Do you know the old saying “form over function”? The idea behind the message is to choose what’s practical over what looks good. Of course, that would mean the the end to decorative pillows and lava lamps. They’re low on “function” but oh-so-high on “form”.

But I’m not sure I entirely agree with this sentiment. We need a little form, don’t you think? So, I search for equity between the two.

Recently I’ve been mulling a new saying, health over flavor. That’s because I realize most of my days I’m looking for balance between the two. We’ve all tasted food that tips the scale on the “healthy” side. It doesn’t usually leave us wanting more. And I’ve tipped the scale when I’ve opted for too much flavor.

That’s where these frozen choc covered bananas come in!

Sliced bananas are topped with peanut butter and waiting to be dipped in chocolate.

Ahh, flavor, you are such a flirt…but giving into you leaves me so “heavy” hearted! I like it when I can find that perfect balance in a recipe.

How to Make Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas Bites

Is there anything as good as frozen bananas dipped in chocolate? I don’t think so!

The inspiration for these choc covered frozen bananas came from my mother-in-law, Diane. (Thanks, Di!) There are several ways to go about putting these chocolate covered frozen bananas bites together. You can slice the bananas and freeze them first, or dunk fresh banana slices in the melted chocolate. I elected to add a little bit of peanut butter to this chocolate dipped frozen banana recipe.

When chocolate bananas are involved, peanut butter just needs to come along for the ride! And then I started getting creative. I pressed chopped peanuts, chia seeds, and even ground flax seeds into freshly cut banana slices, priming them for a dip in the melted chocolate pool.

To make the melted chocolate pool, place your chocolate in a small saucepan and melt over low heat. Add the soymilk and stir well. Because you’re going to freeze these treats, it’s OK if the chocolate is a little on the thin side.

I found that having the chocolate thinner made it easier to spread evenly over each banana slice. First place a piece of waxed paper on a tray that will fit in your freezer. Hold a banana slice in one hand and using a spatula cover it with the melted chocolate.

Place the banana slice (chocolate coating side down) on your waxed paper and place more melted chocolate on top. Use a small butter knife to spread the chocolate around the top and over the sides. You can be as neat or as messy as you want.

I promise, these frozen chocolate covered bananas will taste great either way!

I also decorated frozen chocolate banana bites with a little bit of the topping. So if the banana slice featured chopped peanuts inside, I placed a few chopped peanuts on top. I like surprises, but not always in my food!
I keep these frozen banana slices in the freezer so I can have a bite or two (or three) of chilled sweetness after any meal.

Did you know it’s easy to freeze bananas? I love having frozen bananas in the freezer at all times!

Ingredients

  • 2 or 3 bananas sliced
  • Topping – peanut butter, peanuts, brazil nuts, or almonds, chopped, chopped nuts , ground flax seed, or even Skittles
  • ½ cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons soy milk

Instructions

  • Slice the bananas into bite-size chunks and cover the top and bottom in an assortment of your favorite toppings. You might want to press those yummy toppings into the banana slices just a little bit. At this point you can freeze the banana slices. Just place them on a tray and place that tray in your freezer for a bit while you prepare the chocolate. Or you can melt the chocolate and begin dipping right away.
  • Place your chocolate in a small saucepan and melt over low heat. Add the soymilk and stir well. Because you’re going to freeze these treats, it’s OK if the chocolate is a little on the thin side. I found that having the chocolate thinner made it easier to spread evenly over each banana slice. First place a piece of waxed paper on a tray that will fit in your freezer.

  1. OMG – Yummeee!!! This look amazing Marly, definitely going to make these on the weekend, Matt and the boys will make these disappear quickly. Thank you

    • That is a problem with this recipe – it disappears WAY to quickly! Have Matt save you at least one!

    • I’ve made banana ice cream too (with just bananas) and that was good, but the flavor was very intense. I like this recipe because it balances the flavor of the frozen banana with the chocolate. How delicious is that!

    • Oh, Anna, you are SO right. I have gilded my share of lilies in my lifetime, but I just can’t seem to stop myself! I think I’ll start a support group. We could call it the Gilded Lily Society. The problem would be, of course, that we would all get together and think of new ways to gild. For example, those banana bites sure would look nice with sprinkles! See? There’s no hope for me!

  2. I found you on Finding Vegan, and my bites are in the freezer right now. I love this recipe because sometimes I just NEED something sweet and frozen and these are PERFCT, just what i was looking for so thank you!

    • Hi Madalyn – I’ve been vegan for nearly 5 years now so the flavor of cow’s milk tastes sour to me. If you don’t want to use soy milk, there are also great almond milk or coconut milk products you can use. In fact, you don’t have to use any milk at all for this recipe. I hope this helps!

    • As long as you keep them in the freezer they can remain stored for quite awhile. I would say at least a month, possibly two. The thing is, they’re so good to eat…you probably won’t need to!
