Guys! Listen up! I have a toothsome recipe for you: some frozen choco-banana bites! Oh so yummy!

To make these delicious treats, you’ll need:

– 1 or 2 bananas (before freezing them, don’t forget to slice the fruits!)

– 12 squares of (100% cacao) chocolate bar (it’s tantamount to about 75 grams)

– 3 table spoons of oat milk

– 1 table spoon of coconut oil

– 1 teaspoon of coconut palm sugar

– 1 pinch of cayenne pepper

– 1 pinch of Himalayan salt

– 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla

– 1 teaspoon of maca

– 2 tablespoons of pop-quinoa

Easy as a pie a banana:

The night before, you can freeze your banana slices.

First, melt the 100% cacao bar with the oat milk, the coconut oil in a bain-marie (hot-water “bath”).

Add a tea spoon of water if the chocolate is not runny enough.

When everything has melted together, you can add the coconut sugar, the maca powder, all the spices and the pop-quinoa. Stir it quickly once again.

Dip the frozen banana slices into the chocolate sauce.

You can roll these slices in some more pop-quinoa / raw cacao nibs / coconut flakes / Himalayan salt.

Let these choco-banana bites sit into your freezer for 2 hours.

Enjoy!

Health Benefits:

– Banana is a good source of vitamin B6, potassium (which may help you improve your brain activity when learning for instance), magnesium and manganese.

Raw cacao is said to protect the nervous system as it is high in resveratrol (a potent antioxidant), to help repair damages caused by free radicals (again thanks to those powerful antioxidants!), to reduce blood pressure and to energize your mood. Raw cacao is also a great source of minerals like magnesium (again: Good for the brain!), potassium, iron and zinc.

– Maca is a root from Peru that may help balance the hormones, boost mental clarity and help with endurance.

Cinnamon can help to curve hunger and balance blood sugar levels.

Cayenne pepper is regarded as a metabolic-booster: It could be used to burn fat.
