The wonky spring weather continues, and while last week called for a return to toques in the morning, this week, the mercury is on the rise and the humidity is out in full force.
As soon as the temperatures warm, there is not one, but sometimes two, ice cream trucks that park at my kids’ school, waiting for them to come pouring out of their classes, tempting them with an assortment of frozen delicacies. Every single day (for the past four years!) my ten-year-old asks me for a treat, and every single day I say ‘no.’ It’s not that I don’t want him to have the occasional ice cream cone; it’s just that these trucks are privately owned, and I’m not sure how safe their products are (I’ve heard horrible things about ice cream trucks and the bacteria that grows within).
My solution is these frozen banana bites. I keep a container of them tucked in the freezer, and although they aren’t quite the same as the fake-coloured and semi-frozen confectioneries on offer at the playground, they are tasty. The frozen banana mimics the texture of ice cream, and the chocolate coating adds the hint of sweetness the kids are looking for.
Are you thinking about frozen treats this week? What are some of your favourites to keep on hand?
