They also make but a great snack to offer at parties and sleepovers.
All you need to make them is a few fresh bananas, a little bit of nutella, and rainbow or colored sprinkles.
With 3 bananas, you'll get 9 frozen banana bites sticks.
You do not need a lot of nutella either, just about ½ cup.
You'll also need popsicle sticks or wooden skewers.

Making frozen banana bites takes about 10 minutes. That's the time it takes to put them together. It will be about another 60 minutes to freeze them.
Get your kids involved with making these. They will have a lot of fun dropping sprinkles onto the bites and helping to "skewer" the nutella bananas.
Here are the steps:
- Peel and slice the bananas into ½ inch pieces.
- Make the skewers with 3 banana slices. Top 2 of the 3 banana pieces with nutella and sprinkles. Stack the 2 slices, and then place 1 plain banana slice on top. Slide a popsicle stick into the stack. Be careful here, so that the bananas do not break. Squeeze the banana stack as you insert the popsicle stick to avoid it breaking.
