Serves: 6 | Preparation: 15 minutes | Total: 2 hours | Difficulty: Easy


  • 2 large bananas  
  • 1 cup Greek vanilla yogurt 
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar 
  • Mini chocolate chips 
  • 6 popsicle sticks
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter 


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice 2 bananas into 3 equal pieces each and add popsicle sticks. Place on the baking sheet and freeze for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. Mix yogurt and powdered sugar in a small bowl. Dip the frozen bananas in the yogurt mixture and return them to the baking sheet.
  4. Freeze the baking sheet for at least 1 hour to set the yogurt coating.
  5. Heat peanut butter in the microwave for 30-45 seconds until smooth. Drizzle it over the banana mummies to create the look of bandages.

  7. Freeze for an additional 30 minutes until the peanut butter firms up.
