The banana flavor is so tasty and it’s better than anything at the grocery store. You are going to love the savings as well as the satisfaction of knowing what is in the popsicles. There aren’t any hidden ingredients or artificial flavors in these popsicles.

How to store:

You can either store them in the popsicle mold or place them in a separate container. Depending on the type of mold you have, sometimes air can get to the popsicles.

I prefer to remove them and store inside a freezer container. This is convenient for children to easily get one out of the freezer without having to remove from the mold each time.

If you decide to dip these popsicles in chocolate, they should be wrapped individually in plastic wrap before placing inside the storage container.

These homemade popsicles will last for 6 weeks in the freezer.

Recipe tips

  • Remove gently from mold. If you have trouble removing the popsicles, run warm water over the molds and they should pop right out. Just don’t use hot water or they might melt.
  • Popsicle Molds. We prefer to use the silicone molds. They are easier to remove and you often don’t have to do anything extra. They are flexible and usually just easily peel away from each popsicle.
  • Ripe bananas. You will need to use ripe bananas in the recipe. The sweeter they are, the better. The popsicles will have a sweeter flavor if the bananas are ripe.
  • Quality ingredients. Use high quality ingredients in this recipe. It will make a difference in the taste.
  • Add more milk if needed. If you find the mixture is too thick, you can add more milk to thin it out. Only add a small amount at a time to avoid using too much.

Variations

  • Sweetener. Honey is our favorite but you can also use maple syrup or agave nectar in this recipe.
  • Dairy free. This recipe can easily be made dairy free by substituting the milk. You can use either almond milk or soy milk.
  • Strawberry Banana popsicles. Strawberries can easily be added to the recipe for a delicious Strawberry Banana variety. Try adding ½ cup to 1 cup to the recipe. The liquid may need to be adjusted.
  • Add ins. Add cocoa powder, vanilla extract or cinnamon to the recipe to change the flavor. Just add to taste based on preference.
  • Chocolate. Chocolate Chips or melted chocolate can be added to the popsicles before freezing. This is an easy way to give them chocolate flavor and it pairs well with the banana. Simply pour the mixture into each mold and then add the chocolate of your choice.
  • Dipped Popsicles. You can really make these decadent by dipping the frozen treats in chocolate and sprinkling chopped nuts on them. Freeze again until set.

The kids love these frozen treats and I love how healthy they are. Without any refined sugar or added ingredients, it really is healthy and simple.

The recipe is easy to adapt for dairy free options and such a tasty recipe.
