Banana Pops!

Easy Banana Pops - PhotoIt’s been gloomy and cold and we wanted to have some fun! Sooo….we made chocolate and yogurt dipped Banana Pops and we want you to make some too!  These pops can come together with only 3 ingredients – Bananas, Yogurt or Chocolate and a topping!  The only downfall to these easy pops is you have to plan ahead.  The bananas need 2-3 hours to freeze. You can check out my video here on how to freeze them.  How to Make Banana Pops - Photo Yesterday we made treat pops.  We set out 3 toppings but you only need 1.  We tested out both Chocolate and Yogurt Pops.  Check out my video here if you want to see how to melt the chocolate and how we made them.

Chocolate Dipped Banana Pops - Photo This morning I made yogurt breakfast banana pops! I made them into smaller pops which are better for younger kids.  I made a video on how I made these and you can view it here.  Popsicles for breakfast are always exciting!  Who wouldn’t want a yogurt covered banana pop for breakfast??

Banana Pops are an easy healthy treat and a fun way to get creative in the kitchen with your kids! I have also included a bonus idea for a fun treat if you have leftover chocolate.  Drizzle the chocolate over pretzels and use your extra toppings to make chocolate bark!  Details are in the notes section of the recipe and at the end of this video.

Ingredients

  • 2 - 4 Bananas
  • 1 cup semi-sweet/dark chocolate chips or 1 cup vanilla yogurt or both do not use greek yogurt - see notes below

Toppings of Choice:

  • Treat pop: Sprinkles,Chocolate Chips, Chopped nuts etc….
  • Breakfast Yogurt Pops: Oats, Chopped nuts, raisins, your favorite granola

Instructions

Freeze Bananas

  • One Banana will make 2 or 4 pops:
  • Keeping the peel on cut your bananas in half and insert a popsicle stick
  • For smaller pops you can cut your banana in quarters and insert a popsicle stick in each quarter
  • Peel your banana and place on parchment paper.
  • Place the parchment paper onto a dish or small pan and place into the freezer for 2-3 hours

For Chocolate Pops

  • Pour your chocolate chips into a tall glass that can be placed in the microwave
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute, take out and stir until there are no chunks and it is smooth. If it is not smooth, microwave in 10-20 second intervals. You can burn your chocolate so be careful to do it in short increments. Every microwave is different but it took mine 1 minute + 20 seconds.
  • Working quickly dip 1 frozen banana pop completely into your chocolate and shake off any excess.
  • Quickly sprinkle your pop with your toppings of choice and place back on parchment paper
  • Repeat steps 3 & 4 with the rest of your pops
  • They will harden quickly! Serve immediately or place back into the freezer. Note if you are serving another day wrap each pop in plastic wrap and store in a sealed container or bag.

For Yogurt Pops

  • Pour your yogurt into a tall glass (it makes dipping easier)
  • Dip 1 frozen banana pop completely into your yogurt and shake off any excess.
  • Quickly sprinkle your pop with your toppings of choice and place back on parchment paper
  • Repeat steps 2 & 3 with the rest of your pops
  • Place back into the freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour to harden
  • Serve that day or wrap each pop in plastic wrap and store in a sealed container or bag.

Notes

1. Yogurt - You need regular yogurt for this to work, greek yogurt will be too thick. If you only have greek yogurt and want to try you can try and thin it out with some milk, but I have not tested this
2. Extra Chocolate - You can spread pretzels onto a sheet of parchment paper and drizzle the extra chocolate and toppings over and make a bark! Put it into the fridge to set
3. Extra Yogurt - you can save to eat or use for smoothies
4. Bananas - if you only have 2 bananas you will have some excess chocolate and yogurt but you need the full cup for easy dipping
