Bananas are naturally sweet in flavour. They tend to be a big hit among children for this reason. Simply freezing the banana is an exciting way for children to enjoy the everyday fruit. Adding a layer of yoghurt then gives the frozen banana an ice-cream type texture. The little pieces of extra fruit almost become sprinkles.

You can make these healthy frozen banana and fruit pops using any kind of yoghurt which makes it a great option for Vegans too. We've tried sweetened yoghurts, plain yoghurts and plant based yoghurts. It is incredibly versatile. It also happens to be a brilliant teething solution for toddlers. Simply cut a banana in half, add a lolly pop stick, dip it in to any kind of yoghurt, add some fruit and freeze. Trust us, this is a total winner!
