Frozen Peanut Butter, Banana and Raspberry Pops

PB banana rasp pops2

This recipe from Super Healthy Kids showed up in my Facebook feed. They looked so good that I just had to make them with some adjustments. They are a great afternoon treat! I used a NUK freezer tray to make these. Dixie cups, silicone ice trays or even popsicle molds would work too. PB banana rasp pops

The original recipe called for 1 cup of honey and I only used a few tablespoons. I also added some banana and only made half of the yogurt, milk and peanut butter mix. Ingredients: 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons peanut butter (or any other nut butter) 1 banana 1/2 cup yogurt, plain 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened 3 tablespoons honey (or more if desired) 1 tablespoon chia seeds soaked a little water (optional) (I soaked mine for about 10 min) 3/4 cup raspberries 3/4 cup orange juice (I squeezed the juice out of 2 oranges) 1 ounce hemp seed (optional) Instructions: Blend nut butter, banana, yogurt, milk, honey and chia seeds until smooth. Pour the mixture into molds until they are filled half way or three-quarters of the way filled. Cover and freeze for approximately one hour. Next, stir together the raspberries and orange juice, divide among your molds and then insert the sticks (I waited about 30 minutes before inserting the sticks so they wouldn’t fall over). Top off the pops with some hemp seed if desired (or add the hemp seeds before you pour the raspberry/juice mix). Place back in the freezer until completely frozen. This can take a few hours and up to 6-8 hours depending on how large your mold is.
