It’s been a hot, dry summer in YVR this year. If you’re anything like us, you’ve been sweating up a storm living in a teeny tiny insulating condo, with no air conditioning, and no airflow! We feel your pain and we offer you our Summer solution: the fro-nana. With a crisp chocolatey coating that melts in your mouth and cool creamy inside, this fro-nana beats any store bought ice cream bar! Show them off at your next summer dinner party or enjoy one in the sun while trying to catch a breeze on your patio- that’s where you’ll find us.

Instructions
  1. Peel bananas, chop in half, insert Popsicle stick in base, and place in container
  2. Chop nuts and cherries (if selected). Toast nuts and coconut (if selected) in oven at 380 degrees F until lightly golden or fragrant (approximately 4-6 minutes)
  3. Melt chocolate chips in small glass bowl in microwave, warming with 10-20 second intervals and stirring in between to prevent chocolate from burning

  5. Return topped banana to freezer and continue with next banana. Fro-nanas can be stored in freezer in a sealed container
