocolate over the banana and spread around with the back of the spoon to cover the surface. Sprinkle banana with some of the coconut, allowing any that doesn't stick to fall back into the dish. Return banana halves to baking sheet and freeze until chocolate is set, about 10 minutes.
