DIY Popsicles: Chocolate Banana

Although the warm weather has yet to arrive in Olympia, the homemade popsicle making has begun. Plus, we had two bananas that were nearing the end so I decided on chocolate banana popsicles.

  • 3 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 bananas

Simply toss all the ingredients into the blender and blend! Pour the mix into the popsicle mold and freeze for at least 3 hours.

Some extra mix was leftover, and I hate wasting food so I poured the remainder into small shape molds and froze them for an hour. This allowed the chocolate banana mix to solidify before adding the popsicle stick, plastic fork, and coffee stirrer.

Here comes the semi-sad part: I couldn’t get the popsicles out of the molds! The DIY popsicles came out perfectly, but the others did not. I scooped out the popsicles and served them in a bowl.

That's so crazy you haven't gotten the heat yet! I have a couple of friends that live in the northwest and they keep talking about the rain and cooler temps... we're over 100 degrees in Utah and I'm dying! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. You're adorable and I'm excited to follow along!

Yummm.... chocolate banana. Now I have a craving. :D

Did you try running the molds under a little hot water? That usually does the trick for me and they pop right out.

Sage said...

Yes and they still woudn't budge! :( The plastic popsicle stick slid right out so that's why I ended up scooping the popsicles out. I guess I need new molds, bummer!
