Frozen Bananas

We’re bananas for these cool summer treats! Frozen Bananas are one of our all-time favorite boardwalk delights. These naturally sweet frozen pops are the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer’s day. And all you really need is one magical ingredient! Bananas are packed with potassium and vitamin K, important nutrients for your heart and kidneys. And when they’re frozen, these tropical fruits develop a smooth, creamy texture that tastes just like ice cream! We love them the old fashioned way dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with nuts, but there are no rules here. Have fun adding your favorite toppings!

Hint: To keep your treats looking lovely, let the toppings harden for a few minutes in the freezer before covering with the plastic wrap.

  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Grown-up steps
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the bananas in half across the middle to make 4 pieces.
  2. Gently wedge a popsicle stick into the flat end of each banana piece.
  3. Lay the bananas on the baking sheet, cover, and freeze until firm, about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir and heat again, 30 seconds at a time, until the chocolate is melted. Stir well, and let the chocolate cool slightly.
  5. Take the bananas out of the freezer. Dip each banana pop into the melted chocolate and quickly sprinkle on the toppings of your choice.
  6. Carefully place the banana pops back on the tray. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until the chocolate is firm and the fruit is frozen through, about 2 hours. Enjoy your cool treats!
