Choc - Banana Crunch Nicecream

Makes 4

Ice creams:

3 frozen bananas

1/3 cup raw cacao powder

2 teaspoons vanilla


Chocolate coating:

2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

2 tablespoons raw cacao powder

2 teaspoons maple or other sweetener of choice



1/3 cup cacao crunch granola or any nut based granola would work well

Alternatively, chop up a handful of your own mixed nuts such as macadamias, walnuts and pecans



Blend the bananas with cacao, and vanilla and scoop into icy pole molds. Set in the freezer overnight.  When ready to add the crunch factor, whisk together coconut oil, cacao and maple. Drizzle one layer of molten chocolate over the icy pole, the chocolate will set quickly given they are frozen, so on the second layer of drizzling be ready to sprinkle your granola or chopped nuts over immediately so the chocolate holds them onto the icy pole. Eat immediately or wrap in greaseproof paper and pop back into the freezer to set again and eat later. Enjoy!
