I love sharing dinners and desserts with you, but I also like sharing silly, fun recipes like Bird’s Nest Cupcakes, Bacon, Egg and Toast Cups, and these frozen banana pops! I know if these were spread out at a summer party, they would be the first thing I grab! Er, especially since I’m problematic with sprinkles.

What? They make everything taste like a rainbow.

Swirled in melted dark chocolate that hardens in the fridge, these little frozen banana bites are quick, easy and ready to be ravaged with all kinds of toppings! For mine, I chose coconut flakes, chopped nuts and sprinkles, but coat yours with whatever you like! Try ‘em with your favorite crunchy cereal, mini chocolate chips or candy coated sunflower seeds. You can even use yogurt as the base instead of chocolate!

All you need to do is grab a handful of bananas or other dense fruit, chop them up bite-sized and freeze them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once they’re firm, send your chocolate for a spin in the microwave and stir until it’s silky smooth. If your chocolate isn’t getting the right consistency, add in a little butter or shortening.

Bathe your banana bites in the warm chocolate, shake off the excess, and coat those little cuties ‘til your heart’s content in any kind of tasty toppings! They’re like a party in your mouth, I tell ya. And bonus: They’re not going to send your kid into a bouncing-off-the-ceiling sugar coma. Unless the kid eats ‘em all. Yikes.

Frozen Chocolate Banana Pops

Frozen Chocolate Banana Pops

Yield: 18 pops


  • Toothpicks
  • 3 firm-ripe bananas, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 6 ounces 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon sprinkles, coconut, nuts, or any desired topping


  1. Insert a toothpick into each banana piece. Arrange bananas, toothpick side up, on a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate chips in 10 second increments, stirring between each until melted and smooth. Working quickly, dip each banana piece in chocolate, shake off excess, and cover with desired topping. Chocolate should set quickly, but if necessary, freeze or refrigerate pops to harden coating before serving.
  3. Store in the refrigerator up to 1 day.
  4. Enjoy!

  32. These are so adorable! Makes me wish I had kids to make them for…but I guess making them for myself will have to do :)

  71. 5 stars
    Very cute…love these! I’m a banana fiend, so this would be one of the first things I grabbed too!!

  72. These look like perfect little sweet snacks! So cute too!

  73. Georgia, these pops are so fun! A great idea to make these healthy little treats.

  74. 5 stars
    I love this idea! They’re so cute and I’m sure people would be super impressed by them. If I didn’t have this terrible banana allergy I imagine I’d be off to the kitchen now to make these. I know you said you can use other fruit, but I can’t think of any that would work as well as banana. Oh well. I love this post. :)

  75. Before you dip them, freeze the banana pieces for about 2 hours. Once they’re dipped, they only need about 30 minutes refrigerated to harden. Freezing for too long will make them difficult to eat.

  76. 5 stars
    I love these – i have never made them myself thou, but i am really keen to try! How long do you freeze them for, a couple hours?

  77. Anonymous says:

    Can you make these a few days ahead and freeze them untill you need them?

  78. You can make them 1 day ahead, freeze, then thaw in the refrigerator shortly before serving.

  79. And yet another fun thing to do with the bananas that I can’t seem to eat fast enough!
