Eating with Endo: chocolate-covered frozen bananas (Trader Joe's Gone Bananas)

9:00 AM

I was too lazy to take a picture, so here you go.
One of the frustrating parts of the past two years has been figuring out what I can and can't eat. Once we figured out I had endometriosis, it was a little less frustrating since I sort of had guidelines. But I still hate feeling awful after meals or having to forego foods I once enjoyed. (Although I was never crazy about red meat or alcohol, so that's not a loss...)

But this has also been a good thing for Andrew and me. We've been eating a lot healthier lately, and I've devoted more time to taking care of myself. I've also discovered new foods that I like and how to cook them.




In a quest to find a dessert that is somewhat healthy, I discovered this recipe for Trader Joe's Gone Bananas. I'm pretty much addicted to Trader Joe's and Fresh Thyme, so anything with that name is awesome by me.

Copycat Trader Joe's Gone Bananas


WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • 1 banana
  • 1 heaping cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Slice the banana and place the slices on a tray. Put the tray in the freezer until the bananas are frozen solid. About an hour.
  2. Meanwhile place the chocolate chips and the coconut oil in a small microwave safe bowl or measuring cup. Microwave for 30 seconds and then stir. Microwave for another 15 seconds and stir again, until all the chocolate is melted and smooth. Put it back in the microwave for another few seconds if necessary. Don't over heat. Set the chocolate aside to cool.
  3. When the bananas are frozen, dip them into the cooled chocolate and coat on all sides. Set the slices on a fork and then use a spoon to help drizzle the chocolate all over. Let any excess chocolate drip off before setting the slice down on parchment or waxed paper. Put the slices back in the freezer right away.
  4. You can store the slices in a zip lock freezer baggie once the chocolate has hardened.

This dessert is fantastic in a million different ways. For one, it's super quick and easy, which I always approve of in recipes. Secondly, bananas are great for cramps and stomach pain, even if you don't have endometriosis. And dark chocolate has so many health benefits and pairs nicely with frozen bananas.

Also, apparently bananas are good for dogs, too. Not with chocolate, obviously, but if you have some leftover banana, toss it to your dog. Juno now has a new favorite food, and I bet she'd love them frozen, too.

Hope you enjoy these as much as Andrew and I have!

  5. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the last four years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year, I had faith in God that I would be healed someday.This disease started to circulate all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, a few weeks ago I came on search on the internet if I could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search I saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (Hepatitis B and Cancer) by this Man Dr. Silver and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so I wrote to Dr. Silver telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! hmm i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later I started experiencing changes all over me as the Dr. assured me that I have cured, after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if I have been finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can email Dr. Silver (drsilverhealingtemple@gmail.com) sir I am indeed grateful for the help I will forever recommend you to my friends!!! with your lovely Email Address ( drsilverhealingtemple@gmail.com
