where to buy frozen bananas
About 20 years later, in 1961 at the Arizona State Fair, Bob Teller was also selling frozen bananas dipped in chocolate and nuts with his wife, Rita, from their concession stand, the Banana Rolla Rama. Teller borrowed the idea for the frozen bananas from a candy shop in Lake Arrowhead Village, California. The recipe was simple: Freeze a banana, dip it into the specially-made, proprietary chocolate, and roll it in nuts or sprinkles. They sold for 25 or 30 cents each, depending on the size of the banana.
To freeze a whole banana, simply remove the peel, and then place it in an airtight container. I can usually fit up to 10 whole bananas into one of these large rectangle containers. (Feel free to break a banana or two in half to make it fit into the side of the container.)
When you add a frozen whole banana to a smoothie, you can break it into thirds, or just in half, pretty easily with your hands, so that it will break down faster. You can also use a knife to cut a frozen banana into smaller pieces.
If you want to use a frozen banana in a baking recipe, like my vegan banana bread, remove the banana from the freezer and let it thaw in a bowl at room temperature for about 2 hours. (You can also let it thaw overnight in the fridge.)
TBH, banana peels have great health benefits. Place the entire banana in the freezer, and when you are ready to spin up that Majic Bullet for your smoothie, just take a sharp knife, and cut the stem from the frozen banana, and also the bottom end, and drop the banana, peel and all, into the cup. Press the button, and marvel at the magic happening as the razor sharp blades spin at high velocity.
I froze banana slices on an ice tray lined with a polyethylene bag. It peels off just fine. Upon defrosting the bananas are mushy as expected, even though they were firm with green skin (as I like them). I would only do slices and eat them cold, not whole. The slimy material is easy to bite into.
What is a Balboa Bar and why is it associated with frozen bananas? If you have never been to Balboa Island, you might be missing out on local frozen favorites that have been offered on the island since the 1940s.
The actual origins of the Balboa Bar (the ice cream dipped in toppings, not the banana dipped in chocolate and/or toppings) are unclear. There are local legends that say it debuted in the 1950s on Balboa Island (about a decade after frozen bananas) and we actually seem to have more information on the local frozen banana rivalry than we do for the origin story of Balboa Bars.
There are more vendors than you can count selling Balboa Bars and frozen bananas today. Some of the best-known names are also some of those who have been in business the longest, but not all of them have a decades-long tradition selling these popular frozen treats:
The Banana Cart is the ultimate Dessert Cart Catering! No work for you and lots of happiness for your guests.

They walk away with a Gourmet Frozen Banana Pop and a smile.
For me, going back was important. It was meaningful. It was where we used to go to when I lived in Kentucky, in Indiana. I've lost a lot of who I was then, growing up and older. I wanted to remember, to greet the town we spent weekends at when my mother worked nigh shifts and my father stuffed newspapers with coupons to make ends meet.
Directions: Cut 4 bananas in the middle on a diagonal. Pierce each with a skewer or popsicle stick. Place onto a parchment-lined half sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes. Melt 12 ounces of dark chocolate in a small bowl, either in the microwave or in a double boiler. Remove bananas from freezer and dip into melted chocolate. Sprinkle with rose and cocoa nib sprinkles from Kale and Caramel. Freeze for another hour before you can enjoy!

Microwave almond butter and 1/2 Tbs oil in 30 second increments; stir until smooth. Use a spoon to cover banana with almond butter mixture. Place bananas on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with 3 other banana pops.
After bananas are frozen and firm (1-2 hours), place the banana slices in a container that seals well, label and date it, and return to freezer. We like to label the bag with the date and how many bananas the bag contains.
Caveat emptor: You may have seen tips online for roasting under-ripe bananas in their skin for 30 minutes in a 350F oven. This is supposed to concentrate their flavor and make them sweet. I tried it; they were indeed deep black, but they tasted like green bananas, only mushy. Don't go there.
Use whatever bananas you can get. Increase the sugar in the recipe by about 15% (generally 2 to 3 tablespoons) to help with the missing sweetness; and increase the salt by about 25% to help with flavor intensity.
After making these Dark Chocolate Frozen Banana Pops, I'm not really sure why ice cream is a thing. Wait...let me rephrase that, because I totally know why ice cream is a thing. I mean, if you have never had a frozen banana, you really should. They are so creamy, sweet, and so much healthier than a normal ice cream bar. We dipped ours in dark chocolate (oh yeah...). Then we rolled the bananas in chopped pecans (keeps getting better, huh?)
My husband loves frozen banana bites. Have you made them? They are all over Pinterest. You simply take bananas, slice them into inch thick slices, smear them with peanut butter (chunky, of course), and dip them in chocolate. Then freeze.
Yes the chocolate should be warm. I recommend a good quality baking chocolate, the 60% cacao dark chocolate chunks is what we used. If you seem to be having trouble, you can try patting the bananas "dry" first, if they seem to be slippery?
This is the best summer treat by far I have made this year. Frozen Banana Monkey Tails are so easy to make and good for you too. No need to feel guilty indulging in this summer treat. Only two ingredients and you have a frozen treat everyone in the family will love.
If you peeled them and cut them in half you can still make chocolate covered bananas. Follow the directions below and enjoy. You may not be able to put them on a stick if already frozen. If you cut them in to bite size pieces you can drizzle them with melted chocolate and extra toppings to have bite size chocolate banana treats.
4. Dip the frozen bananas into the melted chocolate holding on to the skewer. I used a small spatula to help get the chocolate all over the bananas. Working quickly add toppings, the chocolate starts to set up fast. Add sprinkles, coconut or nuts. Whatever toppings you wish.
Of course it is a healthy frozen treat you can enjoy. I always like a little dessert after dinner. These frozen banana monkey tail treats really satisfy my sweet tooth. Truly a dessert treat you can feel good about eating.
With summer being so hot here in Texas this is a fun frozen treat. Seriously, no guilt here. Everyone in my family loves these. OK, they raved about them. I consider this a miracle, since everyone in my family rarely agrees on anything, ever. We loved them so much I have already made a second batch. We at the first batch way too quickly.
I think they taste fantastic. Less calories than regular ice cream treats and good for you too. Frozen bananas dipped in chocolate taste even better. You can even cut them up and freeze them for smoothies like an apple pie smoothie.
I coated my bananas with semi-sweet chocolate and a variety of toppings: salted nuts, sprinkles, toasted coconut, and white chocolate. I think my favorite variation was the salted pistachios, but really, anything that adds a little crunch is perfect. I liked them best when they sat out of the freezer for about 10-15 minutes, so that the bananas softened just a bit and had a creamy, almost ice cream-like consistency, instead of their initial rock-hard texture.
A blog post dedicated to Arrested Development and a frozen banana stand?! How awesome are you! I just learned today that AD is coming back and I could barely contain my excitement while reading about it on the train on my way home. (I live in England so news get to us later.)And now this awesomeness. Too much! Thank you for the entertainment and a Steve Holt reference. ?
If you prefer, you can make banana bites. Simply, slice the bananas and freeze them until firm. Then using toothpicks to grab the slices, dip them in the chocolate and sprinkle with toppings. Freezer until firm.
I love this idea! I will be on the look out for the smallest bananas I can find for my 3yr and 21 month old and the book from the library. Thanks for sharing your experiance we moms often get wrapped up in the unimportant when we need to be wrapped up in the littele things with our kids. I can always use the reminder that these days will not last long. 041b061a72
