Anything on a stick is fun- so make a cool and refreshing snack this summer with bananas and your favorite toppings. These pops are a great way to use extra bananas and get children helping in the kitchen.

Ingredients:

3 large bananas

1 carton low-fat Greek or regular flavored yogurt

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

Popsicle sticks

Garnishes: (optional)

Dry cereal or granola

Crushed graham crackers

Toasted shredded coconut

Chopped nuts

Colored sprinkles

Chopped dried or fresh fruit

Directions:

1. Peel and cut each banana into four chunks. Insert a Popsicle stick into each banana chunk. Place on a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper and freeze for about 30 to 60 minutes.

2. Remove the bananas from the freezer and dip, one banana at a time, into either the yogurt or melted chocolate, making sure the banana is completely covered. Roll or sprinkle the coated banana in a garnish, if desired. The finished bananas can be eaten immediately or placed back on the baking sheet and frozen.
