Banana Ghost Pops Recipe

Halloween is such a fun time of year.  There are lots of parties, trick-or-treating excursions……and lots, and lots of candy and treats!  I personally am ok with my kids having some candy., but when we are at home I try and help them have snacks that are a bit healthier to balance it all out.  Snacks can still be sweet, but healthy at the same time!

The first step is to freeze your bananas.  I peel mine and then lay them flat on a cookie sheet.  This only takes a few hours.  Once they are frozen, cut each banana into thirds.

You will need only 3 other ingredients. Yogurt, shredded coconut and chocolate chips.  I pulsed my coconut in the food processor for just a minute to make it a little more fine.

Put a toothpick or a popsicle stick in one end of each banana.  Then dip in the yogurt and make sure you cover it all the way around and roll it in the coconut.  You could probably just use yogurt and then freeze it, but the coconut is super yummy and gives it a fun texture.

Roll it in coconut on all sides.  You can push it on with your fingers if you need to.

Once it is covered in coconut, just put 2 chocolate chips on for eyes.  You can also use raisins.  Push them in good so they will stay.  If you aren’t going to eat them right away, place them on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer.  Otherwise the banana will get all soft and mushy.

I wonder what I can use in place of the coconut ( I am allergic) and would love to have these with the kdis…

You could try, shaved white chocolate, or possibly ground almonds. It wouldn’t look exactly the same, but it is worth a try!

They are actually fancy plastic toothpicks – I got them at Hobby Lobby. And I put them in the banana after I froze it but it would be much easier to put them in before!

What a great idea! My kids loved it. We try to avoid dairy, but this calls for such a small amount, I let it slide. My son suggested smearing nut butter on the banana and then doing the coconut. Not the same look but pretty darn yummy. Thanks for this and so many other great happy kid recipes!
