Healthy Halloween BooNana Ghost Pops

With just three ingredients, these pops take no time at all to make. To add a layer of flavor, sprinkle them with shredded coconut after you've coated them with yogurt. Then add your chocolate chip eyes.


  • 3 bananas
  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt (not Greek yogurt)
  • 12 mini chocolate chips
  • Special equipment: 6 wooden popsicle sticks


  1. Line a 9-inch baking pan with parchment or waxed paper.
  2. Peel the bananas and cut them in half crosswise at a slight angle. Insert a popsicle stick into the cut end of each banana and push it about halfway up.
  3. Put the yogurt into a small bowl. Hold onto the pops by the popsicle sticks and roll each banana in the yogurt to coat the exterior (tilting the bowl so the yogurt pools on the side makes this easier). Let excess yogurt drip back into the bowl (you can run your finger along the back of the bananas to remove the excess). Lay the pops in the baking pan. You will have leftover yogurt.
  4. Push the pointy top of 2 chocolate chips into each banana to make the eyes of the ghosts.
  5. Put into the freezer to firm up, at least 3 hours.
  6. Remove pops from the freezer and use a knife to trim away any yogurt that pooled and froze along the sides of the banana.
  7. Serve straight from the freezer.
  8. Note: Once pops are frozen, store them in a resealable bag or covered container in the freezer.
