Frozen Banana Pops

Frozen Banana Pops

Forget the sugar-laden store-bought popsicles.

These frozen banana pops covered in chocolate and peanut butter with crunchy pistachios are the perfect healthy substitute for a sweet dessert or snack.

Vanilla Vegan Shakeology and sweet coconut oil make the toppings crackle like they do on chocolate-dipped ice cream bars, but these banana pops contain a whole serving of fruit, have only 140 calories each, and they’re dairy-free!
