Vanilla Sauce

To Assemble

  • Dip each banana slice in the chocolate or vanilla and using a spoon ensure all sides are coated. Place back onto the baking sheet and sprinkle with chopped nuts, shredded coconut or any other topping of choice
  • Place the baking tray back into the freezer and leave for a minimum of 1 hour or until the coatings have fully hardened. Once frozen store in an airtight container or zip loc bag for up to 2 months
