Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles

22 Jun

Hey Everyone !  I have been loving this weather lately.  After my quiet beach date the other day, I sat outside the next day and finished my book.  Those few hours I now have a nice looking tan line going on.  I wore a strapless dress yesterday and seriously, it’s like nobody has ever seen tan lines before, my chest has never gotten so much attention.

okay they are pretty bad, I admit.

Last night, me and my cousin went to a Kip Moore concert.  I love outdoor concerts in the summer, and totally wish there was some more around here.  We just set up chairs, drank some beer, and people watched.  I couldn’t help to laugh at some of the drunks there, more because I was THAT girl last concert haha #YOLO.

Half way through the concert we ended up sneaking down and ended up in the 11th row seating.  I was dieing on the inside, I wasn’t drunk enough to be doing stuff like that lol.

oh hay kip!

Today, after a beast leg workout, I had a few clients then came home to sit outside.  Wanted to work on my tan lines.  I also was so in the mood for banana soft serve.  Then again, when am I not?  So I threw a bunch of my favorite stuff in the blender, poured in into popsicle molds, and magic happened.  I mean really, eating anything in the form of a popsicle is probably good.  Though I was never a popsicle eating kid, I was the one who got that expensive cookies and creme cup from the ice cream man each time lol.  But peanut butter, banana, chocolate, how could you go wrong with these.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles
3 large banana
1/2 cup peanut butter; creamy
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder (or chocolate protein powder)
1 tbs pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Fill popsicle molds (depends on size, mine filled 8) and place popsicle stick in middle and freeze overnight.  Once frozen, place molds under water for about 30 seconds to loosen it up (and with a knife I went around edges then they quickly popped out).  Then place in a container in the freezer until ready to serve. Enjoy!

*I got my molds at the dollar store, they are sold pretty much everywhere in the summer!

kid approved, score!

I have a date with my DVR tonight because I have a wedding to do before work tomorrow.  Seriously future brides, don’t make your weddings too early.  This means your hair and makeup has to be done at 4am, meaning your hairdresser will hate you.  Just saying.  Then going on my friends boat tomorrow night, trying to keep it low key.  Sunday I am going out east with my groupon to a winery.  Damn you groupon, your making me poor! Haha

What are you up to this weekend?

Were you more of a popsicle or cup/cone kid?

Are you a groupon hoarder like me? haha

    OUCH! That burn looks SO painful! 😦 At least it sounds like you had an awesome time at the concert you went to. Country concerts are the best!

    I was the… anything that had chocolate… kid :mrgreen: I liked cones a lot more than popsicles, but I was also a huge fan of those vanilla popsicle things that were covered in a layer of chocolate. Oooomg and now I want ice cream at 9 PM. Thanks a lot 😛 These sound SO good though. I may just have to sub out the PB for AB and make a batch for myself.

    Oh my gosh!!! Your tan lines!! I had the same tan lines when I went to southern Florida a few years ago. My friends thought that it was hilarious! As for popsicles, I never really liked them as a kid. I always made my mom get me the cookies n’ cream cup from the icecream man too. Now I like them, so I will be trying these out!

    Yummy, I love the recipe. I will have to try this because I love to freeze all sorts of things. I actually picked up these same molds the other day at the dollar store by my house.
