Kids & Creativity: Halloween Ghost Pops (art you can eat)

by Andrea Mulder-Slater

Cooking with kids is as creative as painting with kids. And, you can eat your masterpieces!

The other day, while flipping through Alive Magazine, we came across a terrific recipe by Amie Watson. We decided to modify it slightly and give it a try, using items we had around the house. The littlest one was thrilled. Of course.

The ingredients are few and the directions are simple.

What you need:
  • Bananas
  • Shredded coconut
  • Yogurt
  • Chocolate chips (or raisins)
What you do:

Cut the bananas in half and insert a homemade ice pop stick in each one. (Or, you could use a toothpick, shishkabob stick or Popsicle stick).

Dip the banana pieces (one by one) first into the yogurt, and then into the coconut.

Embellish with chocolate chips or raisins.

Place in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.

Enjoy the fruits of your labour!
