Frozen Superfood Bananas with Raw Chocolate Sauce

Desserts, Simple In 7, Summer Recipes

Frozen Superfood Bananas with Raw Chocolate Sauce | Nutrition Stripped

You’re welcome, guys. These are ridiculously good, simple to make, and delicious! Frozen Superfood Bananas with Raw Chocolate Sauce can be made in so many ways. These frozen fiber and potassium rich bananas topped with raw chocolate sauce rich in antioxidants and superfood crunchy toppings to make the perfect simple healthy dessert everyone will love. I’m going to share my favorites with you today and the next time you’re craving chocolate, ice cream, or want to reach for a popsicle, try these!


Remember my Campfire Banana Boats last summer? Those were a huge hit so I’m bringing back bananas in a different way this summer – completely frozen and topped with “superfoods”/ nutrient dense ingredients to give these beautiful color, added nutrition, and a little crunchy texture! Not only are these beautiful, but they’re a crowd pleaser and so fun to share with friends and family at BBQ’s, picnics, pool parties, or late night hangs on the porch. Note to friends with banana allergies, try sliced mango, pear, or pineapple. For a recap about why bananas are so great, read up on the NS Pantry page for bananas health benefits and nutrition information. You can also make these into “pops” by adding a skewer or wooden stick into the center of each banana half before freezing- these are great for portable snacks and desserts as well!

Frozen Superfood Bananas with Raw Chocolate Sauce
Recipe type: dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
A frozen superfood banana topped with raw chocolate and superfood crunchy toppings, the perfect simple healthy dessert everyone will love.
  • 3 large bananas, peeled and cut in half (widthways)
  • For the raw chocolate sauce:
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Optional garnishes for the toppings: toasted coconut, bee pollen, freeze dried raspberries, cacao nibs, lemon zest, cocoa powder, goji berries, powdered vanilla, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, and pistachios
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, placing each banana half about an inch or two from each other to make room for toppings. Place a skewer or popsicle stick in the center of each banana, going up the length of the banana. Place in the freezer for 8 hours or overnight until hard.
  2. In the meantime, make the raw chocolate sauce to pour on top of each banana half. In a small mixing bowl combine cocoa powder, maple syrup, sea salt, and coconut oil until smooth. I'll make this right before assembling bananas.
  3. Once bananas are completely frozen, using a spoon, drizzle the raw chocoate sauce over each half of the banana, immediately garnish it with optional garnishes, repeat until all bananas are covered.
  4. Place bananas back on the parchment paper and place in the freezer for 30 minutes or until chocolate has set.
  5. Store and serve directly out of the freezer. I keep these in a airtight glass container for up to a month.

    this recipe is using all my favorite ingredients, banana, goji berry, etc. thanks for sharing.

    • McKel Hill

      Glad you enjoyed it!

  • Janine

    Such a great idea for a healthy and tasty summer Snack. I never used caco nibs. Are they also healthy and not made from unhealthy sugar?

    • McKel Hill

      Cacao nibs are pure cocoa bean, not chocolate so there’s nothing added to them! They’re a great source of magnesium as well 🙂

  • Shannon

    I made this today and oh my. Amazing. My bananas were not completely frozen but delicious nonetheless. It’s definitely worth trying the shaved coconut. I also put pecans in my food processor and rolled the banana in them — delicious!! I can’t wait to experiment with other toppings.

    I also did strawberries and put them all on a beautiful platter. Perfect for a summer evening. Definitely will make this again.

    Enjoy! Shannon

    • McKel Hill

      Thanks for sharing Shannon and so glad you enjoyed it! I love frozen bananas don’t you!?

  • Kimberly

    These are delicious! I used shredded coconut and crushed cashews on mine.

  • Anna

    Can you use avocado oil instead of coconut oil? Milder taste.

    • McKel Hill

      Great question! You need coconut oil specifically because it solidifies when cold and that’s what keeps the chocolate sauce hard on the bananas!
