This summer will go down in history as “The Summer of The Real Healthy Ice Cream Sandwich”! I’m not sure how many batches of these yummy, frozen treats I made, but let’s just say it was nearly every week 🙂
I love this idea of calling frozen bananas ice cream. When you really compare the consistency and sweetness of frozen banana to actual ice cream, it’s not that far off. So in this awesomely simple recipe, I took half of a banana, filled it with an almond butter mixture and covered it in dark chocolate. Simple, quick, easy and down right delicious.
The kids loved the novelty of eating this treat on a stick, and I loved the convenience of keeping a bunch in the freezer and simply grabbing a couple and giving them to the kids with the instructions of “Go eat these outside!” 🙂
- In a bowl mix together the almond butter, vanilla extract, almond extract and ground cinnamon.
- Slice 4 bananas in half lengthwise and crosswise. Cover each sliced banana with the almond butter mixture, press a wooden skewer between two pieces of banana to create 8 sandwiches. Freeze for 30 minutes.
- Over low heat, melt the chocolate and oil together. Dip each frozen sandwich in the melted chocolate until fully coated. Return to the freezer for 10 minutes.
- There you go, a quick and delish, real food ice cream sandwich! Enjoy!
