Bananas: use ripe bananas, but make sure they aren’t overly ripe or they will be too soft to hold onto the stick.
Chocolate: you can use semi-sweet or dark.
Coconut oil: for the melted chocolate to have a thinner consistency, to properly coat the bananas.
Peanut butter: you’ll need a natural creamy peanut butter that is thin enough to drizzle over top.
Popsicle or craft sticks: these are used to place the bananas on and use as a popsicle stick.

How to Make Frozen Chocolate-Covered Bananas

Extra Tips for Success

Bananas should be ripe – but firm: you want the banana pops to taste sweet, so make sure they are ripe. But if they’re too ripe – too many brown spots – they may be too soft to stay properly on the stick.

Use natural peanut butter or add coconut oil: in order to drizzle the peanut butter, you’ll need natural nut butter. If your peanut butter is thicker, you can warm it in the microwave with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Stir together completely and drizzle.

How long do they keep? These bananas should keep for about 2-3 weeks. Place in a freezer-friendly ziplock bag and keep bananas stored in the freezer.
