Ingredients

  • 2 medium ripe bananas (frozen)
  • 1 cup milk (unsweetened soymilk or dairy milk)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (choose one with no sugar added)
  • 1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Chop the frozen bananas into small pieces for easier blending.
  • Put the bananas, peanut butter, milk, and cocoa powder in a large food processor. Blend the ingredients until completely smooth. (You may need to stop the food processor and scrape down the sides with a spatula if ingredients are sticking.) 
  • Pour the blended mixture into a popsicle mold. Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze the mold for at least 6-8 hours (or overnight). Enjoy!

Notes

This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). The calorie count on this recipe depends on the size of the pop molds you use. I love these silicone pop molds from Amazon.
Even though this is a low-calorie treat, I’d still be mindful of the portion size. Some may find the low-protein fat/carb combo here very easy to overeat. I would not expect this snack to be nearly as filling as a higher protein snack with similar calories (e.g., plain Greek yogurt).
That said, these are some of the healthiest sugar free popsicles around in terms of nutrition. The sugar free popsicles from the store with artificial flavors and sweeteners typically have few essential vitamins and minerals. Aiming for added sugar free instead of sugar free means we can use nutrient-rich fruits in our pops.
You’re getting potassium, fiber, and vitamin C from the bananas. Peanut butter adds some heart-healthy fats, and the soymilk gives us protein and calcium. 
It’s true that these pops are higher in calories than most sugar free popsicles from the store. However, they’re also a far more nutritious option. Lower calorie doesn’t always mean healthiest or most nutritious!
 
Nutrition information is for one-sixth of the recipe. Exact nutrition information per popsicle will depend on the size of your pop molds and bananas, as well as the type of milk you use.
