Ingredients

As good as these taste, you’d never guess they’re made from just three simple ingredients: 

Ingredients for Banana Popsicles
  • Bananas: The riper the bananas, the sweeter your popsicles will be. If you want them really sweet with a strong banana flavor, go with overripe bananas or brown bananas. You can use either fresh bananas or frozen for this. If you use frozen bananas, you might have to add a little milk to get the right texture. 
  • Greek Yogurt: Not only does this create the creamiest popsicles, it packs them full of protein. This is a good-for-you snack in so many ways!
  • Honey: Honey is optional, but it adds a delightful sweetness that rivals store-bought popsicles. If you’re not a honey fan, you can omit it or replace it with maple syrup, agave nectar, or even high fructose corn syrup. 

Instructions

Step 1 | Mix it Up

In a blender or a food processor, put your bananas, greek yogurt, and honey. Blend it until you have a smooth puree that’s thick, but still pourable. If your banana mixture is too thick, you can add a little milk or almond milk to thin it out.

Step 2 | Popsicle Mold

Pour your banana mixture into your popsicle mold. This should make between 6 and 8 popsicles depending on how large your mold is. Mine made 6.

Popsicle Mold

Add the popsicle sticks to your mold.

Step 3 | Freeze

Put your easy banana popsicles into the freezer. They’ll take about 4 hours to freeze solid. 

Step 4 | Enjoy!

To enjoy your banana ice pops, run hot water over the bottom of the mold. The warm water will loosen the popsicle and allow you to pull it out without breaking it. Enjoy these cold for a deliciously healthy treat!

Tip

To keep your creamy banana popsicles from turning brown, add 1 tbsp lemon juice to the popsicle mixture. Keep in mind that riper bananas will brown more. For lighter popsicles, use less ripe bananas.

  • Chocolate Dipped Banana Popsicle: Dip your frozen popsicles in a chocolate magic shell. You can use store-bought, or try this recipe. It uses chocolate chips and coconut oil. Try dark chocolate chips for another option!
  • Peanut Butter Dipped Banana Popsicle: Add 2 tbsp peanut butter to your popsicle mixture. Once frozen, you can dip them in a peanut butter shell. Roll them in peanuts for even more peanut flavor!
  • Fruit Banana Popsicles: Add frozen strawberries, raspberries, pineapples, or mangoes to the banana mixture to create a variety of healthy popsicles. You can also add freeze-dried fruit as a mix-in for a fun little burst of flavor.
