These healthy chocolate covered banana pops are made with just four ingredients. Simple, refreshing and the perfect cool and creamy treat for summer.
This recipe brings me back! Chocolate covered banana pops were the ultimate treat as a child and they’re just as tasty as an adult! The best part is that these banana pops are super simple to throw together and the perfect recipe to bring your kiddos into the kitchen to help with.
I have a bit of a sweet tooth (which has heightened since becoming pregnant) so I always try to have healthy treats available so I can reach for an upgraded dessert instead of driving to the closest ice cream shop.
These chocolate covered bananas fit the bill and are perfect for these hot summer days when I could easily eat a pint of ice cream…
Ingredients in Chocolate Covered Banana Pops
chocolate chips – you can use dark chocolate or low sugar chocolate if needed
coconut oil – this helps thin the melted chocolate, making the bananas easier to dip
chopped almonds or shredded coconut – fun toppings for a little crunch and decoration
How to Make Chocolate Covered Banana Pops
To prep, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This prevents the chocolate from sticking to the pan and will make clean up super simple! Peel your bananas (a great job for kiddos) and cut each banana in half. Insert a popsicle stick or bamboo skewer into each piece of banana to make a banana popsicle. Arrange bananas on the prepared baking sheet and place in the freezer. Your bananas need to be frozen before moving on to the next step!
