A little fruity, a little healthy, this quick and easy recipe for Frozen Banana Pops fits the bill! It’s a fun and tasty recipe kids can make themselves.
Frozen Banana Pops
Making this yummy treat is easy and fun!
Even toddlers can help you to create a treat they’ll love.
And it’s not totally unhealthy, either, with Greek yogurt and a banana!
Kids Can Cook!
The kitchen is an awesome spot to start making memories with the kids.
Even when they’re still small.
Toddlers can manage to pour cereal in a bowl, roll (or dip) a banana in yogurt, and roll it in cereal.
The hardest part will be convincing them to put them in the freezer for an hour or two to actually freeze them!
You know, though, you CAN serve them NOT frozen.
They’d then become simply “banana pops” instead of FROZEN banana pops.
And really, there’s nothing wrong with that.

Where to Begin
Start with a simple ingredient list:
Vanilla Greek Yogurt
Then follow the simple directions.
Cut the bananas
Put the yogurt on a plate and roll the bananas to coat them.
Roll them in cereal.
We used Fruity Pebbles to give this yummy treat a fruity flavor.
Cereals like Rice Krispies will have the same crunch, but might not be as sweet.
Your preference, dietary restrictions, etc. will determine which cereal is best for your pops.
(The Fruity Pebbles make the banana pops colorful and appetizing for little ones, too!)
Now put them in the freezer for and hour or two.
And there you have it – Frozen Banana Pops, ready to devour, share, and enjoy!

For a variation on this recipe, roll the bananas in the yogurt then into chopped nuts, coconut, granola or mini chocolate chips.
Another version: Dip the bananas in chocolate instead of yogurt, use sprinkles, nuts or coconut and you have these:
