My daughter has been asking for popsicles as the weather gets warmer. After a brief search on Pinterest and not having the right combination of ingredients on hand, I decided to try putting something together with what we did have.
I got out the blender and popsicle mold then pulled a few things from the cupboard and fridge.
I ended up using the following ingredients:
1/2 cup coconut milk (I use this brand)
1/2 cup coconut water
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 over-ripe bananas, sliced
Combine all ingredients in the blender and mix thoroughly.
Pour into popsicle tray and insert popsicle sticks/handles
She was so proud of her creation (in case you can't tell) from the photo above. It was hard to wait for them to freeze, but there were a few sips left in the blender, so I poured it into a cup and assured her it would be like a smoothie.
The next day, it was a welcome surprise (she'd forgotten about them) to finally eat her own popsicle!
