Banana Chosts

Looking for a spooky, healthy recipe to make with your kids this Halloween season? You have to give these delicious banana ghosts a try! Make this even more fun by turning on some Halloween music or a Halloween movie in the background.



  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup vanilla or Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • Mini chocolate chips

1. Peel the Bananas:

  • Have your child help you peel the bananas. This is a safe and straightforward task for them to do.

2. Cut the Bananas:

  • Slice the bananas in half to create ghost shapes.
  • Encourage your child to use a plastic or butter knife to help with this step (under your supervision).

3. Dip in yogurt

  • Help your child dip each banana ghost into the yogurt, making sure to coat it entirely. The yogurt will act as the ghost's "sheet."

4. Add Coconut Topping

  • Sprinkle shredded coconut over the yogurt-covered banana ghosts. This will make them look like they have a spooky, ghostly appearance.

5. Create Ghost Faces

  • Place mini chocolate chips on each banana ghost to make eyes and a mouth. Your child can get creative and make the ghosts have a variety of expressions.

6. Chill & Serve

  • Place the banana ghosts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a tray and put them in the freezer for about 1-2 hours until they are firm.
