Chocolate Banana Pops, Easy & Delicious

It’s hot here in Florida, and I’m in the mood for a cold treat.  I’m trying to eat healthy so of course I think of frozen bananas.  Many of you probably do something similar.  Freeze a ripe banana or cut pieces of a banana.  Dip in melted chocolate, roll in nuts or sprinkles and freeze again.  Simple and delicious.


We’re using Enjoy Life semisweet dark chocolate chips which are close to 70% cacao.  Check the amount of chocolate in your chips as some are as low as 29%.  I like that the chips are Soy free, Nut free, Gluten free, Dairy free, Non GMO, Vegan, and Paleo.    When eaten in moderation, semisweet chocolate can keep your brain sharp, your blood flowing and your heart healthy.   I also love that the chocolate is Fair Trade which helps support ethical working conditions and pay farmers and workers fairly.

For small children, like my friend’s grandchildren next door, I use 1/3 of a banana for a small pop that’s easier to eat. For older kids and adults use 1/2 a banana.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. It’s also very hot here in the UK at the moment and I think this would be an ideal treat for the kids (and me). I had never thought to freeze a banana but it looks like a very tasty treat #mmbc

    1. Yes it’s delicious – if you like bananas, you’ll like frozen bananas covered in chocolate.

  2. My husband would love these!

    I noticed a comment on another blog saying you were raised in East Tennessee so I had to come visit…I grew up around Cumberland Gap, Tennessee…left there when I was 19, almost 20. I have lived in Indiana ever since, except for a year and a half my hubby and I moved down there.

    1. Howdy childhood neighbor! I was raised in Oak Ridge just outside Knoxville. I left Tennessee in my twenties and came south to Florida. No more cold winters for me.

  3. You’re right, that is simple and I have so many chocolate chips leftover from cookie making. Plus I always have fast ripening bananas that I can’t eat. I used to be able to find these in the ice cream aisle in both dark and milk chocolate but they seemed to have disappeared. Thanks, Carol.

  4. These Chocolate Covered Banana Pops look amazing. The sprinkles put them over the top. Thank you for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays link party. I love to visit your blog.

  5. These look like a delicious treat – thanks for sharing your recipe with us over at the Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesday & I hope you’ll join us again next week!

  6. What a delicious, wholesome and fun summer treat, Carol! Sharing on the Hearth and Soul Facebook page later today. Thank you so much for sharing, and for being a part of Hearth and Soul. Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
