Raise your hand if you remember BON BONS? Yes, the little chunks of ice cream covered in chocolate that you just popped in your mouth. There was just something about them that made you feel like royalty when you indulged in them. In fact most of us think that royalty just “lay around eating bon bons”… Was it the rich creamy ice cream? Was it the decadent chocolate that they were dipped in? Was it the fact that they were the perfect way to BLOW YOUR DIET? What ever it was, I had my fair share of them in my days past. Now that I do not indulge in any of the conventional ingredients that traditional bon bons are made of, how am I to feel like royalty again? I can regain that feeling without all the stuff I don’t want by making my recipe for BANANA BON BONS. Yes.. they are still frozen treats. YES.. they have a creamy and dreamy center.
OH YES.. they are covered in decadent chocolate! Since they have ALL of the bon bons beloved components, what is missing? Well these little guys are missing the cholesterol, dairy, refined sugar, trans-fat, preservatives, emulsifiers, and highly processed artificial ingredients that the commercially produced bon bon have. I am sorry that I had to just ruin the fantasy of the other bon bons but wait….. Here is what this recipe has–Banana, coconut oil, date syrup, cacao and shredded coconut; and they are raw vegan paleo. You can definitely feel good about those ingredients and that they conform to a healthy lifestyle! AND again, the creamy dreamy chocolate covered frozen treat that TASTES AMAZING! So even though we crave bon bons, we can ALL indulge in BANANA BON BONS and feel like royalty again! BON BON APPETIT!
