Nourish PA: Frozen Banana Yogurt Pops, 2 Ways

There’s something about a frozen banana’s texture that’s so lovely: It’s creamy and fudgy, with the perfect amount of sweetness. If you’ve ever enjoyed frozen banana pops sold at the beach or at carnivals, then you’ll be pleased to know that they are so easy to make at home!

These frozen banana yogurt pops are a great way to use a bunch of bananas that are slightly past their prime — small soft spots or bruises are covered with creamy yogurt dip and sweet toppings. Sweet and colorful, these pops are a healthier alternative to ice cream pops and other sugary frozen desserts. To mix up the flavors, use different flavors of yogurt, and any other toppings you might like. Some other tasty ideas include: peach yogurt with granola, strawberry yogurt with chopped nuts, or lemon yogurt with shredded coconut!

Frozen Banana Pops


  • 6 ripe bananas
  • 12 popsicle sticks


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Halve and peel bananas and insert popsicle sticks into each banana half on the wider end, creating 12 banana popsicles. Lay popsicles on the baking sheet and place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Pink Party Pops


  • 3/4 cup strawberry yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon milk (if needed)
  • 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, finely chopped
  • Pink or white sprinkles of choice (optional)


  1. Place strawberry yogurt in a bowl. If the yogurt is thick, add 1 tablespoon milk to thin (more if needed).
  2. Dip the bananas in the strawberry yogurt, using a spoon to coat each banana evenly. Allow excess yogurt to drip off, then place on the baking sheet. Add sprinkles and/or frozen raspberries .
  3. Place bananas in the freezer for at least 3 hours, or overnight.

Peanut Butter Pops with Chocolate Drizzle


  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. In a bowl, add vanilla yogurt, peanut butter and milk. Mix until smooth.
  2. In a second microwave-safe bowl, add oil and chocolate chips. Microwave about 1 minute, stopping every 15 seconds to stir, until chocolate is melted.
  3. Dip the bananas in the peanut butter yogurt mixture, using a spoon to coat each banana evenly. Again, allow excess yogurt to drip off and then place on the baking sheet. Using a spoon, drizzle bananas with melted chocolate.
  4. Place bananas in the freezer for at least 3 hours, or overnight.
