How To Make Banana Ghost Pops
Let’s talk about the equipment and ingredients that you will need to make some banana ghost pops at your house. You will need a prepared baking sheet, preferably one that has been lined with parchment paper. You will freeze bananas on your lined baking sheet in the freezer for two to four hours until they are completely frozen and set.
Now that your baking sheet is ready it is time to cut your bananas. You will need four bananas cut in half. After cutting the bananas you will insert a popsicle stick into the cut end. Once your bananas are on the popsicle sticks you are ready to dip them into plain vanilla yogurt.
This plain vanilla yogurt is the coating for your frozen banana pops, kind of like a chocolate-dipped frozen banana, but with yogurt instead.
Once your sliced bananas are coated in the plain vanilla yogurt, put them on your prepared baking sheet, and take three chocolate chips to make the face of your ghost.
You will need two chocolate chips for the eyes and one for the nose. Now your banana popsicles are ready for the freezer for at least two to four hours so that the yogurt can set. You could easily make these ghost pops in advance and just keep them in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.
This recipe will make eight banana ghost pops, but you could easily double or triple the recipe if you need more to serve to a crowd. These would make a nice frozen treat for a Halloween get together for kids or adults!
