Chocolate + Banana Popsicles


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

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in the blender and mix thoroughly.
Pour into popsicle tray and insert popsicle sticks/handles
Freeze overnight


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!
