I love making homemade popsicles. They can be made very healthy or can be made indulgent. I like having the ability to know what is in them and to control how much sugar is in them especially. I love making smoothie popsicles where you just freeze a healthy smoothie in a popsicle mold. My daughter loves these and thinks that she is getting ice cream.

We are also big fans of banana ice cream. We had some leftover in the freezer from a previous blog recipe (it freezes great in small mason jars, microwave for 20-30 seconds to soften) yesterday. After a walk around town, I brought some outside for Adalyn and I and we enjoyed it as a snack together on our back steps. Love!

Usually, I make my popsicles super healthy. These bars are still fairly healthy but I wanted them to be more of a dessert for when you're craving something richer. I made the popsicles with chocolate protein, peanut butter and plain Greek yogurt. If you want them to be more chocolaty, you can add some cocoa powder but the protein powder did make them pretty chocolaty. I went all out by drizzling them in melted chocolate and covering them in crushed peanuts.

These make the perfect hot summer day treat. They are easy to make and can be served at a summer backyard picnic.

  1. These look delicious! Do you see any reason to be concerned with giving Adalyn stevia at her age? I use a lot of it myself, but have wondered about giving my 14mo products that contain it (like ice cream, smoothies, etc.).

    1. Thank you! To be honest, I am not sure. Everything in moderation I believe. Once in awhile should not hurt. I have never read anything against stevia and toddlers : )
