Just a short and sweet post today. I’ve been visiting my sister and her family for the weekend, so my thoughts are far from blogging! Last week I met my little three month old nephew for the first time. And he’s won my heart.

Family time has been rich with good conversations, easy dinners, plenty of playtime with the little guy, walks in scenic areas, an outdoor Amos Lee concert, and these tasty and refreshing popsicles. I created the recipe before I left for this trip, but couldn’t help but go out to buy popsicle molds to make them for my chocolate-loving relatives once I got here. Sweetened entirely with fruit and just a bit of stevia, they taste indulgent and super creamy. If you don’t have stevia, feel free to use about a tablespoon of maple syrup or honey instead.

Looking for more frozen treat ideas? The dog days of summer are just getting started. Here are a few that have made my mouth water lately:

Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Pops

Makes about 4 popsicles

 

2 medium, ripe bananas, sliced and frozen

¾ cup canned coconut milk (full fat)

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

10 drops liquid stevia

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Divide among popsicle molds, insert sticks, and freeze until solid or for at least 5 hours. Serve.

Tip: To easily loosen the pops from the mold, run the mold until hot water for about 10 seconds before pulling the pops out.

  2. What a lucky little babe to have an Aunt like you! These popsicles would make my kids very happy! What kind of liquid stevia do you use? Thanks so much for linking to my ice cream :)

  3. These sound so great, Hallie! Hope you have a great time with your family! :)

  4. Maggie: I use plain Sweet Leaf liquid stevia. Would like to try NuNaturals at some point, but so far I love Sweet Leaf!

  5. Thanks — this sounds like just what I want for a snack this afternoon.

    What fun to get to know your little nephew!

  6. I’ve recently come across your website. So many fantastic recipes!! :-) I’ve printed off lots and am looking forward to trying them. I made these this morning so they’d be ready for when the boys came home from school…….they were a huge hit with both the boys!! :-)

  7. These look perfect to make for the holiday weekend!

  8. I just made these for my kids, and there was a little leftover. Delicious! The popsicles are freezing, and I’m enjoying a chocolate smoothie. Thank you!
