Chocolate Banana Yogurt Pops

Chocolate Banana Yogurt Pops
Here in South Carolina August is pretty much the dog days of summer. It’s been hot up until now, but this is the month things really kick into high gear. As in highs in the upper 90s to low 100s with humidity to match. I vividly remember being very pregnant with Jack in August of 2007 which had 14 days of 100 degrees or hotter!

It’s miserable. We are inside most of the time, only working in the garden and playing outside first thing in the morning. It’s days like these that call for frozen treats. I’ve managed to keep everyone away from ice pops so far this year, Josh and school have helped hook the boys on those in the past.

These are a healthier option and incredibly easy to make. All it takes are some ripe bananas, cocoa powder and plain yogurt. Blend it all together and freeze. It doesn’t get much easier, and healthier for that matter. The kiddos get fruit and dairy, win win for me. We may need to make these very often this month just to stay cool!

    What a fantastic healthy summer treat! I just happen to have some bananas on the way out. Can’t wait to see what my kiddos think 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    They are pretty groovy molds! Bananas are SO versatile and one of the few fruits they haven’t managed to process, pack in plastic and sell back at a 1000% markup.
