It is believed the first frozen banana stand selling frozen banana dipped in chocolate and nuts opened in 1940 in Newport Beach, and idea taken from the 1933 Worlds Fair in Chicago. This easy treat doesn’t inquire any cooking, a microwave to melt the chocolate is all you need.

How To Make Frozen Bananas

  1. Cut the banana in half lengthwise, then in half to make four quarters. This will make the perfect sized treat making them easy to eat and dip into chocolate.
  2. Insert the sticks and freeze.
  3. Once frozen melt the chocolate in a mug in the microwave in 30 second increments then coat the bananas with chocolate.
  4. Top with nuts or sprinkles and re-freeze until ready to eat.

Frozen Banana Pops are such a fun summer treat for the kids and grown-ups too!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • colored sprinkles, optional

You will need:

  • 4 popsicle sticks

Instructions

  • Cut the banana in half lengthwise, then in half to make four quarters.
  • Insert popsicle sticks into bananas and freeze on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  • When the bananas are frozen, fill a coffee mug with chocolate.
  • Melt chocolate in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until the chocolate is melted and soft.
  • Dip the bananas one at a time into the chocolate, scraping off the excess chocolate from the back of the banana, and place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  • Quickly add the sprinkles or toppings on the rounded side before the chocolate hardens (you have to work quickly here).
  • Place on wax paper and return to the freezer until frozen and ready to eat.
  • Eat frozen and enjoy!!
  • Note: Adding a little oil to the chocolate helps thin the chocolate and therefore you will use less on each popsicle. You will need enough chocolate to dip the bananas, but you will be left with extra chocolate in the end (chocolate covered strawberries anyone?)

Notes

Nutrition based on 0.5 oz of chocolate per banana. If you use a large banana, you will use more chocolate and will need to adjust.

  1. Hi! When do you add the oil? I noticed it in the ingredients but not in the instructions. Can you revise to include please?

    • Under “notes” – Adding a little oil to the chocolate helps thin the chocolate and therefore you will use less on each popsicle.

  2. How many Smart Points are these?

  3. Would there be any substitute for chocolate?

  4. Oil is super fattening, and not nessecary

  5. lol careful, they have a tendency to wind up looking phallic 😛

  6. A quick tip…if you want to increase the chocolate so it goes farther or so you use less, mix in a tablespoon or two or fat free vanilla Greek yogurt. The taste is still great and the calories are a little less.

  7. It was really fun to make these with the kiddos and boy did they love licking the coffee cup afterwards. They are addictive. I think next time I will use chopped pecans and other toppings but the sprinkles worked for the kiddos.

  8. I'm going to try them tonight. Aldi had banana's at 0.10/lb.. so we have tons!!

  9. I used Bakers and forgot to add the oil. Still worked just fine! So good! Thank you!

  10. I used baby bananas since I happened to have them already and they were the perfect size! I also used a Trader Joe's dark chocolate bar (they come in a pack of 3) and didn't have the melting problems others had. I think it's because it's a really smooth chocolate to begin with. Great snack idea!!

  11. Thank you so much for all of the wonderful "skinny" recipies. Thanks, too for the old points count. It keeps me from pulling out the pt. slide.

    Can't wait to try these!

  12. Made these tonight. Mine certainly didn't turn out as pretty but sure were tasty. Forgot to buy pop sticks so used a combo of skewers and take out chopsticks (don't judge) and it got the job done. Also used dark chocolate chips instead. Amazing for such a hot day!

  13. We've made these for years in my house. I use a small piece of parafin wax instead of oil, it makes the chocolate smooth and thin and helps it harden—plus no fat or calories. I usually don't quarter the banana just half the banana. To keep it skinny I dip one side of the banana only.

  14. Made these for the 4th of July. So yummy— everyone LOVED them!! I made half of mine with the chocolate and the other half dipped in strawberry yogurt. Both were wonderful and the sprinkles made them look fun!

  15. I also had trouble with the Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips. It turned very hard and there was no going back to the smooth melted chocolate I had at first. Hmm I guess I will also try using bakers chocolate next time.

  16. Those are SO cute!!!! What a delicious treat for the Fourth of July. 😀

  17. Did anyone mention to NOT put the coffee can in the microwave? Use another container or you might set your house on fire!
