This yummy frozen banana popsicle recipe is super simple and makes the perfect sweet summer treat for parties, barbecues or just to enjoy with the fam!
Makes 12 banana popsicles
- 6 Bananas
- 12 Popsicle sticks
- 1/2 cup sprinkles (at least)
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- Tall jar or glass to dip (we used a mason jar!)
- Parchment paper
- Cookie sheet/pan that you can fit in your freezer
Optional additional toppings:
- Peanut butter chips (melted)
- White chocolate chips (melted)
- Toasted coconut
Step 1: Peel the bananas, cut in half, and then put a popsicle stick into the cut side of the banana. Repeat with all your bananas, and put them into the freezer until frozen (at least 2 hours).
Step 2: After your bananas are frozen, carefully melt the chocolate with the coconut oil. I like to do this in the microwave, put it in for 30 sec. take it out and stir for 30 seconds, then put it back for 15 sec. Repeat until the chocolate is totally smooth.
Step 3: Pour the melted chocolate into a tall jar/cup. Holding the popsicle stick, dip the banana into the chocolate. Let the excess chocolate quickly drip off.
Step 4: Put sprinkles in a shallow dish and quickly put your dipped banana into the sprinkles. You have to work quickly because the chocolate will freeze. Either enjoy right away, or put back on the cookie sheet and back into the freezer.
BONUS: Try other toppings for your banana popsicle: toss your banana into peanuts, or coconut. Sprinkle with nuts and then a drizzle of white chocolate. Get creative. Crushed cookies would also be delicious!
You can keep your banana popsicles for up to 10 days in the freezer in a plastic bag, or airtight container.
