We're all about a good snack, and taking a classic treat to new superfood heights is one of the best ways to beat the 3 p.m. slump. Superfood maven and founder of Philosophie, Sophie Jaffe knows exactly how to incorporate tons of nutritious goodies in ways that feel natural and delicious. Today she's sharing her recipe for chocolate-covered bananas with magnesium and antioxidant-rich cacao, bee pollen for B vitamins and folate, and anti-inflammatory goji berries—which all add up to one energy-boosting snack.
Chocolate. Bananas. And Superfoods. OH MY.
Goodness. And so much of it. I've always enjoyed chocolate-covered bananas on a stick. I remember falling in love with them at street fairs as a little girl and hoping that the ice cream man would still have some left in his truck after making the rounds through my neighborhood. Well, some things never change, and for the most part, my tastes haven't changed either. I still love chocolate, I still love bananas, and I definitely still have a sweet tooth, but I'm not so much in love with the idea of putting overprocessed, sugary sweets into my body.
So as a healthier, nutrient-dense, superfood-rich spinoff, I've recreated a childhood favorite and mashed three ingredients I can't live without into one recipe. These pops may take a little time to freeze, but trust me, once they're solid, you'll be inhaling them in a matter of seconds.
