Bluth Frozen Bananas

Pin It PIN IT!

CAN YOU GUESS WHAT SUNDAY IS? Can you guess? IT’S THE DAY I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR FOREVER! I’ll give you a hint…it has something to do with the below photo.




Who else is so excited they can barely contain it? As y’all know, I’m a little addicted to the show and have been dying for the 4th season since the 3rd season ended (DAMN YOU FOX). So, when Nutmeg Nanny suggested we host a little AD virtual party (aptly titled Operation Hot Ham Water), you know I had to hop on that stair car. When it came down to finding a recipe to share to celebrate the show, I knew almost immediately what I was going to make. I mean, you can’t have Arrested Development with frozen bananas. And what’s more Bluth than a traditional frozen banana dipped in nuts?

What makes this such an amazing treat, aside from the Arrested Development reference, is how easy this is to make. Simply cut a banana in half, dip in warm chocolate and scatter with nuts. It’s legitimately that easy. You can even omit the nuts for other toppings, like white chocolate glaze, sprinkles, candy, you name it! Frozen bananas are quite versatile. In fact, I may even entertain the idea of opening my own stand here in Virginia.

Back on the topic of frozen bananas (if I had a nickle for every time I said that), you have got to serve these at your Memorial Day shindig. They are much healthier than most frozen desserts and are a salute to one of the best shows ever created (I’m not biased).

    Haha. Love the gifs! I had so many I wanted to include in my post. Some that fit, some that didn't. I decided on not weirding out non-AD fans. Boring, right?

    I bet these were awful to photograph. You did a great job, though! :)

    Can you believe I've never had a frozen banana before? Definitely need to make these soon as I have at least 5 bananas just sitting on my kitchen counter!

    I just recently stumbled upon your blog, and I love it!

    This recipe is no exception~ it looks so yummy and easy! :)
    Although, looking at the recipe, I don't have canola oil...
    Can that be substituted with vegetable oil? Or would that alter the taste/consistency?
