Peanut Butter Banana Ice Pops
Incredibly easy. Delicious for baby AND parents.
First, you’ll need to pop a banana in the freezer for several hours.
Tick tock tick tock.
Okay, now that your banana is frozen, grab some milk and peanut butter. (See my post from yesterday about peanuts and peanut butter!)
Yes, my banana is sitting directly on the counter. But I do wipe it down before these pictures! And soon — SOON, I say! — I’ll have a lovely surface on which to take these super high quality, professional (iPhone camera) food photos.
Anyway, you’ll simply blend these ingredients until it’s nice and smooooth. (Say that out loud with me: “Smoooooooooth”.)
I have these fantastic little ice pop molds from Munchkin. (That’s an affiliate link, by the way.)
Pour your mixture into your molds.
They’ll need to freeze for at least 4 hours before you can enjoy them. I made them while I was cooking breakfast, so by the time lunch rolled around, they were ready!
This recipe makes a little too much for 6 mini ice pops. So I poured the rest of the mixture into a glass and had myself a small peanut butter banana smoothie. Yum!
It seems a bit silly to include a recipe card here, but I do like to be consistent. So here ya go:
- 1 frozen banana (which is why I said prep time is 3 hours)
- 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
- 1/4 cup of milk
- Peel and freeze a banana.
- Blend the frozen banana with the peanut butter and milk.
- Pour the mixture into ice pop molds.
- Freeze for 4+ hours.
