Refresh your senses with these Banana Popsicles, an easy summery dessert made with only 3 ingredients. Just blend, pour, and freeze!
For the banana lovers in the house, these are the epitome of banana popsicles. They have just a handful of ingredients, and all of them serve one purpose – to highlight that delicious banana flavor!
Bonus: they can be made with different flavors depending on which add ons you’d like to use, with options including cocoa powder, cinnamon, and vanilla!
Since they last well in the freezer (3 months!), this is a great recipe for bulk-prepping for later.
Ingredients in banana popsicles
With only 3 ingredients required, these make an extremely easy and simple dessert. Just grab a few bananas, honey (the best sweetener), and milk!
- Bananas: First up, you’ll need 4 medium-sized bananas. The riper they are, the sweeter your popsicles will be.
- Honey: Next, 2 tablespoons of honey will be used to sweeten the recipe. You can also use maple syrup or agave nectar if preferred.
- Milk: Finally, include ½ cup of your favorite milk, whether cow’s milk or a dairy-free option (almond and soy milk are both great here).
- Optional: Select your optional flavoring with choices including cocoa powder, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Add to taste!
How to make Frozen Banana Popsicles
Making these banana popsicles is an easy 5 minute task that will leave you with healthy, sweet treats after only a couple hours of freezing!
- Blend the ingredients: Combine all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth, adding optional ingredients as desired.
- Freeze for 4 hours: Pour the batter into molds, leaving a little space at the top for them to expand. Insert sticks and freeze until they harden, at least 4 hours.
- Serve and enjoy: Run the mold under warm water for a few seconds to loosen up the popsicle, and then remove from the mold.
Storage and Flavor Tips
Leftover popsicles can be kept in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
For a sweeter popsicle, wait for your bananas to get extra ripe before blending. The more ripe, the sweeter they taste!
Go the extra chocolatey route by sprinkling in mini chocolate chips before freezing. Just pour your banana mixture into each mold, then sprinkle in a few chocolate chips!
