Looking for a quick, no-bake, healthy(ish) summer dessert? Look no further than these chocolate-dipped banana slices. Inspired by a dessert my mom made a couple of weeks ago for our family, I am so excited to share this fun, endlessly customizable recipe with the Heinen’s community!

Chocolate-Dipped Banana Slices

I chose to dip my slices in white, dark and milk chocolate to have variety, and I topped each bite with a mix of healthy almonds and unsweetened coconut, as well as some sprinkles for fun color. The key to easy dipping is to use slightly under-ripe bananas to minimize excess moisture. The less moisture there is on the banana, the better the chocolate will stick! Happy dipping!
