What you’ll need…
To make Frozen Banana Yogurt Pops, you’ll need 3 ingredients: bananas, yogurt, sprinkles, wax or parchment paper, and popsicle sticks.
From plain to strawberry or any flavor in between, all yogurt flavors work for this recipe. We chose vanilla yogurt but you may opt for blueberry or chocolate — yum!
You can also change up the toppings. We went with sprinkles because we love the colorful crunch they add. But you may want to consider granola, mini chocolate chips, crushed nuts, or puffed rice cereal. These frozen banana pops would also be yummy drizzled with chocolate syrup or peanut butter.

How to make Frozen Banana Yogurt Pops
1. Begin by peeling the bananas and cutting them in half.
2. Insert a popsicle stick into the flat bottom of each banana half.
3. Next, dip your bananas in yogurt. Use a spoon to cover the entire banana and smooth out the yogurt. Allow any excess yogurt to drip off.
4. Then, sprinkle the bananas with your choice of toppings.
5. Place the dipped and decorated bananas onto a plate or baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper.
6. Place the plate in the freezer until the yogurt has hardened — about 2 hours.
From peeling the bananas to decorating them, this is definitely a treat that kids can help make, so be sure to get your children involved in the process!

Wanna say a big thank you for all of your fab recipes, tips, and tricks. I’m so happy I discovered your blog a couple months ago. Such treasure. I’ll be coming around often.
I made these for my nieces birthday party this weekend. She loves yogurt and bananas so this was the perfect treat. The sprinkles made them look very festive and my sister liked that this is a healthy treat. The kids and adults at the party enjoyed them. I look forward to making more varieties. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

That’s lovely and delicious
these are soooooo good!
I want to make these for a school treat for a birthday. Do they only need to freeze for 2 hours or do they actually need to be stored in the freezer?
Thank you for saving the day with this idea!
They need to freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. If you aren’t serving them right away, you will need to keep them stored in the freezer until you serve them! What a great idea for a birthday treat at school!
Will these keep for a while in the freezer? I was thinking of making a big batch to have throughout the week.
Yes, they will last for 7-10 days in the freezer!
I looked on a website and saw there are different size popsicle sticks. What size is good for the weight of the banana and yogurt?
We used 6″ popsicle sticks for the recipe creation.
Hi, thanks for sharing these are so easy to make. I sure make them for my grandkids when they visit for holidays.
I would like to try drizzling or deep peanut butter. Todo this should the peanut butter be warmed up so it’s soft or how would I go about doing so?
Yes, I would warm it up in order to do that. It sounds amazing!!!
