Peanut butter banana popsicles

These popsicles are unlike any that you have ever eaten. This recipes excludes any liquids, making for a smooth texture with a decadent crunch from the chocolate chips. My mom loves semi-sweet chocolate chips and swears that it is the only cure for her chocolate cravings. Great for an summer afternoon pick-me-up or for curing your sweet fix!

Yields: 4 pops

Time needed: Prep: 5 min; In freezer: 4 hrs +

What you’ll need:

  • 3 ripened bananas
  • 1/4 cup of natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Special equipment:

  1. food processor
  2. popsicle mold

How to:

Begin by placing bananas and peanut butter in food processor. Pulse until well mixed. Once it is mixed, add in the chocolate chips. Pulse for only 7-8 pulses. I like to add the chocolate chips at the end and carefully pulse them so they vary in size and you get a surprise- sized bite every time.  Now, fill the molds. You can even put a funnel over each mold so it goes in nice and neatly. That’s up to you. I’m not much of a perfectionist, I don’t use one, so mine ends up dripping! Freeze for four hours, or overnight.

For a great variation, substitute peanut butter for cashew butter!!
