No trick here, these are ALL treat – without all the sugar, artificial colors, and other nasty stuff you know is lurking around every corner come the 31st! I made these super delicious cool and creamy frozen dessert ghosts (hey, it’s still 80+ degrees here in the Florida Keys!) a couple of weeks ago, and my whole family loved them so much, we are going to make them again this weekend for a special family Halloween dessert night. Part of the fun is that these are SO easy, the kids can actually make their own, so you get to do a Halloween craft together and then eat it!
This recipe is the first in a series of 3 Halloween treat ideas I found online and altered to make them healthier. Keep your eyes peeled for the next in my series of Healthy Halloween Treats coming up later this week.

OK, that’s all for now. Happy Haunting!!!
2 large bananas
1/2 c. nonfat plain Greek yogurt

1. Cut bananas in half at center. Insert popsicle stick into cut end of each banana half and remove peels.

8 MONTHS TO 2 YEARS Substitute plain whole milk yogurt. Omit chocolate chips if concern for choking (8-15 months). Carefully supervise small children while eating.
