Banana & Peanut Butter Popsicles

Happy June everyone! There is no doubt that my Dutch housemates Kevin and Sam, as well as myself, share an unconditional love for peanut butter. I also know that Kevin loves bananas and Sam loves popsicles. All these into account, I was almost certain that there is something out there that incorporates the three together.

I did some research and I found a recipe by Megan via Detoxinista, for Peanut Butter Banana Ice Pops. I shared the recipe with my housemates and we all agreed that we should make this – well, more like I make it and then they eat it. So that’s what I did yesterday, made the popsicles and let them to set in the freezer overnight for a happy Sunday afternoon snack 🙂

The recipe makes 8 popsicles, but I only had a mould that is good for 6, also it depends on the side of your moulds. I just kept the rest of the mixture in a container in the refrigerator to later pour into the mould as we consume them.

Banana & Peanut Butter Popsicles: Procedure

PREP TIME 10 MINS | COOKING TIME  SERVES 6 POPSICLES

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 large bananas (or 4 if small)
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup full cream milk
  • 1 tbsp honey and maple syrup blend
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt (optional only if you are using unsalted peanut butter)

METHOD

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until very smooth and creamy. If necessary, adjust the sweetness to taste keeping in mind that the frozen version will taste less sweet than the mixture.
  2. Pour the batter into the popsicle moulds and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until solid. When removing the frozen popsicles from their moulds, submerge them in hot water for about 20 seconds to allow them to loosen.
