Here’s a quick little recipe your kids will love helping you make if you don’t mind a few chocolate dribbles and sticky fingerprints around your kitchen…
I had my first frozen banana poolside in Mexico when I was 23. My dad took me there for spring break with his girlfriend and her two kids. That tells you how cool I am…spending spring break with my dad!
Anywho, it was a hot day and we were just hanging out by the hotel pool and this little boy comes by with a cart full of frozen chocolate-dipped bananas. I think he sold out in 10 minutes. They were a dollar each. I still remember how delish that frozen banana was!
I also remember that while I was preoccupied with my yummy treat, my dad thought it would be fun to scare me with a giant iguana someone showed him on the beach. So NOT cool! He picked it up and chased me around the beach with that giant monster while I screamed my head off! Seriously? have you ever seen one? Those things creep me out to this day. Giant lizard faces just staring at you. Ewww…
My dad knew how I would react. He watched with a smile on his face just waiting for my response. He laughed so hard tears were running down his cheeks. That’s just wrong I tell you. Whose dad does that anyway? Oh, that would be mine. :)
No worries about iguana abuse – I’m pretty sure that scary creature was laughing his tail off along with my dad.
Anyway, back to the bananas. If you haven’t tried these before, make them. They’re messy, but so worth it! I promise no one will chase you around the kitchen. Except maybe a smiling kid with chocolate fingers.
