If you love the taste of chocolate and bananas, then you are going to love this recipe! My Frozen Chocolate Banana Pops are a a simple and easy way to enjoy a healthy, delicious sweet treat! As the weather begins to warm up, these are the perfect way to cool down and ease into the spring and summer months!
Friends, is there anything more nostalgic than a chocolate covered banana?! When I was a kid, my mom would make these for me in the summer time as a healthier alternative to a popsicle or ice cream. And back then, I LOVED them, especially when they were covered in sprinkles like mine are.
Now, I love to make these frozen chocolate banana pops for my boys to enjoy during the warmer months. As they run in the backyard and play, or take breaks during baseball practice, I love to give them one of these pops as a sweet treat to help them cool down and get some energy back!
Bananas are one of my favorite ingredients to work with, for two reasons: 1. They are SUPER sweet and full of natural sugars, and 2. They are super healthy! Bananas are rich in potassium, antioxidants, Vitamin C, and even fiber, so they keep you full for a while.
I think it’s safe to say that when we think of bananas, most of us automatically think of the quintessential “grab-and-go” breakfast food, but they’re also such a versatile ingredient!
From my Chocolate Cinnamon Banana Bread to my Yogurt Banana Pops, bananas are an integral part of many of my recipes, and I love getting to work with them!
This recipe only requires 4 ingredients! It is so simple and easy, and perfect to throw together in mere minutes.
Making these banana pops could not be easier! Simply start by peeling your bananas and slicing the bottoms off of each one. Then, place a popsicle stick in each one, about halfway through. If you don’t have any popsicle sticks, that’s okay! You can still make this recipe without them.
Next, line them up on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or plate, and freeze them for approximately 2 hours, or until they’re frozen.
Then, in a microwave-safe bowl, add in the chocolate chips and the coconut oil. Microwave them together in 2 or 3, 30-second increments, being sure to stir the chocolate in-between. You can also do this on the stove using the double-boiler method, if preferred.
Once the chocolate is fully melted, dip each frozen banana into the chocolate and then top with sprinkles as desired. Place the bananas back onto the baking sheet, and then freeze them until you’re ready to eat! That’s it!
