This is one of those family favorites that for whatever reason I’ve never taken photos so I could post about it. Well, that ends today! You guys, these frozen yogurt banana dippers are the most requested snack out our house and that includes us adults. We all love them! They are similar to the frozen yogurt banana pops, but so much easier to eat!
We also make sure to use greek yogurt so we get a little extra protein and less sugar, but you can totally use whatever kind of yogurt you want. These are so yummy if we need a snack on a hot day or even an after dinner treat as they remind us of ice cream! Which brings me to my next point! Our kids love that we can go to the store and pick out whatever flavor of yogurt and turn this simple snack into something even more awesome! So you could do a strawberry banana flavor, caramel yogurt, blackberry pie etc! It’s so fun!
And the best part? The kids can do it all for me. I slice up the bananas, let the girls gently dry them off a little with a napkin, and dip them in the yogurt then place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for freezing. If I’m lazy then I use my already sliced and frozen bananas that we normally use for smoothies and dip them.
Oh!! And I’ve been so excited I forgot to mention something awesome! These are fantastic in our green smoothies (or just regular shakes or smoothies!) We love that it thickens the drink without adding ice which gives a looser texture, and it’s easy to pop in without opening bananas or yogurt and not using all of it then you have to store the leftovers. You know what I mean? Anyway, it’s pretty much awesome and I hope you all go pin crazy with it!
- 1 small bunch of bananas, peeled and sliced in chunks
- Greek Yogurt-any flavor, in a bowl
- Place parchment paper on a plate, cutting board or baking sheet. Dry off the banana slices or use already frozen bananas. Carefully dip the bananas in the yogurt, use a fork to roll and gently lift the banana chunks out of the yogurt and onto the pan. Allow to freeze for at least 1 hour, or overnight. Remove the bananas and place in a ziploc bag. See note.
