Equipment

  • 1 quart size Ziploc bag
  • 1 rubber band
  • pair of scissors
  • 4 skewers
  • 3 popsicle sticks

Ingredients
  

  • 1 banana
  • 1 apple
  • ¼ cup cacao powder If you do not have cacao powder, you can replace it with ½ cup of semisweet chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. 
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt I use original Mountain High brand

Instructions
 

  • Cut the banana in thirds and gently push a popsicle stick halfway into each banana piece.
  • Cut apples in fours, lengthwise. You can choose to use or toss the piece with the core in it. Gently push the skewer stick through each apple.
  • Freeze fruit for 1 hour or until fruit is chilled cold.
  • Coat each frozen fruit pop with yogurt. Use a spoon or spatula to evenly coat the side you will be decorating on.
  • Freeze pops on a plate or cutting board for 1 hour, or until yogurt coating hardens.
  • In a small bowl, add cacao powder, coconut oil, and maple syrup.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Mix well.
  • Scoop the chocolate sauce into the Ziploc bag, making sure to place the sauce all in one corner of the bag. This will be used as your piping bag. Secure the bag with a rubber band.
  • Cut a small hole in the corner of the Ziploc bag. The smaller the hole, the finer your piping will be.
  • Decorate each fruit pop with your favorite Halloween character.
  • If the yogurt begins to melt, put it back in the freezer to chill.
  • Chill the pops until ready to serve or enjoy right away!

Notes

* Make sure the banana is not overly ripe, so the popsicle stick will stay in place better. 
*If you don’t have any popsicles sticks, to-go chopsticks work as well!
*Cut the pointy ends off the skewers. Make sure you do not let young kids handle these or eat with them unsupervised.
