Banana Bonbons

Quick! Before warm weather is totally over, make a cold, refreshing treat: banana bonbons! And if you still eat them through the winter, it’s okay. We don’t blame you, and we won’t tell!

Does anything possibly say awesome treat more than bonbons? They’re easy to pop into your mouth when you stroll by the freezer, they’re fun to dive into while sitting by the pool, and they’re arguably even more fun to just say out loud: “bonbon!” Of course, traditional bonbons can make you feel like crap crap. Full of dairy and processed sugar, they don’t exactly shout “good health!”

But know what does? These banana bonbons. Also known (to me) as “ban bans.” These cuties are so simple to make, so healthy, so fun, and so impressive that you (and whoever's lucky enough to enjoy them with you) will be left smiling from ear to ear.

There’s really nothing more to say other than, yeah: these banana bonbons really are the bomb bomb.

Banana Bonbons


  • vegan or dark chocolate chips
  • RIPE banana(s)

**note: a good ratio is about ½ cup chocolate chips to 1 large banana**

Total Time

Prep Time

15 min


Peel your ripe banana(s) and cut it/them into bite-sized chunks. Place those on a wax-paper-lined pan, plate or Tupperware (whatever can fit into your freezer). Let the banana bites freeze for about an hour.

Right before you're going to take out the banana bites, melt your chocolate. You can do this in a microwave or on the stove using a double boiler.

Remove your bananas from the freezer and start coating them: one by one, stab each banana with a fork, coat it with the melted chocolate. Place each chunk back onto the wax paper.

Once all the bananas have turned to bons, place your tray back into the freezer for at least another 20 minutes.
