Scare Away Your Sugar Cravings with Banana Ghost Pops!

The endless offerings of Halloween junk food can make it challenging to stick to any healthy eating program. Thankfully, there are fun ways to scare away your sugar cravings! Our new favorite Halloween treat? Banana ghost pops!


  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 6 raisins
  • 12 mini chocolate chips
  • 3 bananas
  • 1.5 cups of sugar-free orange juice (you can drink it after you dunk the bananas!)
  • 6 popsicle sticks

Yield: 6 pops

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 4 hours (freezing)

Turn a banana into a frightful ghost! Cut the banana in half widthwise and insert a popsicle stick into the flat end. Freeze for a few hours, then dip in orange juice, followed by shredded coconut. Be sure to grab the dried shredded coconut. We found that moist coconut flakes did not stick to the banana well. Place two chocolate chips for eyes and a plump raisin for the mouth.
