Cut banana in half Length wise. <br/>Do not peel yet - insert craft stick into center of cut surface. Watch the angle, not too close to the edges. <br/>NOW peel the banana, it is less likely to split apart.

I love that kids can make this recipe themselves. Very simple to do and affordable. Makes for a healthy frozen snack for summer.
