Quick and easy frozen DOLE Banana pops, a healthier treat option for the whole family!


Delicious Frozen DOLE Banana Pops

Quarantine got you down? Do you feel like your kids ask you for a snack every 5 minutes? I get it! I was so happy we partnered with DOLE to promote their at home resources for kids during this time and stumbled upon this awesome recipe in the process. It is a much healthier snack option for the kiddos and yes Olivia considers this her ice cream treat! As always, these were taste tested and approved by both daddy and Olivia.



Ingredients (makes 6 DOLE Banana pops)


1. 3 DOLE Bananas

2. Sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, cereal or any other topping

3. 3/4-1 cup non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt or Other Flavored yogurt (We used Yoplait Go-gurt two tubes, raspberry/strawberry flavors, because that was all we had and it was a hit)

4. Popsicle sticks or cake-pop sticks (we used cake-pop sticks)



Step 1


Peel the DOLE Bananas and cut in half so there are 6 in total.


Step 2


Insert the popsicle sticks or cake-pop sticks in the bottom flat part of each banana.


Step 3


Cover each banana in yogurt. You can either roll the bananas on a plate in the yogurt or use a basting brush or small spatula to do this.



Step 4


Sprinkle the topping (sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, etc.) on each DOLE Banana. I found it easiest to hold the banana by the cake-pop stick and then sprinkle it on while twirling the banana in my hand.



Step 5


Place the bananas on a plate or tray lined with wax paper. Freeze for at least 1-2 hours and enjoy the smiling faces!

Quick and Easy DIY Valentine Ring Pop (could also work for popcorn themed Valentines)!



The Cutest DIY Valentine that will make your heart POP!

With Valentine's Day just around the corner there are so many sweet ideas for your little one's Valentines. Olivia is currently obsessed with Ring Pop rings, I mean what 5 year old isn't? Last year we made home made s'mores and Livi loved the custom tags I made. She talked this mama into making custom tags again, so I designed some cute little tags. In all honesty, it was pretty quick, and it was better than trying to write her name on each little candy bag.





Supplies:


1. Ring Pops

2. String (Pink, Red, Color of your choice)

3. Card stock to print tags (regular paper works too)

4. 1-Hole Punch

5. Fun Scissors with edge pattern



Step 1


Print the labels on card stock paper. Email us at lovecocoandbean@gmail.com for your free template.


Step 2


Cut out the labels with fun scissors.



Step 3


Take one tag and one ring pop and line them up and punch a hole at the top of both at the same time. If your hole punch isn't as sturdy you may need to do one at a time.




Step 4


Cut String and loop the string through the tag and ring pop and tie. We had an assembly line so Livi pre-cut the string and did the hole punching. Mommy cut out the tags and tied the string.




Step 5


Send your son or daughter to school with a big smile on their face and have a Happy Valentine's Day!
