Banana (no ice cream) Popsicles

WOWWWW!!! I felt like I hit the jack pot when I found this recipe.  I am a fan of bananas but I don’t like them straight up.  On greek yogurt, mixed in my oats, on a rice cake or protein pancake or in a shake are the ways I usually enjoy my bananas UNTIL..I saw this post on Chocolate Covered Katie for Breakfast Banana Pops!

Here is her original recipe with my notes

Breakfast Banana Pops

(2 bananas makes 4 pops)

  • bananas (Or try this idea with strawberries, pineapple, etc.) – I used bananas
  • yogurt of choice (Wholesoy, Almond Dream, Silk, etc.) – I use 0% Greek Yogurt
  • granola of choice, or crushed cookies, or even S’mores Graham Crackers -  used Kashi Granola
  • add-on ideas: mini chocolate chips, coconut shreds, cinnamon sugar, raisins, etc. – I used shredded unsweetened coconut and melted peanut butter
  • popsicle sticks or silverware to insert in the bananas

Procedure: Pour granola into a very shallow dish or plate. Peel bananas, cut in half, and insert popsicle sticks. Dip into yogurt (or coat with a knife), then roll into granola and add-ons. (I stuck the chips on by hand, after rolling in the granola.) Place on a parchment or wax-lined tray and freeze. Keep uneaten pops in the freezer.

I rolled my bananas in greek yogurt then added the granola and shredded unsweetened coconut.  Last but not least I drizzled some melted natural peanut butter on them before putting them in the freezer.  This is a child friendly delicious recipe!  This will be a go to for me when I am in the mood for a popsicle.
