Enjoy a Refreshing (+ Healthy) Treat With This Dark Chocolate Banana Pops Recipe

This dessert is packed with natural sugars, nutrients and antioxidants!

Looking for a way to cool down on a hot summer day without sacrificing on flavor or nutrition? Look no further than this dark chocolate banana pops recipe! This makes a healthy and delicious alternative to sugar store-bought frozen treats, plus it only takes 40 minutes with a little chilling.

We used extra ripe bananas for sweetness and stuck them with sticks. A drizzle of melted dark chocolate adds a touch of decadence and antioxidants. Then, you can add as many toppings as you want, from sprinkles to coconut flakes. Want another delicious and healthy banana dessert? Make this Coconut Flour Banana Bread

For another healthy addition to this dark chocolate banana pops recipe, you can use ice pops molds and add some Greek yogurt around the banana. We recommend frozen yogurt or blending it with some milk before freezing. For another healthy summer ice pop, try these Honey and Lemon Popsicles.
