Frozen Banana Pops with Yogurt and Peanut Butter

You know it’s summer vacation when the temps start to climb and the ice cream trucks are chiming in the neighborhood every night. Much to my boys’ dismay, we don’t hail the driver over as regularly as they wish but that doesn’t mean we don’t get to enjoy frozen treats.

Frozen Banana Pops with Vanilla Yogurt and Peanut Butter - an easy frozen treat recipe

Instead of relying on the overly priced, highly processed packaged treats, we love making our own homemade frozen banana pops dipped in vanilla Greek yogurt and drizzled with creamy peanut butter. 

Frozen Banana Pops with Greek Yogurt and Peanut Butter

Made with just three simple ingredients, this frozen sweet treat is healthy enough to eat for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Protein packed Greek yogurt, nutrient-rich bananas and creamy natural peanut butter provide the perfect balance of energy without the usual post-ice-cream-truck sugar crash.

Frozen Yogurt Banana Pops - a healthy frozen treat recipe

Ideal for making ahead of time, simply wrap each one individually in plastic wrap, stash in the freezer and enjoy for up to three months. The best part? You don’t need to have any cash on hand or chase a truck down the street to enjoy these frozen banana pops.

No forks required.

Ingredients
 

  • 4 large bananas (peeled)
  • 2 cups vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 4 wooden popsicle sticks

Instructions
 

  • Cut each banana in half and carefully insert the bottom of each with a wooden popsicle stick, about 1/3 of the way into the banana. Place bananas on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze bananas until partially frozen, about 30 minutes.
  • Place the vanilla yogurt in a tall pint glass and carefully dip each partially frozen banana into the yogurt to coat leaving 1/2 inch at the bottom of the banana uncoated with yogurt. Line yogurt-coated bananas back on the parchment paper and freeze until completely firm, about 1 hour.
  • Next, microwave the peanut butter until smooth and creamy, about 30-45 seconds. Drizzle peanut butter evenly over frozen yogurt coated bananas then place on the baking sheet to freeze once last time. Freeze until peanut butter is firm, about 30 minutes.
  • Enjoy immediately or wrap each banana in plastic wrap and store in freezer for up to 3 months.

    What a great idea! I’d probably like them better with chocolate rather than peanut butter. I love that these would be naturally sweet and they wouldn’t have an overwhelming amount of sugar the way commercial ice cream does.

      Yes chocolate is a great idea – I think I’m going to try that next!
