Frozen banana pops

So today has been pretty much the hottest day of the Summer. The only problem is it isn’t Summer any more! Oh well, there’s still time to enjoy some cooling frozen treats. In fact these are pretty good for pudding at any time of year, whether it’s hot or snowing outside. They are quick and easy to make and you probably have everything you need to make them already.

These are quite healthy, especially if you use honey and not syrup. They are great fun for children to make, The girls all helped even the twins, who are only two. Just remember to be careful of allergies when using coconut.
