Are you looking for a delicious, nutritious sugar-free dessert that the whole family will love? Try Banana Popsicles (with nuts)! Special thanks to fellow YouTuber, Tasya89, for sharing this recipe, which was inspired by our Change Your Diet, Change Your Life Series, because it features a healthy sugar substitute: raw honey!

Banana Popsicles Ingredients
- 4 small ripe bananas or 8 baby bananas
- 1/2 cup of raw clover honey, since this is a runnier honey
- 1/3 cup of crushed nuts (you can use whatever is your favorite kind of nut, but walnuts and pecans work great)
You’ll also need a cookie sheet, parchment paper, and some kind of stick, such as popsicle sticks or skewers.
Banana Popsicles Directions
- Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Unpeel your bananas and put them on your sticks and set them all on the cookie sheet.
- Drizzle one side of your bananas with honey, then sprinkle on crushed nuts.
- Flip your bananas and repeat the honey and nut drizzle.
- Freeze the covered bananas for 12 to 24 hours.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
For a different taste, you can also replace your crushed nuts with things like shredded coconut, raw cacao nips, nutritional yeast flakes, or even wheat germ. Or, why not go crazy and do some kind of mixture of these ingredients?!
These are so great to have on hand—especially during the summer months. The kids love them, and you can feel good about the fact that they’re not loaded with artificial sugars and dyes, much like other popsicles are.
Health Benefits of Bananas
Bananas contain so many important nutrients, including potassium, vitamin B6 (a great morning sickness remedy, by the way!), vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, and protein.
Studies show bananas can also help regulate blood sugar, improve digestion (try it as a natural constipation remedy), reduce your risk of developing heart disease, help regulate weight by helping you feel fuller longer, improve longterm kidney health, and reduce muscle cramping—particularly during exercise.
