Quick and easy frozen DOLE Banana pops, a healthier treat option for the whole family!
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)
Peel the DOLE Bananas and cut in half so there are 6 in total.
Insert the popsicle sticks or cake-pop sticks in the bottom flat part of each banana.
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.
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.
Place the bananas on a plate or tray lined with wax paper. Freeze for at least 1-2 hours and enjoy the smiling faces!
