Never believing me, he did his best to come up with the most ridiculous idea he could. His idea? A banana, dipped in yogurt and cereal and frozen like a popsicle. I laughed my "I know I'm right and you're wrong" laugh and proceeded to google his "new" idea.
Sure enough. Several PAGES of search results popped up. It's not to say it was a bad idea, just not a totally original one, so I decided I would at some point make his banana pops on the blog.
Now, I realize there are about a million and one Michael Scott/The Office jokes you could associate with this entire post. So I'm just going to acknowledge that and try to move on. Cut bananas in half and insert popsicle sticks.
Dip banana in yogurt and roll in your topping of choice.
Place bananas on a foil-lined baking sheet and freeze for an hour or until firm.
And that's it! Frozen bananas sort of take on an ice cream consistency, so these are perfect for a healthy snack or dessert. These would be great for kids too... they could even help make them. And even though they may not be totally original, they are totally delicious. Thanks Rob!
