Looking for an easy and delicious summer treat? Cool off with these homemade chocolate banana popsicles – they’re creamy, chocolaty and oh so yummy!



For The Popsicles

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup cream, full fat coconut milk or milk of choice
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder (I like to use dutch processed cocoa powder)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

For Chocolate & Nut Topping (optional)

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts of choice (e.g. walnuts, pecans, almonds, peanuts)


  1. Blend: Place all the popsicle ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds: Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
  3. Freeze: Freeze for at least 4-6 hours or until solid (preferably overnight). Enjoy as is or continue with the optional chocolate and nut topping.
  4. Dip in chocolate and nuts: This is optional. Melt together chocolate chips and coconut oil (allow to cool down for a few minutes if too hot).  Dip the top half of the popsicles into the melted chocolate and sprinkle on the chopped nuts.  Serve immediately or place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and put back in the freezer until set.


  • This is my favorite popsicle mold which I have been using for many years now after ditching the frustrating hard plastic ones.  This recipe makes 6 popsicles using this mold but quantity will vary depending on the size of popsicle mold you use.
  • Make sure to use ripe bananas! The riper the bananas are, the sweeter and more flavorful the popsicles will be. This is a great no-cook recipe to use up overripe bananas.
  • Store in freezer for 1-2 months.  Keep popsicles stored in the popsicle mold (if not dipped) or wrap each one up in plastic wrap or reusable beeswax food wrap and store in a freezer bag or airtight container.
