Indulge in a delightful frozen treat that combines the sweet creaminess of bananas with the irresistible allure of a snappy chocolate shell. The first time I tried this combo it reminded me of my childhood trips to Dairy Queen where I’d order a soft-serve vanilla cone dipped in their “magic” chocolate… which instantly hardened and became the best treat ever. It also reminds me of a chocolate-coated ice cream pop (ever get one of those from the ice cream truck?! So good!)

This rendition really is a perfect way to satisfy cravings in a healthy-ish style. And the topping options are endless. You’ll see I’m using shredded coconut and peanut butter, but you can easily swap in chopped nuts, granola, and so much more. Make a batch for parties and playdates… or just for yourself!


Melt the chocolate chips using a double boiler or in the microwave. For the microwave method: stop and stir every 20 seconds until they are velvety smooth (~2 minutes total). *Life-changing hack* To make cleanup easier, mist your microwave-safe bowl with oil spray before adding your chocolate chips. The leftover chocolate will scrape off the bowl more seamlessly in the sink.

Make this recipe dairy-free and vegan by selecting dairy-free chocolate chips.

I like to take it over the top with a drizzle of melty peanut butter and a sprinkle of shredded coconut, but you are the boss of your sauce; use almond butter, tahini, or sunflower seed butter, and crushed peanuts, pistachios, or almonds— you name it, it works. You can even add a drop of mint extract to the melted chocolate for a refreshing surprise.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 12 pieces
  • • 2 bananas, each cut into thirds and then those pieces sliced in half
  • • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips, melted*
  • • 1 to 2 tablespoons peanut butter, melted**
  • • 1 to 2 tablespoons shredded coconut, optional

* You’ll have about ½ cup chocolate leftover, but having more to start makes it easier to dunk and coat the banana pieces.

** Microwave nut butter for about 20 seconds to get it melty and pourable


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place a piece of banana on top of a fork (do not pierce, just lay it flat) and dunk into the melted chocolate, flipping to ensure all sides are coated. Then, using the same fork carefully lift the chocolate-coated banana over the bowl and allow any excess chocolate to drip off. Place on lined baking sheet. Follow the same process with all remaining pieces. Drizzle melted peanut butter and sprinkle shredded coconut over the tops, if desired.

Place baking sheet in freezer for at least one hour to freeze and transfer to a storage bag once frozen.
