1) Take out the pits in the dates and be sure to check for little hard ends that are occasionally left on the dates. They are extremely hard, like the pits, and if left on can break a tooth. Blend almonds or almond butter, milk, vanilla, cocoa, and pitted dates in a high-powered blender. Peel and slice bananas in half, lengthwise. Place spoonfuls of chocolate mixture to cover one side of a banana and gently place the other side of the banana on top (like a sandwich) without pressing down. Place on a freezer-safe plate or tray covered with parchment paper or waxed paper. Freeze until firm enough to cut without the filling squeezing out (at least 3 hours). Cut into 1 inch disks and place in a tightly covered container or ziplock bag until frozen solid. Serve straight from the freezer. If they thaw, they become mushy, so don't let them sit out too long, as they do thaw quickly. Enjoy!
