Equipment

  • Popsicle Mold

Ingredients

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Add the bananas to a large mixing bowl, then mash them (you can use a potato masher or a fork).
  • Add the maple syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt.
  • Use a whisk to mix well.
  • Transfer that mixture to a popsicle mold (this recipe makes 5 banana chocolate popsicles but you can scale it up or down as needed).
  • Freeze until hard (this will take a minimum of 5 hours).

Notes

  • To make this recipe without using a popsicle mold, use small plastic cups lined with plastic wrap. Pour in the banana chocolate mixture, then place the cups in the freezer. Insert popsicle sticks when they are semi-frozen (this should take about 2 hours), then continue to freeze for a minimum of 3 more hours.
  • To add an extra layer of flavor and texture to these banana chocolate popsicles, once they're frozen solid, remove them from the popsicle mold, then dip them in melted dark chocolate before sprinkling on some chopped peanuts, pecans, or walnuts. Then place the popsicles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and return them to the freezer for at least 30 minutes before serving.
