Ingredients

  • Bananas
  • Nut milk, Almond, cashew, etc. or freshly brewed green tea work. For creamy fruit popsicles, you’ll need to start with a base of bananas and nut milk. They are key to getting a creamy, smooth, velvety texture that freezes well. Green tea will make them more icy. I used a 50/50 mixture of almond milk and tea to make the batch below.
  • Fruit. , I recommend strawberries, blueberries, peaches, cherries, and mango. They blend beautifully and maintain a creamy texture.
  • Optional: , Protein Powder, Chia Seeds, Collagen Powder, Chopped Fruit or Shredded Coconut, for texture
  • A Blender
  • Popsicle Molds
  • a Freezer

Instructions

  • Blend your fruit and nut milk with bananas.
  • Fill each mold cavity with the blended fruit mixture.
  • Pop on the sticks.
  • Transfer to your and freeze for 2 hours.
  • After they’re solid, enjoy.
  • NOTE: You may have to run hot water on the outside of your molds to release the popsicle from the mold. I always have to.

NOTES

  • Avoid using ‘watery’ or fruits commonly found in juice, like watermelon, orange juice, or apples. They tend to have a watered down taste and icy, texture.
  • You’ll need 1/2 cup of nut milk for every banana you use. 1 banana + 1/2 cup nut milk will fill 6 molds about 1/3 of the way.
  • I use the other fruits to create different flavors and fill the rest of the mold.
  • I blend the banana and nut milk and transfer it to a measuring cup. Then I blend some of it with other fruits to make my own flavors.
  • I usually blend a little bit of the banana milk mixture with one fruit at a time. In this case, I used 1/4 cup of the banana mixture with 1/2 cup of blueberries.
  • Mix and match different fruits to make new flavor and color combinations.
  • You can also add one mixture (color 1) to the bottom of the mold, then layer on other colors/flavors to create gradients.
  • Add chunks of fresh fruit to the mixture.  I like chunks of chopped peaches, banana, cherries, strawberries, and blueberries the best.  They freeze well and look pretty.
