A big favorite of yesterday was frozen bananas. They were sold at the ballpark, on the boardwalk, and even at the corner store. Now see how easy it is to make Chocolate Almond Frozen Bananas right in your own kitchen!

What You'll Need

  • 3 large ripe (but firm) bananas
  • 1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped almonds

What to Do

  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Cut bananas in half crosswise and place a skewer lengthwise through the center (cut side) of each half. When all banana halves are skewered, place on prepared baking sheet and freeze for 3 to 4 hours, or overnight.
  3. After bananas have frozen, place chocolate chips and shortening in a medium-sized glass bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes, just until chips are melted.
  4. Remove from microwave and mix until smooth. Add almond extract and almonds; mix well.
  5. Over the bowl of chocolate, hold each banana by the stick and spoon chocolate mixture over, evenly coating it. Allow excess to drip off. Lay again on wax paper and freeze for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Store in resealable plastic storage bags.


If you'd prefer to melt the chocolate on the stovetop, just place the chocolate and shortening in a medium saucepan and melt over low heat, stirring frequently. Do not allow mixture to burn. If wrapped tightly, these bananas can last for up to 2 months in the freezer.

I am assuming bananas should be peeled before skewering and frozen. Just thought that should be made clear for novice cooks who might be embarrassed to ask.

Frozen bananas are still a big favorite today. Totally Bananas makes the best! They have four flavors: plain dark chocolate, sprinkled with peanuts, sprinkled with coconut, or sprinkled with rainbow sprinkles. Easier and better than making them yourself.
