- In a food processor, place bananas, lemon juice, milk and vanilla and blitz until smooth. Pour mixture evenly into 10 x 1/3-cup (80ml) capacity ice block moulds. Freeze ice blocks overnight, or until firm.
- In a heatproof bowl, melt chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute on high (see tip). Be careful not to overheat it. Stir well until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
- Remove the ice blocks from moulds. Dip tips into melted chocolate. Serve straight away or place on a tray lined with baking paper and refreeze.
Make it vegan: Use almond milk and check chocolate is vegan.
Use good-quality chocolate with 70 per cent or more cocoa.
You can also melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.
If the moulds you’re using don’t have a stick or handle, cover mould opening with tinfoil and poke stick through into pop mixture before freezing. The foil holds the stick in place.
