Peanut Butter Banana Creamsicles

 

Hi friends!  Thank you for stopping by today!

I’m making popsicles here and we’re under a heavy rainfall warning with parts of our city and surrounding areas being evacuated due to flooding.  Thankfully we’re in an area that is safe from flooding, and I’m so grateful for that.  It’s been a weeeeeird summer so far.  Crazy rain, SO many thunderstorms and even a couple tornado warnings thrown in.  What on Earth is going on?!

So why am I making popsicles then?  I’m not sure really.  I guess because I’m stuck at home and I’m pretending it’s summer?

Peanut Butter Banana Creamsicles {A Pretty Life}

This is a fun recipe to add to your summer make lists…
The popsicles are creamy, banana-y and peanutbutter-y all at the same time (they’re actually more like creamsicles than popsicles).  SO good.

Just a nice refreshing treat if we were ever to need some refreshing in this part of the world what with all the rain.  But I’m not complaining.  😉

Peanut Butter Banana Creamsicles

Servings 8 -10

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or white sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas sliced
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the coconut milk and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  2. Once the coconut milk mixture has cooled to at least room temperature, add the milk, bananas and peanut butter to a blender.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze. Note: if you are using wooden sticks, freeze the mixture until it is slushy, then insert the sticks and freeze until solid.

Enjoy!

Have a delicious day!

  • Reply Nicolette @ momnivores dilemma June 21, 2013 at 7:58 PM I love that you suggested coconut sugar! It holds up really well in baking almost a brown sugar substitute. I've had popsicles on my mind- its one way I sneak extra veggies in the boys. That vitamix is worth it's weight in gold. Glad your home was safe! Praying for your Neighbors... Nic

  • Reply Jelli June 28, 2013 at 7:26 AM What a unique and yummy sounding recipe. I love making smoothies similar to this, so why not try a popsicle?! Seems like the perfect pregnancy treat too, since it's pretty low in sugar. Thanks for sharing, Jo-Anna. Will be pinning, for sure!
