I used to love these
Many years ago I used to love these – choc-ices and Wall’s Feasts – but I hadn’t given them a thought for ages until my friend passed on a brilliant idea she got from The Raw Chocolate Company. I realise now that this is not a new idea, but it’s a good one so here it is:
Get a couple of ripe bananas,
some cashews, or whatever nuts you fancy,
and some raw chocolate.
Plus you’ll need some lolly sticks or chop sticks or similar.
Soak the nuts overnight or at least for a few hours, then rinse them and spread them out to dry on a clean tea towel for an hour or so. When they’re a bit dryer you can put them through a food processor so that they’re finely chopped.
Melt the chocolate.
Carefully peel the bananas and chop them in half. Then lay them on a sheet of eco-friendly parchment paper and stick lolly sticks into them like so.
By the way, if you don’t have any chocolate or nuts you can just freeze the bananas at this stage and you’ll have a delicious ‘ice-cream’ lolly as it is.
However, if do you want the choc-ice, continue as follows:
Put the melted chocolate and the chopped nuts on separate plates;
then roll a banana in the melted chocolate,
and then in the nuts.
And pretty soon you should have a plate of nutty choc-ices to be. Put them in the freezer for a couple of hours or more.
Et voila! Simply scrumptious nutty banana choc-ices! Perfectly healthy – have as many as you like – and absolutely delicious!
You may be vegan, you may be raw, but you’ll never miss out on choc-ices again!
