Frozen banana-chocolate treats are not only delicious, but they're fun to make with your kids, too, says Mitzi Dulan, R.D., co-author of The All-Pro Diet and owner of Mitzi Dulans' Boot Camp. Place unpeeled bananas on sticks and freeze them. Once they’re frozen, drizzle with a little melted dark chocolate and serve. “You are getting some fruit while also enjoying chocolate,” says Dulan. They’re great for adults, too. “The flavonoids in dark chocolate provide antioxidant properties,” says Dulan, which are believed to play a role in preventing chronic conditions, like heart disease.
