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.
(You can find similar ones online here, here, and here.)
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.

Delish! I need these right now. 🙂
What is the consistency? I tried to make these but without the yogurt a few days ago and it was too icey
It’s slightly icy, but the yogurt adds a bit of a creamier texture. I think it’s a great blend of the two!

Oh yum! I could go for one of these right now!!
Those look so sleek and delicious! I am so bad at waiting for stuff to actually freeze- I think I would end up eating them as a semi frozen mush smoothie thing ;).
Haha, luckily I forgot about them for a bit while they froze 😉
Yum! We love making homemade freezer pops and these sound amazing!
I can’t wait to make more and experiment using more ingredients!
I lost my popsicle molds awhile ago, but one of my plans for august is to experiment with making popsicles in the shiny new ones I got as a bar exam treat for myself! This recipe looks great, I may try it with coconut milk instead since I’m allergic to nuts (but love bananas + chocolate!)

I’m so glad you mentioned those molds are at TJ Maxx! I legit almost bought that same mold on Amazon the other day for way too much $$… excuse me while I run to TJ’s! 😛
Well, they only had them in one color and I snatched the very last box… but yes, they are there! 😉
Those pops look good, love to try one of this back at my kitchen. Maintaining healthy life and eating delicious food is our goal, by keeping balance on the daily foods we ate.
