When I was growing up, we spent a lot of time on Balboa Island during the summer months, and we’d always get Balboa bars and 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).  These homemade popsicles are a perfect mix of a Balboa bar and frozen banana.

ALMOND MILK POPSICLE RECIPE

Once you’ve had your first bite of these yogurt popsicles, you will be completely hooked.

  • Unsweetened almond milk (or another vegan milk- I often use a blend of almond and coconut milk)
  • Greek yogurt (for vegans use coconut yogurt)
  • Creamy almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • Ripe bananas
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Roasted almonds, finely ground

Note:  If the popsicle mix isn’t sweet enough for your taste, then you can add 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup (or honey)

HOW TO MAKE POPSICLES

Making popsicles during the summer months is one of my favorite things to make!  They’re quick and easy to make, then you just pop them in the freezer and forget about them.  These yogurt popsicles come together in about 10 minutes, but then they’ll need to set in the freezer for 4-6 hours (overnight even better).  

  1. Add the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape the sides down with a spatula as needed.
  2. Divide the mixture into the popsicle molds, tapping gently to remove any air. 
  3. Place the lid on the popsicle mold and insert the popsicle sticks.
  4. Freeze 4-6 hours or until completely frozen.
  5. Prepare chocolate sauce.
  6. Toast almonds and process in a food processor.
  7. Remove yogurt popsicles from molds.
  8. Dip frozen popsicles in chocolate sauce and then roll in roasted nuts.
  9. After the chocolate solidifies, store the dipped popsicles in freezer bags in the freezer.

CHOCOLATE SAUCE RECIPE

This is a great chocolate sauce for ice cream and it’s made with just 2 ingredients.  It really adds a nice touch to these Almond Milk Popsicles

  • Dark chocolate
  • Coconut oil

HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE SAUCE

This chocolate dipping sauce comes together in about 7-10 minutes start-to-finish.

  1. Combine the chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat.  Stir frequently to keep from scorching.  When the chocolate has completely melted, remove from heat and set aside.  Cool the chocolate completely before using.
