Frozen Banana Pops

Go ahead, reach into the freezer for a frozen treat! These frozen bananas covered in chocolate and peanut butter with crunchy pistachios taste just like eating dessert. Vanilla Vegan Shakeology and sweet coconut oil make the toppings crackle like they do on chocolate-dipped ice cream bars, but these banana pops contain a whole serving of fruit, and have only 140 calories each, and they’re dairy-free!
