Imagine, pudding for breakfast. These frozen banana sticks are so delicious that your taste buds will be fooled into thinking that you are enjoying a delicious treat.

However, these frozen bites are packed with so much goodness that they are categorised as a breakfast. Nothing stops you from enjoying frozen banana sticks as an any-time snack as well.

These frozen banana popsicles can easily be mistaken for ice cream. Even with winter becoming a reality in South Africa now, many of us love ice cream so much that we can eat it any season of the year. These frozen banana sticks are the healthier option compared to ice cream.

When selecting bananas, make sure you choose the ripest bananas as they tend to be sweeter. Get ready to stock your fruit bowl regularly with bananas as this sweet, creamy, icy beat is seriously addictive.
