To make a refreshing banana pop, cut the banana in half, insert a Popsicle stick and freeze. Dip the pop in maple syrup, honey or melted chocolate, then roll in chopped nuts or cookie crumbs and return to the freezer.
My kids love homemade ice pops, and I love knowing that the ones we make are good for them. We whip up a big batch with multiple flavors so they have many choices, but these patriotic red, white and blue ones are always a favorite! —Shannon Carino, Frisco, Texas
These wholesome treats are as fun to make as they are to eat. My little granddaughter, Taylor, likes to do the scooping and pouring. The hardest part is waiting for the pops to freeze, so she can have one!—Taylor Smith, Old Orchard Beach, Maine
