Frozen Banana Bites

Have you ever had a frozen banana? They are really, really good. A frozen banana can be blended and refrozen and it will taste pretty much just like ice cream. I don't eat ice cream anymore, but was craving ice cream and chocolate. So, I combined the two. First, we cut a few bananas in 1-inch pieces. It doesn't have to be perfect. We placed them on some parchment paper on a cookie sheet and froze them in the freezer for a few hours.
 When the bananas were frozen, we melted our chocolate. You can pretty much use any kind of chocolate you have lying around. The healthier and more natural your chocolate is, the healthier your treat. I used a combination of semi-sweet chocolate chips and some natural white chips from a health food store. I don't know how much healthier exactly they were, but it made me feel better, alright? Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until the chocolate is smooth.
 Remove banana bites from the freezer and dip each bite in your melted chocolate. Place chocolate-covered banana bites back on your parchment covered cookie sheet and refreeze for a few hours. Later, you will have an awesome ice cream-like treat. These babies are addictive and so delicious.
Enjoy!
