Watermelon and banana popsicles

Frozen banana popsicles

The classic combination of chocolate and banana doesn’t require much effort to taste great. This no-bake frozen treat is easy to make and easier to eat. Just stick it.


  • 8 bananas, peeled
  • 32oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • assorted toppings: chopped peanuts or almonds, toasted coconut, granola or oatmeal, dried cranberries


  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Insert a popsicle stick into one end of each banana, leaving enough of the stick exposed for a handle. Place bananas on the baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
  2. In a double-boiler, melt the chocolate with the butter, stirring until shiny.
  3. On several plates, arrange the topping ingredients, forming an assembly line.
  4. One at a time, dip a banana in the chocolate, coating completely. Use a spoon or knife if needed.
  5. Roll bananas in desired toppings. Quickly transfer back to baking sheet and return to freezer.
  6. Once completely frozen, bananas can be stored in the freezer in an airtight container between layers of wax paper.
  7. Makes 8 individual servings.


Semisweet chocolate isn’t your only option for coating the bananas. Try dark or milk chocolate for varied colour and taste.

Bananas are an awesome after-sport snack. Their high levels of potassium help support healthy muscle development.
