Summer is here! It’s time to play in the pool and have popsicles! Anybody can be a kid again in the summertime, right? I love putting my freezer to good use in warm weather. I’m a frozen snack addict. However, not all frozen treats are healthy and I like to keep things healthy! That’s why I’m in love with these frozen yogurt banana pops!
Bananas are a wonderful fruit and the taste amazing when frozen. Trust me on this one, we freeze a lot of bananas in our house! Yogurt is full of beneficial probiotics that will help your body stay healthy. Add in a few healthy toppings and these pops are perfect for everyone!
It doesn’t matter what type of yogurt you use for these pops. I do recommend that you use real yogurt and not the full of sugar stuff. Remember, the great thing about these is that they are healthy! You can use homemade yogurt or store bought yogurt, plain yogurt, flavored yogurt, or even greek yogurt!
As for toppings, get creative! I used whatever I have around the house so we’ve added chia seeds, sunflower seeds, nuts, coconut… but the possibilities are endless. You could also add oats, granola, raisins, cacao nibs, or dried fruit.
Frozen Yogurt Banana Pops
1 cup yogurt
Toppings of your choice (some ideas are chocolate chips, shredded coconut, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, crushed fruit – the possibilities are endless!)
Peel bananas and cut into halves.
Insert a popsicle stick into each banana half.
Place banana onto a freezer safe cookie sheet – make sure it’s non-stick either naturally or with parchment paper.
Place bananas into the freezer for about an hour.
Take bananas out of the freezer and coat in yogurt. My preferred method is to put the yogurt into a skinny cup and dip the bananas into the cup.
Coat the yogurt covered bananas in the toppings of your choice.
Place banana pops back on the freezer cookie tray and freeze for 30 more minutes.
Now eat! You can also store any remaining banana pops in freezer bags.
