If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of in the summertime, it’s popsicles. Fruity, tart, sweet, light, or indulgent, I don’t recall ever not loving any version of the frozen treat growing up!
While I am a fan of anything fruity, this concoction is focused on the icy, chocolate-y goodness that holds it all together.
I cannot believe it took me so long to make my own dessert pops! I have been eyeing pop molds for years, and finally broke down and purchased this set on a recent trip into TJMaxx for under $8.
Making your own freezer pops is super easy. I love knowing exactly what ingredients are going in them, and the different combinations you can throw together are endless. The hardest part is choosing what to make and finding enough room in your freezer to let them set!
Today’s recipe is a tribute to one of Scott’s favorite desserts (the ever-popular banana split), and is coming to you thanks to a collaboration with Almond Breeze.
Beyond the delicious, rich taste and creamy, smooth texture, chocolate almond milk is a great way to sneak sweets into your diet without feeling guilty.
Chocolate almond milk clocks in at 120 calories per serving (1 cup), and is calcium enriched and lactose free. If you have been following the blog for any length of time, then you already know that I have been drinking a tall glass of chocolate almond milk before bed for years!
Pair that with two fruits that would be perfect for dipping in chocolate, and you have what I like to call a tasty, lightened up summer treat for a dessert or snack. And you don’t have to feel bad about indulging, either. These ingredients are all great for you!
Think of it as a light and nutritious chocolate smoothie, only cooler. Literally.
1 cup strawberries
2 cups Almond Breeze chocolate almondmilk
1 cup organic plain Greek yogurt
(makes six pops)
1. Combine ingredients into a high-powered blender. Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
2. Place into freezer to harden for at least 3-4 hours, or overnight depending on consistency.
3. Before taking the pops out of their molds, run them under warm water to loosen them up.
4. Remove ice pops from molds and enjoy a light and healthy dessert!
If you decide to give this recipe a try (which I totally think you should!), I hope you love them as much as we do.
