These Chocolate Covered Bananas are frozen into popsicles that are so easy to make and so seriously fun. The chocolate pudding has a perfect texture once frozen, you can add sprinkles if you want, and use either paper lollipop sticks or popsicle sticks.
Prepare the pudding: 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.
Place the pudding into a shallow bowl.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Peel the bananas and cut them in half or thirds, based on the size you'd like to make them for the kids.
Put a lollipop stick into each banana piece, pressing in about 3/4 of the way in. Don't push it so far that it comes out the top!
Dip the banana into the pudding, using a spoon to help cover as much of it as you'd like. You may need to hold the banana, not the stick, to make it easier. Top with sprinkles if desired. Place onto the prepared baking sheet. Continue to finish the bananas. (You will likely have a little leftover pudding, which you can just eat!)
Freeze the bananas for 1-2 hours or overnight. Serve frozen or store in an airtight freezer bag for up to 2 weeks.
Use ripe bananas with some brown spots to ensure that the banana is nice and sweet.
Let the kids help peel the bananas and make the pudding if desired.
Make them banana pieces smaller if desired for the kids if you think they'll eat a smaller portion.
Dairy-Free: Use nondairy yogurt.
Enjoy the leftover pudding as a separate snack or freeze it into Pudding Pops.
