These pops are the greatest food to cool off with because they are creamy chocolate-covered banana popsicles with hints of vanilla and peanut butter.
These Banana Popsicles are the ideal snack or poolside refreshing because they resemble a banana smoothie on a stick. Nothing is simpler to create than a tasty popsicle from a few ingredients you probably already have in your home!
Crazy For Popsicles
I chose this popsicle recipe from my collection of Summer dishes that we made on the hottest days and saved it just for this occasion. Being ready pays off because the majority of our readers are located on the other side of the globe!
All of these delectable memories come flooding back to us when we view these pictures once more. There is nothing in a wrapper that compares to the flavor packed in these popsicles.
They are creamy, smoothie-like popsicles with a gentle sweetness of honey, a bit of saltiness from the peanut butter, and a dash of vanilla.
The ideal Method For Making Popsicles
These popsicles have a thick mixture. We attempted to make them runnier, but the results were disappointing (imagine dripping banana or milk streaming down your hands only two seconds into eating). Please make use of a strong blender or food processor because of this.
Advice On Banana Popsicles:
Ripe bananas are the best to start with. Nearly ripe, but not quite as ripe as you would use for banana bread. The sweeter your banana popsicles are, the riper they are.
Smooth peanut butter is what we use. Almond butter or any other nut butter you have on hand can be used in its place. If you have nut allergies, omit them entirely and season the mixture with a little salt instead.
Use plain, Greek, or natural yogurt to give the popsicles a subtle tang and give you the freedom to customize the sweetness and flavors.
Honey: a sweetener added to the banana combination. After combining all the ingredients, adjust it to your liking. Start with 1 tablespoon, then increase as needed.
Magic Shell chocolate is the ideal kind to use for popsicles. If you are using molten chocolate, you must act quickly.
Dip the popsicles in the chocolate, followed by the nuts, if used, and immediately put them back in the freezer to set for a few minutes. This will prevent the popsicles from melting due to the warmth of the chocolate.
These banana pops are the best snack for cooling off because they are creamy, chocolate-covered, and have hints of vanilla and peanut butter.
- 2 medium-sized ripe bananas peeled and broken into pieces
- 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter or almond butter (optional)
- 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt (Greek or Natural)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1-2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup Magic Shell (Ice Magic), or semi-sweet chocolate, melted
- 1/2 cup crushed peanuts optional
Place bananas into a food processor bowl or blender, along with the peanut butter, yogurt, milk, 1 tablespoon of honey, and vanilla. Puree or blend, while stopping now and then to scrape the sides down with a plastic spatula, until smooth. (If the mixture is too thick, add a little more milk to get it mixed.) Taste test and add more honey, if needed, to suit your tastes,
Divide the mixture into popsicle molds, tap molds on a kitchen bench to reduce air pockets, and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze until frozen solid, (about 4-5 hours).
When ready to serve, place molds under warm running water for 3-5 seconds to remove popsicles with ease.
Dip into the melted chocolate and coat with crushed peanuts (optional).
