Vegan banana split popsicles are made with coconut milk for creamy treat without the bowl!

Last summer I purchased a popsicle mold that ended up being ignored for nine months. Such is the case with many of the kitchen gadgets I have lurking in my house — right now I have a deep fryer hanging out in my trunk, where it’s been since I borrowed from a friend in mid-May.

Vegan Banana Split Popsicles are made by blending coconut milk with ripe banana, then mixing with chopped fresh strawberries and pineapple.

This habit doesn’t go over too well with the rest of the family, especially my older son, who spies the popsicle sticks every time I go into that drawer for something else and then dramatically declares that I never make anything he actually likes. Just to prove him wrong, I made these popsicles. I can’t even eat bananas, so this is what parenting is all about. Sacrifice.

Now, banana splits are one of those magical wonders of dessert. Something that is always talked about, but very rarely purchased and eaten except on the most important of occasions, banana splits are practically disappearing from menus, while the idea of the banana split lives on.

The combination of fruits and ice cream and chocolate is nostalgically appealing, but the sheer size of the dessert has (remarkably, given our tendencies) apparently made us shy away from ordering them. Or maybe it’s the fact that banana splits are replete with fruit and we can’t abide by a seemingly healthy dessert.

But then, here I am, making this dessert healthier than it was before by nixing a whole bunch of ingredients, in favor of fruits that should be allowed to shine.

These vegan banana split popsicles are made by blending coconut milk with ripe banana, then mixing with chopped fresh strawberries and pineapple.


Vegan chocolate shell made with coconut oil makes the pops even more irresistible, and of course you have to top things off with sprinkles or a cherry.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Freeze Time 4 hours
Total Time 4 hours 10 minutes
Servings 8 popsicles
Calories 228 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
  • 7 ounces vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Cherries and/or sprinkles for topping

Instructions

  • Using a blender, immersion blender, or food processor, blend together bananas and coconut milk until smooth.
  • Stir in strawberries and pineapple, then divide mixture among popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 4 hours, until set.
  • When ready to coat popsicles, remove popsicle mold from the freezer and set in sink to thaw slightly.
  • Make the chocolate coating by melting chocolate slowly in the microwave, in 30-second increments, stirring after each time. When the chocolate is almost completely melted, add the coconut oil, stir well, and heat again for 15 seconds. Stir until completely smooth. If you like, transfer chocolate to a tall jar wide enough to dip popsicles into. Pour sprinkles, if using, into another jar.
  • Set a sheet of waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Remove popsicles from molds gently and carefully dip popsicle into chocolate, then immediately into sprinkles (or press a cherry into the top).
  • Set finished popsicles onto waxed paper and freeze cookie sheet for 30 minutes, then remove popsicles to a freezer-safe container, with waxed paper between each popsicle.
  • Let thaw slightly before eating.

Notes

Dark chocolate chips contain no milk, but check the label for vegan certification if you are concerned with cross-contamination.
The melted chocolate will harden immediately when it comes in contact with the popsicle, so work quickly. Any leftover chocolate can be stored, covered, in the pantry, and reheated if it solidifies.

  1. Ooh, such a yummy option to the traditional banana split! I have a feeling these disappeared in a flash—I wish you had saved one for me 🙂
    P.S. Great seeing you this weekend! Wish we had more time to chat!!!

  2. 5 stars
    What a fabulous dairy-free dessert and such a sweet treat for your boy. I know he must have been thrilled to have these beautiful popsicles made just for him! 😉

  3. I’ve been waiting to see this recipe every since you teased us with being done early. They look and sound fantastic.

    I have the same molds. I bought a fancier set at first a couple of years ago but they are the ones sitting gathering dust; I like these with the wooden stick and the simple design…the ingredients are all you need to make it pretty.
