So far this year we’ve been trying to find new ways to keep our KES Club’s menus simple, but still keeping it fun, exciting and yummy. Most kids love bananas, we love bananas – they are affordable, easy and delicious. The next time bananas are on your menu, try using the below recipe to create something special for your Club!
Ingredients (2 bananas will make 4 servings)
- Yogurt of choice
- Granola (you can make your own or purchase one high in fibre, low in sugar)
- Additional toppings – coconut shreds, raisins, cereal, etc.
- Popsicle sticks
Pour granola into a very shallow dish or plate. Peel bananas, cut in half, and insert popsicle sticks. Dip into yogurt, and then roll into granola and add-ons (as always, be aware of allergies in your Club). Place on a parchment or wax-lined tray and freeze. Serve when frozen. You can do this the day before you serve. Enjoy!
