Chocolate Almond Milk Banana Popsicles

It’s time for another pop recipe post! These pops are SO simple, just two ingredients, blend, freeze and bam-healthy yummy popsicles.  Dairy free (yay almond milk!) and packed with all sorts of beneficial nutrients, this is the sort of “dessert” you and your babes can enjoy guilt-free and are a perfect addition for vegans or kiddos with milk allergies.  Bananas are packed with potassium and fiber, aid in the absorption of calcium, and contain provitamin A carotenoids which protect the body from everything from certain cancers to diabetes.  Almond milk is high in antioxidants, full of vitamins and minerals, and contain lots of omega-3 fatty acids.  See what I mean by healthy?  Additionally, these pops double as fabulous drawing tools in case your little one gets tired of eating them…halfway through her second pop Little C decided to paint a popsicle masterpiece.

  • 2 cups chocolate almond milk

  1. Blend frozen bananas and 1 cup almond milk
  2. Slowly add 2nd cup of almond milk
  3. Blend until creamy
  4. For a special treat, add some peanut butter!
  5. Scoop mixture into popsicle molds
  6. Freeze for at least two hours
  7. Serve and enjoy!
