Chocobananos

During our childhood we could not miss eating a chocobanano, it’s so famous in the popular gastronomy of Guatemala that -in any shop, in any town- you cannot miss this it. The traditional recipe was frozen bananas, coated with melted chocolate; but now, the imagination of those who prepare this delight has exceeded limits and we can find diversity of chocos.

Seasonal fruits (chocomango, chocofresa, chocococo, chocopapaya) and even sweet breads. And the topping, has also changed with time; peanuts, colored sprinkles, flavored gummies, coconut, whatever you’d like.
Summer afternoons are the perfect excuse to taste a chocofruta, why don’t you try to do it, enjoy and cool up with this traditional dessert?
