PB, Chocolate, & Banana Popsicles {Vegan, No Sugar Added}

How many chocolate recipe have I posted in a row now… three? Four? Sigh. Not that I think you guys mind, but a little variety would be nice, huh? I promise that my next post will feature a different ingredient.

But first, these popsicles….

They’re basically the popsicle form of a healthy, easy, and delicious dessert I’ve been making for years: peanut butter & chocolate banana soft serve (frozen banana, peanut butter, cocoa powder, and a bit of milk tossed into the food processor and blended until smooth).

They’re fudgy, creamy, and decadent-tasting without any added sugar or dairy. Kids and adults alike love them, and they couldn’t be easier or quicker to whip up.

One more look at this chocolatey goodness before we move on to something else!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Ingredients (8 popsicles)

  • 4 medium-sized overripe bananas (the skins should be mostly brown)

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until very smooth.

Pour into popsicle molds, insert popsicle sticks (the mixture should be thick enough for the sticks to stand upright), and place in freezer for at least 4 hours.

Maple Pudding Pops

As I mentioned in the Maple Baked Brie post, my original intention for the maple contest was to make maple pudding; but it didn’t end up being all that great. What did end up being great were the popsicles that the pudding turned into!

I think the cool weather is here to stay in New England, but if it’s still warm where you are – and you’re craving the flavors of autumn – these frozen treats are just what you’re looking for.

Creamy, frosty, and bursting with robust maple flavor, these popsicles are a perfect transition from warm to cool temperatures!
