Bananicles (Banana Pops)

Like us on Facebook for more ideas for children.

It is hot today and our air-conditioned is not big enough to cool our house down, so we don’t use it. I am not a fan of the air myself, but on a day like today it would be nice. It is going to get close to 100 degrees. The kids like to play out in the little kiddy pool and run through the sprinkler to keep cool. (I like to join them! LOL!)
I also like to treat them to something cool.  We make what we call Bananicles or Banana Pops. It is a frozen banana on a stick.

The only things you need are bananas and popsicle sticks, which we save, wash, and use again.

Peel, cut the bananas in half, insert the stick, and freeze. How easy is that! The children love to help with this also. This is great for bananas that are good and ripe.

My children really like these. This is an awesome, refreshing, nutritional snack!
Have you ever tried this?
What are some other refreshing snacks to give the children?

  1. I was just thinking "gee, I need to blog about this but give them all the credit!" I'm glad you did, I'll feature this. :) We've been eating them non-stop since we came home, it's such a good idea and so simple!

    1. The kids LOVE them and the bananas are so good for them.

  2. What a great idea! This is perfect for when the grandkids visit and not messy like popsicles! lol Thanks for sharing and for linking at Frugal Treasures Tuesday.

  3. It´s a little bit of a pain, but I coat them with peanut butter and roll them in sunflower seeds

    1. That sound so good! My kids like the peanut butter on them, but we never tried the seeds.
