Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles (V+GF): Just 6 ingredients to creamy, delicious chocolate peanut butter popsicles that taste like an ice cream sundae. Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free.
Happy Summer everyone! Who else is feeling ridiculously happy about the summertime vibes?
Anyone else bringing out their floral print jumpsuits? (I had to switch out my fruit print jumpsuit for the summer version). How about those red polka dot bikinis we discussed earlier? And maybe, just maybe, you’re dusting off those super cute got-em-on-day-after-Christmas-sale discount sunglasses from the back of your foyer junk drawer?
Most importantly, anyone having a hankering for chocolate peanut butter banana popsicles? Yes, that was a mouthful to type. I mean… oh, you know what I mean!
Uh… back to the summer vibes. To celebrate, I thought now would be a good time to bring out them popsicles. After all, what says summer more than popsicles? You know, besides swimming pools, barbecues, county fairs, swimsuits, sunglasses, picnics, pink lemonade… okay, fine. Lots of things say summer, but this is by far one of the best things.
That you can eat. What could be better than that?
Just one post ago, I shared with you my Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies. Oh, how time flies. Those were the days, right? <– I have no clue why I’m asking so many questions today. Anyone else feeling social? 🙂 There I go again. *Blushing.
Anywho, when Erik and I were gulping down every last drop of those seriously delicious smoothies, it hit us, why not freeze these guys? We’ve always been interested in the fine art of popsicle-making, however, loathe to actually purchase popsicles. We’re funny that way.
We finally took the jump and bought a popsicle maker. Can I just say, BEST. PURCHASE. EVER. Duuuuude. Duuuuudette. Homeslice… (Okay, now I want pizza.)
But this thing… it’s seriously one of the best inventions ever. Besides the infamous fan-whisk, of course. Like, any flavor combo you can imagine can be put into here! Erik and I have actually been discussing the merits of making an avocado coconut cream popsicle, but the logistics got all funny and then we got sleepy. Summer siesta time, amiriiight?
In the mean time, spoiler alert!, we’ve been testing A LOT of popsicle recipes. For now, enjoy our first creation: the chocolate, peanut butter, banana lover’s dream. And, YES, I will be making an over-the-top version of this treat. Stay tuned!
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles are:
- made with just 6 simple ingredients

What do you think? What popsicle flavors are you looking forward to? Do you have a popsicle maker? <–Yup, there I go with all of the questions again. What can I say? The summer makes me energetic!

- Add bananas and almond milk into a blender. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as necessary. Add peanut butter. Blend until smooth.
