Inspired by a recipe at Vega-licious.com called Sugar Free Banana Popsicle, I just love this recipe although I adjusted the quantities from Elena’s original version. If you haven’t read my previous posts the eBooks at Vega-licious.com are really fantastic and include not only great recipes but insights for vegan eating.
With the weather getting warmer (will be high 30′s with humidex this coming week), I thought having a few popsicles on hand might be just what we need!!
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 2 tbsp cocoa
In food processor, process bananas. Fill popsicle mold 1/3 full with banana. Add strawberries to food processor and blend remaining banana and strawberries. Fill popsicle another 1/3 full with banana/strawberry mixture. Add cocoa to food processor and blend with remaining banana/strawberry mixture. Top popsicle molds with 1/3 cocoa mixture. Attached lids and freeze for a couple of hours and store in freezer for a week (although they likely won’t last that long ).
I had a little extra of the banana/strawberry/cocoa mixture – ok, I had to hold myself back from just inhaling it instead I put it in a small dish and into the freezer!! Remove from the freezer about 15-20 minutes before serving for a nice almost pudding like desert!! You can top with a strawberry and sprig of mint!! There’s always a creative way to adjust the uses for all these wonderful creations )
