Chocolate Covered Banana Pops

INGREDIENTS

Add the avocado, yogurt, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla to a blender. Blend on low speed until combined, increasing the speed a little to make a smooth pudding. Stop and scrape down the sides of the blender if needed.

STEP 1

Place pudding in a shallow bowl and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

STEP 2

Peel the bananas and cut them in half or thirds, based on the size you’d like to make them for the kids.

STEP 3.

Put a lollipop stick into each banana piece, pressing in about ¾ of the way in.

STEP 4.

Dip the banana into the pudding, using a spoon to help cover as much of it as you’d like.

STEP 5.

Top with sprinkles if desired.

STEP 5.

Freeze the bananas for 1-2 hours or overnight. Serve frozen or store in an airtight freezer bag for up to 1 week.
