Hellooooo summer!!!  I am so glad you’re here!!  And what better way to start the summer off than with Almond Milk Popsicles dipped in dark chocolate and roasted almonds!?

ALMOND-MILK-POPSICLES

I had breakfast yesterday at the beach with my favorite peeps! We dined on the sand – fed the birds, watched the waves and took in the ocean air. It was a perfect relaxing way to start the weekend!

Then I went home and made these popsicles.   When I was growing up – we would spend a lot of time on Balboa Island during the summers…. I always got my bathing suits at a little shop called the Persimmon Tree (which is still there), and we always got either Balboa Bars or frozen bananas. A Balboa Bar is a wedge of vanilla ice cream on a stick – dipped in chocolate – then dipped in your favorite topping (nuts or sprinkles).

So I wanted to make a healthier version of Balboa Bars to usher in Summer 2016.  These Almond Milk Popsicles are made with Blue Diamond Almond Milk, some almond butter and bananas, then dipped in dark chocolate and roasted almonds.  The thing that’s so great about these healthy popsicles – is you can eat as many as you want without an ounce of guilt…. and without losing any sleep over fitting into your swimsuit!
