A super healthy dairy free popsicle made from peanut butter and banana.
It is most definitely popsicle season in the UK at the moment.
I am loving the warmer weather and our local shops are too judging by the amount of times they have ran out of ice lollies and ice cream.
Buying single popsicles can be expensive, especially if you have more than one child to feed so I would definitely recommend making your own at home.
How To Make Popsicles
I purchased an ice pop maker recently and am really pleased with it. You can get a wide variety of ice pop makers online that vary in price, size, material and how many popsicles they hold.
The one I use allows you to make up to 10 ice lollies at a time, so I have been able to make and store a range of flavours and combinations so my fussy eater has a choice (like these fruit popsicles).
I have also found it easier to use the wooden sticks rather than the plastic re-useable ones that come as part of other molds.
I know it’s less environmentally friendly but my fussy eater and her friends would dump the plastic sticks in random parts of the house are garden, never to be seen again and so I couldn’t use the molds again anyway!
Peanut Butter & Banana Popsicles
My latest concoction has been these Peanut Butter & Banana Popsicles. Honestly, they are the bomb!
Obviously you have to like both these ingredients (and together!) but if you do you won’t believe how deliciously creamy these are.
My fussy eater genuinely believed she was eating ice cream but little did she know she was munching on a super healthy, all natural, dairy free snack with only 3 ingredients!
My fussy eater seemed happy with the taste of these popsicles but if your kids would prefer them a bit sweeter you could easily add some honey when blending.
If you know of other healthy popsicle recipes please do let me know. It’s a bit sad but I really do get quite excited by sneaking in extra fruit and veg into my fussy eater’s diet (yeah I know, I need to get a life!)
