In our refusal to pay for cable, we have somehow found ourselves subscribing to NetFlix and watching sit-coms that we didn’t see earlier when they were on television. We have recently watched several eposodes of Arrested Development, and every time George Michael Bluth (played by Michael Cera), is working in the family’s frozen banana stand, I am reminded of this childhood treat that my mom used to make with me.
Today I finally made the frozen banana I have been craving. It doesn’t look all that pretty, but it tasted good!
Melt a handful of chocolate chips in the microwave, heating 20 seconds at a time and stirring until they are completely melted. Meanwhile, peel a banana and cut in half. Push a popsicle stick into each half of the banana, then coat with chocolate and freeze. I used a silicone brush to help spread the chocolate onto the banana. Next time I think I’ll also sprinkle on some chopped walnuts.
