Hi Bold Bakers!

When it comes to frozen desserts, you just can’t go wrong with a Banana Split. It’s probably no secret that over the years I’ve created some pretty spectacular banana split recipes, such as my Banana Split Ice Cream Cake or my Banana Split Frappuccino. The combination of ice cream, chocolate, strawberries, bananas, and a cherry on top makes for an almost perfect treat.

While I don’t know a single person that wouldn’t want to dive straight into one if it was put in front of them, it seems like the sad truth is that sometimes we just don’t have the time to make this over-the-top ice cream sundae. Well, what if I told you that you could have a simplified, and even healthier version of a Banana Split right now? While it may seem like I’m joking, I never joke when it comes to dessert. Because of this, I present to you all my Banana Split Popsicles!

After rethinking how to make this nostalgic dessert, I got an idea that made a lot of sense. I simply combined greek yogurt, frozen banana and fresh strawberries into one super yummy popsicle! While most people would probably just leave it there, I decided to go all out.

After just a few hours in the freezer, I top this baby off with the works. Because I wanted my popsicle to be like a real sundae, I dip these popsicles into lots of chocolate and coat them in colorful sprinkles. After topping it off with whipped cream, I complete this frozen treat with a cherry on top. As a result, I have created beautiful Banana Split Popsicles for the world to enjoy!

My Banana Split Popsicles are fun and easy to make, while still being super colorful and impressive. Not to mention, they’re a healthier alternative to the real thing. As a result (and I somewhat hate to say it,) I don’t think anyone who tries this recipe will miss regular Banana Splits ever again!

Hi Gemma,
Where does the maraschino cherries come in? There is no mention of it in the instructions.

Hello Gemma! These look absolutely fabulous, but if I wanted to make it less like ice cream and more like, well, icy should I use less yogurt and more milk or something?

Hi Gemma, I’m new here. Want to say first, I enjoy your quick and easy ice pop recipes. Haven’t tried any yet, but plan to. My question is, can almond milk be used in any of these recipes?

Hey Gemma, I just bought a popsicle mold and I was wondering if I could use regular yogurt rather than greek yogurt?

I’ll be making the Banana Split popsicles tomorrow. I need to make fifty, I have two questions.

1. How long will it last in the freezer?
2. Will it turn brown after a day or so?
