These paleo frozen banana pops are the perfect way to treat your kids on a hot summer day
A paleo diet is a very natural diet. It stresses eating animal products, vegetables and fruits, raw nuts and seeds and some added fats (such as coconut oil, avocado and butter.) The diet asks that all grains are avoided.
Today I am using a Paleo nut butter to make frozen banana pops. Nut butter is a great alternative to Nutella and makes these frozen banana pops a really great tasting treat.
To make these Paleo frozen banana pops, start by peeling a banana and then cutting it in half. Insert a bamboo skewer into the center of the banana and freeze until it is firm.
Combine the nut butter with a bit of coconut oil and heat it in the microwave until it is a nice soft consistency that will make dipping the banana easy.
The nut butter is quite thick, so add about a tsp at a time and heat it in the microwave until it is the desired consistency.
When the banana is almost frozen, assemble your ingredients in a dipping station. I used chopped pecans and coconut but there are other options too.
Enjoy Life makes a semi sweet mini chocolate chip and you can make your own paleo sprinkles using coconut and gel food coloring!
Take our your frozen banana and roll it in the nut butter. Then roll the coated banana into either chopped pecans or coconut.
Place the coated bananas on a silicone baking mat and freeze for about 20 minutes.
Remove and eat the paleo frozen banana pop like a popsicle. Enjoy!
