Homemade Orange Cream Popsicles & Chocolate Covered Bananas!

Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen has 2 GREAT easy and fun recipes to help us cool off this summer!

She writes:

These taste just like the orange cream popsicles you are used to, but contain WAY more nutrients!

Puree cantaloupe in a food processor

Add orange sherbet and custard-style vanilla yogurt

Blend well

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze

I seriously did not even feel bad giving these to my children with their breakfast! It put my mind at ease that they were healthy!

A winning recipe! :)

1 cup orange sherbet

Frozen Chocolate Bananas – mmmmmm…

The thin layer of chocolate satisfies a craving while the banana provides fiber and heart healthy potassium!

Melt chocolate in the microwave , then add oil and stir well

Dip/cover bananas with chocolate and lay on wax paper. Freeze.

Chocolate Covered Bananas

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
2 medium bananas
wooden sticks

  1. Melt chocolate 30 seconds at a time in microwave, stirring in between.
  2. When chips are melted, add vegetable oil and stir well until creamy.
  3. Peel bananas and insert sticks into the bottom of banana ( I did not have sticks, it still worked)
  4. Dip bananas in chocolate or spoon over.
  5. Lay bananas on a baking sheet lined in wax paper.
  6. Freeze for several hours then enjoy!
