Chocolate covered banana pops are my current dessert obsession. I have a serious love affair going on with bananas. They make a daily appearance in my diet… and if I’m out all day, you can bet your bottom dollar that I have a banana or two with me. I’ve got a healthy sweet tooth to satisfy after all!
And can you really blame me? Bananas are loaded with tons of marvelous nutrients like vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, potassium, fiber, copper and biotin. And your gut gets some goodness too; the probiotics in bananas help to keep your gut microbiome healthy and happy.
Super bonus – they also help to support your beautiful heart, thanks to lovely potassium. Potassium helps to keep your blood pressure regulated and might even protect you from atherosclerosis (the hardening and narrowing of your arteries). Booyah!
While these gorgeous fruits are pretty fantastical all on their own, I certainly don’t see anything wrong with amping up the awesomeness by dipping them in homemade chocolate! What do you think? Wanna treat yourself to some banana pops too?
