Easy Homemade Chocolate Banana Popsicles

With the arrival of the warmer weather, comes the purchasing of freezes and popsicles! My son loves both, so we usually have some on hand, but I thought this week would be a perfect time to bust out our monster popsicle molds!

Knowing exactly what goes into a popsicle it a great thing, and tailoring them to you wants and needs is even better! A healthy popsicle? Sure! There are tons of recipes out there for fruit and yogurt pops, and I’m sure I will try lots of them. But to kick off our homemade popsicle season, I thought I would make up a recipe of my own. Actually, I only made one up because all the ones online had ingredients I didn’t have in my kitchen…

Chocolate Banana Popsicles (enough to fill 4, 1/4 cup popsicle molds)

milk, cocoa, sugar, banana. so easy

1 cup milk (I used the toddler organic whole milk, yes he still drinks whole milk because he is on the skinny side)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp sugar (taste it after 1 tbsp, you might not want it this sweet)

1 ripe mashed up banana

Mix everything together, and pour into molds! Freeze and enjoy!

Next time I am going to add a little more cocoa, as they weren’t chocolatey enough for me, but they were still super yummy!

love these little popsicle molds!

  1. Awesome! I’ll have to try this for my little ones. Maybe I’ll hold the sugar altogether. Looks like you used a frozen banana? That would be lovely because I have oh so many of them in my freezer waiting to be used and banana bread doesn’t look likely any time soon.

    1. You are right, it is a frozen banana, thawed so it could be mashed! I always have lots in the freezer too! With the banana in it, you probably don’t need the sugar. I had mixed the sugar in, the banana was an after thought :(

      I think I might also try mixing it in the magic bullet next time, to get the cocoa really mixed evenly.
