Neapolitan Yogurt Banana Pops

"Banana pops" are taking Pinterest and food blogs by a storm.  In fact this is not our first banana pop recipe - we first went down this road with "Banana Bites Peanut Butter Chocolate", a delicious recipe with banana pieces, chocolate, pretzels and peanut butter.

Typically banana pops are dipped in yogurt or chocolate and frozen for a healthier cold treat.  Most recipes use a chocolate or vanilla flavor and some roll or dip the pops in sprinkles, granola, and many other various toppings.

The appeal of "banana pops" to health conscious snackers is a sweet treat with lower calories and additional vitamins and minerals.   Bananas are an excellent source of potassium and fiber.  The pops are a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream pops. Most pops can be enjoyed for as little as 100 to 150 calories which is the ideal calorie range for a snack or sweat treat.

We wanted to create a "banana pop" never seen before!  Alas the "Neapolitan Yogurt Banana Pop" was born!  A lower calorie treat that allows you to enjoy a multitude of flavors - chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.  You might forget how healthy this treat really is!  Perfect for your next child's birthday party or simply for an evening or afternoon snack.
