Frozen Banana Pops

Frozen Banana Pops

My kids love frozen stuff so I often give them frozen snacks: frozen peas, corn, yoghurt covered blueberries and frozen yoghurt bites.  I also do frozen bananas and these are a massive hit with my kids (me too!). Delicious!

What you need

Paddle Pop Sticks

Bananas

Yoghurt (or melted chocolate)

Sprinkles: coconut, 100’s & 1000’s, chocolate hail, crushed biscuit

Baking paper & tray 

Method

It’s easy but a bit messy.

Frozen Banana Pops

1. Prepare the working area first. Put about half a cup of vanilla or other flavoured yoghurt into a bowl. Then put sprinkles on smaller plates.  I used three different sprinkle toppings (on separate plates).  I found it best to freeze the bananas on a metal baking tray covered in baking paper so I got that ready too, so I could put the finished pops directly on the tray once dipped.  A large plastic container could be used to freeze the pops too.

2. Peel bananas and cut in half.  

3. Press the paddle pop stick deep into the flat base of the banana.

4. Cover the banana in yoghurt by dipping the banana into the bowl and rolling. A teaspoon is useful to cover any bare bits.

5. Easiest way to cover the pops in sprinkles is to gently rest the yoghurt covered banana on a bed of sprinkles and then instead of rolling the banana in the mix, simply sprinkle over the top and sides to cover.

6. Place all banana pops on a tray covered in baking paper and freeze for a couple of hours.

Variations:

  • Use melted chocolate instead of yoghurt (not as healthy though). With the chocolate, you can either eat it at room temperature (once the chocolate hardens) or freeze – both ways are yummy!
  • More sprinkle ideas: milo, crushed biscuits.

    I love the chocolate and sprinkles idea. I reckon my 2 boys would really like that. Where did you find your paddle pop sticks from? I also tried frozen grapes the other day for the first time (plain) – amazing!!!

      You can get them from all kinds of places. Craft shops, supermarkets, discount stores, places like BIG W, KMART etc.
