Banana Rockets

Banana Rockets

One of the easiest ways to get the kids to eat their fruits and veggies is to disguise them ways they never expect. Maybe sprinkling veggies on top of pizza and covering them with cheese. Or how about smothering good-for-us bananas in molten chocolate and coconut, then serving them frozen? What a sweet disguise.

What You'll Need

  • 3 bananas, peeled and cut crosswise in half
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening

What to Do

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Insert a wooden craft stick or skewer through the cut end of each banana half.
  3. Place the toasted coconut in a shallow dish. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave 60 to 90 seconds or until smooth. Spoon chocolate over bananas, covering them completely, then roll in toasted coconut, coating completely.
  4. Place on the baking sheet and freeze 20 minutes. Serve, or cover and keep frozen until ready to serve.
