growing up, a favourite in the rickey household was a dessert we affectionately entitled “poop-on-a-cloud” otherwise known as just peanut butter on ice cream. now having my own family, a huge hit in our home are banana pops. a super easy, extra healthy option for a treat! and it’s a super fun activity to do with the kids… i love including them!
all you need is : 8 wooden ice-pop sticks or wooden skewers, 4 bananas, 1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, 4 tsp of butter or margarine, ¼ cup crushed whole-grain rice cereal (I just crush a rice cracker), 2 tbsp of flaxseed meal, ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut or crushed peanuts or any other favourite sprinkling like mini-m&m's and such
STEP 3: freeze for about an hour before serving & enjoy!
this recipe is from one of my absolute favourite cookbook which I turn to religiously throughout my week called “double delicious” by jessica seinfeld (her first book, “deceptively delicious”, is also a fantastic resource). she hides healthy veggies into everyday kid’s favourites & you can’t taste it! hence the ‘deceptively delicious’. i originally bought this book for me as i hate the taste of veggies. who knew it would be so useful?!
