Frozen Bananas


Maybe frozen bananas are “a thing”… I don’t know, but I somehow didn’t find out about them until Austin & I moved to China and he suggested them as a fun snack idea. His family sometimes ate them as a snack/ dessert growing up, and I’m so thankful he introduced me!



peanut butter

chocolate, melted


chopped nuts

shredded coconut

Directions and Notes:

Peel the bananas and arrange them on a dish. Top with any desired toppings (plenty of peanut butter and chocolate are a must!) and place in the freezer for at least 1 ½ hours, preferably 2-3 hours until frozen but not completely rock solid.

Remove from freezer and eat immediately.

These are a great snack for us and a really good party food. Our students love the “frozen banana buffet,” putting all kinds of stuff on top and then enjoying their own creations.
