Health Benefits Of Bananas

Sometimes, in naturally minded circles, bananas get a bad rap

But, in moderation, a banana can be a great healthy choice!

Here are a few health benefits of bananas:

1. They contain natural their own natural sugars (so no additional sugar is usually necessary when using them in recipes)

2. Bananas are a great source of:

  • potassium
  • magnesium
  • antioxidants
  • Vitamin C
  • B vitamins
  • fiber
  1. And we can’t forget that they are a convenient option for a grab-and-go breakfast or snack and have their own packaging! (I would recommend pairing a banana with a source of protein and fat for a well-rounded meal or snack though).

Thankfully, my girls love bananas! Well, they love all fruit actually.

Why am I thankful you ask?

Because banana yogurt pops (or other frozen banana recipes) are a great way to enjoy a summer treat without eating popsicles full of artificial colors or flavors, or other sugar-filled junk food options.

This way, I feel good that they get to enjoy a healthy summer treat, and they are happy because they can eat a delicious fruit pop that they help create.

It’s a win for everyone!

Ingredients For Healthy Banana Yogurt Popsicles

Ready to get started on this fun home or school treat? It’s so simple, there is no food processor, blender, or popsicle molds necessary. Just a few simple tools and you are ready to get started!

Necessary Tools

  1. a bowl
  2. a spoon
  3. popsicle sticks
  4. parchment paper (wax paper works too)
  5. baking sheet

Basic Ingredients

  • Bananas
    Look for bananas that are firm, but ripe. Mushy bananas will not work well for this because the stick won’t stay or the whole thing will fall apart.
  • Yogurt
    Choose whatever yogurt you prefer. Greek yogurt is a popular choice because it is thick and has a good amount of protein. You can also choose flavored yogurt, plain yogurt, or even homemade!
    *Be aware though, while homemade yogurt is the healthiest, it can also be the thinnest and may not be as easy to spoon onto the banana making the process a little more difficult (but still tasty!).
  • Granola
    Granola adds a deliciously crunchy taste and texture to a popsicle but is totally optional if you would rather not include it.
  • Additional Optional Toppings
    Feel free to add any toppings that you’d like: berries, chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, cinnamon, a drizzle of honey, or peanut butter … the possibilities are endless!

Ingredients And Measurements

  • 3 bananas, halved
  • 6 popsicle sticks
  • 1 cup greek yogurt (you can also use plain or vanilla if you choose)
  • ¼ cup strawberries, diced small
  • ¼ cup blueberries, halved
  • ¼ cup honey nut granola

Now, this is the basic recipe that we used, but the beauty of this recipe is that it is so customizable!

If you would rather make your frozen treats differently, that’s ok!

You can pick the taste or flavor you like most, and go from there.

You can even mix and match toppings or yogurt flavors if you prefer.

The sky is the limit 🙂

FAQs About Banana Yogurt Pops

Have a few questions about this delicious frozen treat recipe? No problem! I’ll try to answer them here….

1. How long do you freeze the bananas and yogurt?

To make sure that the popsicles are frozen and ready to eat it will take about 3 hours for them to freeze and be properly set.

2. How long are yogurt popsicles good for?

Because these healthy popsicles are different than what you typically buy at the store, we have found that the pops are best if eaten within 2 weeks. For best freshness and storage, after they are frozen, you can remove them from the baking sheet, and store them in a freezer bag or other sealed container.

3. What size popsicle stick is best?

If you are shopping for supplies you may have noticed that there are different-sized sticks. We have used a few different sizes but the one we found worked the best for this recipe was the 6 in. size.
