Tae and I had fun in the kitchen this morning. We made popsicles out of our left over smoothie, then we made a kid version of CHOCOBANANOS. We used carob powder instead of cacao powder. While we love a good cacao powder, carob does not contain any kind of stimulant such as caffeine or theobromine, so everyone can eat them at any time of day. Carob powder contains antioxidants and minerals such as calcium and selenium. It is naturally sweet, so there is no need to add any other sugar.
This is the easiest recipe and so fun to make together...
Peel and slice bananas into 3 or 4 pieces. Put popsicle sticks through the bottom of bananas.
Freeze bananas on a plate about 30 minutes.
Melt coconut oil in a double boiler. We simply fill a small pot with about an inch of water, then place a pyrex baking bowl on top.
Stir in carob and salt. Once melted, take bananas out and dip them in.
Sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
You can pour the extra carob mix into silicon moulds to make mini kid "chocolates".
Keep frozen until ready to serve.
