It’s official, the first week of summer break has started here! No more school means later nights, later mornings (hopefully), and lazy days.
And what’s better than a cold treat on a hot, lazy day. I don’t know about your kids, but as soon as the weather gets warm, my kids start asking for popsicles. Last summer, I bought a ginormous box of assorted popsicles at Costco. I gave the popsicles to the kids as an occasional treat. I say occasional because the sugar in store-bought popsicles is high. And the last thing my kids need is sugar! Not only does processed sugar cause a sugar high, but it also causes a sugar crash…which, when you have 3 little boys, ain’t pretty.
So this year, I have vowed to make my own “popsicles” for the boys. And since I’m always looking for ways to sneak some nutrition into my kids, these Chocolate Banana Pops are the perfect summer treat.
Not only are these extremely easy to make, but they are also nutritious. They include a full serving of fruit, as well as omega-3’s, fiber, and antioxidants from being rolled in dark chocolate, Mila, and unsweetened coconut .
My kids loved these Chocolate Banana Pops! Of course, I loved that they were eating something yummy yet nutritious. And, since they only take 10 minutes to make, I highly suggest you make them for your kids…and even sneak one for yourself when they aren’t looking.
