With the arrival of the warmer weather, comes the purchasing of freezes and popsicles! My son loves both, so we usually have some on hand, but I thought this week would be a perfect time to bust out our monster popsicle molds!
Knowing exactly what goes into a popsicle it a great thing, and tailoring them to you wants and needs is even better! A healthy popsicle? Sure! There are tons of recipes out there for fruit and yogurt pops, and I’m sure I will try lots of them. But to kick off our homemade popsicle season, I thought I would make up a recipe of my own. Actually, I only made one up because all the ones online had ingredients I didn’t have in my kitchen…
Chocolate Banana Popsicles (enough to fill 4, 1/4 cup popsicle molds)
1 cup milk (I used the toddler organic whole milk, yes he still drinks whole milk because he is on the skinny side)
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!
Next time I am going to add a little more cocoa, as they weren’t chocolatey enough for me, but they were still super yummy!
