Ingredients

  • 3 bananas, peeled
  • 1-2 cup vanilla yogurt (see notes)
  • 1 tbsp mini and regular chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet
  • Cut the banans in half at a slight diagonal.
  • Thread the straw, lollipop stick or popsicle stick into the base of the banana until it almost reaches the top and feels secure.
  • Place the bananas on the baking sheet, and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Pour the yogurt into a tall glass. You want to be able to dip the entire banana into the yogurt. Dip each banana into the yogurt and place back on the baking sheet. Gently press the mini chocolate chips into the top of the banana for the ghost's eyes. Then press the regular size chocolate chips below the eyes for the ghost's mouth. Or get creative with whichever configuration you or your kiddos want;)
  • Return the baking sheet to the freezer and freeze for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.

Notes

Age: 1-3 years watch them eat the banana or cut into smaller pieces. 
Notes on Yogurt: I used a vanilla yogurt for these banana pops, but you can also use plain yogurt that is sweetened with maple syrup or honey. For a dairy-free option, use any plant-based yogurt you prefer - almond, oat, cashew, etc. You may need to use more or less yogurt depending on how big of glass you use. 
Storage: you can store these in an air-tight container for up to 2 months in the freezer.
