Frozen Banana Pops

Frozen Banana Pops Activity

See more activities in: Kindergarten, Snacks

Serve this delicious and nutritious frozen treat in place of the sugar-filled, nutrient-devoid alternatives. These frozen banana pops are simple enough for young children to make and so tasty they are sure to be a hit. Show your child how healthy foods can be fun to make and enjoyable to eat! Have them for dessert or as a sweet afternoon snack.

What You Need:

  • Bananas
  • Toothpicks
  • Your child's favorite yogurt
  • Plate
  • Wax paper
  • Chopped nuts or granola (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Help your child peel the bananas and remove all the strings.
  2. Slice the bananas into rounds about 1"-2" thick. Since bananas are very soft, you can even let your child cut them himself using a child-safe knife (with your supervision, of course).
  3. Have your child carefully insert a toothpick into each banana round. Have him push the toothpick in as far as it will go.
  4. Pour the yogurt into a shallow bowl.
  5. Help your child pick up a banana round by the toothpick and dip it into the yogurt. Have a spoon handy for rescuing banana rounds that have fallen in the yogurt. If you're using chopped nuts or granola, pour some onto a plate in a shallow layer and roll the yogurt-dipped banana in it.
  6. Place the yogurt-dipped banana on a plate covered with wax paper. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all the banana rounds have been dipped in yogurt. Make sure you work fairly quickly; if the fnished banans sit too long on the plate, the yogurt will begin to run off.
  7. Place the plate of bananas in the freezer. Let the banana pops freeze until the yogurt hardens, about 2-3 hours.

Remove from the freezer, and enjoy! You can also make this treat with whole bananas and kabob sticks or bamboo skewers in place of the toothpicks.
