Things sure are hot around our neck of the woods, and what better way to cool down than with a popsicle! As much as I love the bright sugar filled ones from the grocery store; sometimes it is nice to give my son one with less junk in it. I searched around online for a recipe, but most of them involved ingredients that I didn’t have on hand (like instant pudding), so I decided to make up my own recipe! The most expensive part of this recipe is the milk, but if you have kids, I’m sure you go through lots of milk anyways! I’m not that familiar with non-dairy milk products, but have read that both soy and almond milks can be used in frozen desserts. So if you prefer to use those, they should work just fine.
Chocolate Banana Popsicles (this recipe makes enough to fill 4, 1/4 cup popsicle molds)
· 1 cup milk (I used my sons’ organic whole milk)
· 1 tbsp cocoa powder
· 2 tbsp sugar (taste it after 1 tbsp, you might not want it this sweet)
· 1 ripe mashed up banana
Mix everything together, and pour into molds! Freeze and enjoy!
