Unbelievable. I love everything about these pops. Chocolate. Peanut butter. Banana. Greek yogurt. Delicious! For me, these pops will probably end up as my special once a week treat because they are so decadent…and over 200 calories each. A dessert rule that seems to work for many people is to keep sugary treats to one per day (150 calories or less) and limit “special” treats (like this) to one per week. It’s fun to have a treat every now and then especially when you eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
What’s your dessert policy?
- In a blender or smoothie maker, combine banana, Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla extract and peanut butter. Mix on medium setting until smooth and fully combined.
- Place 4 (3 oz size) plastic cups onto a plate. Pour mixture into cups filling each about 3/4 full. Insert short wooden craft/popsicle sticks into the center of each cup. Place plate into the freezer and allow pops to set for 2 hours or until completely frozen.
- Once pops have frozen, place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted (stir). Remove pops from the freezer and dip the top of each pop in the melted chocolate and then into the crushed peanuts. Place pops back into the freezer for 10-15 minutes until chocolate and peanuts have set. Enjoy!
