School is out in most places and warmer weather has arrived. The sounds of the street are filled with children’s laughter and the catchy jingle of the ice cream man. Stop there, parents — you won’t need to shell out for overpriced and unhealthy treats anymore. Instead, try this cheaper make-at-home cold summer treat, a great way to get healthy fruit into our kids with a little something special.

This is a fun project for kids to help with. They will enjoy coming up with interesting ways of decorating their own “popsicle.” Who doesn’t love an ice-cold treat when it’s hot outside?

Recipe makes 6 chocolate banana pops.
