One of my friends, Diane, has never been the most passionate cook in the world, especially when it comes to cooking for herself. But when she had kids, that all changed. Diane is my favorite militant mom when it comes to making sure her kids eat totally balanced, healthy meals. Compared to her, I look like Willy Wonka!

One thing is for sure, when you have 3 kids under the age of five, as Diane does, it’s all about fast and fun recipes! She comes up with the most fabulous simple recipe ideas and has shared a few of them with me over the years.Frozen Bananas on a Stick from Weelicious.comPin

I was inspired by a picture Diane sent me of her brood devouring frozen bananas on a stick with huge smiles on their faces. Reminding me of one of my own childhood favorites, I couldn’t help but take Diane’s treat one step further and coat them with a drizzle of chocolate and a few toppings before freezing. Just a little bit goes a long way towards creating a truly heavenly treat, and when you’re looking for an inexpensive after-school or camp snack, these frozen bananas on a stick are a total crowd pleaser!

  1. […] You know what they are (and if you don’t, get out of here). This recipe from Weelicious. […]

  2. These r nearly as good as boys bananas. I have started to eat these for dinner instead of my fav boy bananas. I have however found that chocolate tastes better on boys bananas instead of these bananas.

  3. I love them there my number one food
    Now for dinner we have chilly for a starter and them for main course and we have lettuce for dessert

  4. to make them crunchy, instead of melted chocolate I’m planning to use Ovomaltine crunchy cream!

  5. I simply wnated to thank you once more for your amazing site you have developed here.

  6. These are a hit in our household too — I make versions for the adults with toasted coconut and chopped nuts too!

  7. The frozen bananas look so simple yet delicious! I have a feeling they are boyfriend friendly, too 😉

  8. Yum! We rolled ours in nuts-only almond butter (warmed so it was a bit runny) and then rolled them through unsweetened coconut and froze them. Delish!! And such a great summer treat.

  9. You can heat the chocolate on the stove over very low heat, in a double boiler, or in the microwave!

  10. Sounds like a stupid question, but how do you melt the chocolate? Do you just put the choco chips in a pot on low heat? Thanks!

  11. I just made these with my daughter and we also add granola for a little crunch. My three kids love them.
