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!

  1. Put each topping into its own small bowl.
