Chocolate Dipped Fruit with Almond or Coconut Butter and/or Medjool Dates

I stumbled upon a couple recipes that looked delicious, Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas

and Coconut Butter and Almond Butter Cups.

Undecided on which recipe I would make, I decided to make a hybrid of both-

Chocolate Dipped Fruit with Almond or Coconut Butter and/or Medjool Dates.

 Ingredients:

4 tbls Trader Joe’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, 16 fl oz

2-3 Ripe Bananas cut into disks

7-8 Strawberries cut in half or in circles

Homemade Almond Butter or Justin’s Nut Butter Almond Butter, Classic, 16 Ounce or Maranatha All Natural Coconut Butter, 15 oz

Bergin Nut Company Organic Medjool Dates, 14 Ounce Bag
, pitted and cut into half circles or circles

Cut Fruit and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.

Pit and cut Medjool Dates

Arrange cut figs and almond/coconut butter on frozen fruit

Place in Freezer for a minimum of 2.5 hours.

When everything is frozen, prepare chocolate by melting chocolate and coconut oil slowly in the microwave or on stove.

I used the microwave, 50% for 1 min, stirred and then 100% for 20 seconds.

Drop frozen and decorated fruit into melted chocolate and turn with a spoon.

Place back on wax paper to cool. The chocolate will harden almost immediately and a hard chocolate shell will form.

Once hardened, place in a Ziploc bag and keep in freezer until ready to eat.

Perfect for an after run treat to cool you down! 

ENJOY!
