    • mini chocolate chips: for topping

    Directions:

    banana slices on foil

    Step 1: Peel and slice the bananas. Lay the slices out on a foil-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and pop in the freezer for about an hour.

    Step 2: Take the bananas from the freezer and toss the bananas into the bowl of a food processor.

    Step 3: Blend the frozen bananas until smooth. The frozen blend might require some coaxing with a hard plastic scraper. It gets a little clumpy before it gets smooth. Once it's smooth, stir in ½ cup of the mini chocolate chips.

    Step 4: Use a large cookie scoop to portion out the banana/chocolate chip mix onto the foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the scoops with chocolate chips. Place in the freezer for an hour to harden.

    Step 5: Eat! We love ours plain or topped with cut up strawberries.

    Uneaten scoops should be transferred in a freezer-safe container with a lid, layered with wax paper.

    Optional: Press a wooden stick into the scoops before freezing them to make them easier to eat for little hands and mouths.
