With summer in full swing it’s nice to be able to give the kids a cold treat without loading them up on sugar. Not to mention it’s way more fun to be playing outside then spending a bunch of time inside the kitchen preparing food!
These frozen banana bites are fun to make and fun to eat. But so, so easy.
Let your kids practice their knife skills by slicing the bananas. Then use a straw to make holes. Add a sucker stick or popsicle stick if you like and you’re halfway done with the preparation…and a three-year-old can be in charge!
Frozen bananas are like dessert by themselves. They almost take on a creamy ice cream-like texture. Add a touch of chocolate for a real treat; simply pour melted chocolate in the hole. I use a kids’ medicine syringe for easy filling!
Didn’t plan ahead? No problem. The chocolate hardens almost instantly, and the bananas freeze in about ten minutes. Prepare a batch before lunch and after lunch you’ve got a fun dessert.
Something for everyone.
If you have a little one you can skip the chocolate. A frozen banana slice on a stick makes the perfect hot weather treat (or a great teether!). My one-year-old was certainly happy to help me on this project.
