BANANA & PEANUT BUTTER FUDGESICLES WITH COCONUT MILK


Cool off during the hot summer months by whipping up a batch of these banana and peanut butter fudgesicles made with coconut milk.  They are a healthy frozen treat that kids (and adults!) will love!

Ingredients
Banana & Peanut Butter Fudgesicles:
  • 6 bananas frozen
  • 8 oz Greek yogurt* plain or vanilla
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup cocoa powder regular
  • ½ cup canned coconut milk full fat
  • 2 Tbsp honey, agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
Dipping Chocolate:
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 3 Tbsp honey, agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts

Instructions
Banana & Peanut Butter Fudgesicles:
  1. Allow bananas to thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes before beginning.
  2. Place all fudgesicle ingredients in a food processor. Process for 2-3 minutes, or until completely smooth. Transfer contents to a gallon-sized zip-top bag. <--This ensures easy filling of your popsicle tray!
  3. Fill each cavity of a 10-count popsicle tray with equal amounts of the fudgesicle liquid. Freeze fudgesicles for 10 minutes and then place popsicle sticks into each fudgesicle.
  4. Freeze fudgesicles for at least 6 hours, or overnight, before serving.
  5. Dipping Chocolate:
  6. Just before serving, take fudgesicles out of the freezer and let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes.
  7. Combine ¼ cup cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons coconut oil and 3 tablespoons sweetener in a medium-sized bowl and whisk to combine. Make sure dipping chocolate stays warm to ensure easy dipping of the fudgesicles.
  8. Run popsicle tray under warm water for 10-15 seconds to help loosen up the fudgesicles. Remove fudgesicles, one at a time, and dip each into the dipping chocolate. Sprinkle with peanuts and enjoy!**
