Banana Date Popsicles

by Josée

As I mentioned in my previous post, these are tasty and healthy but I find the texture a little different. My Hubby likes the texture, he says the pops remind him of frozen yogurt. I would definitely make them again.

Banana and Date Pops

6 large ripe bananas (sliced)
1 cup chopped pitted dates
1 cup milk
1 cup plain yogurt
2 teaspoons honey (heated 30 seconds)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1) Put bananas, dates*, milk, and yogurt in food processor/blender until smooth
2) Add honey & vanilla extract; process/blend again to combine.
3) Fill pop molds, insert sticks, freeze for 6 hours.
4) Remove and let stand for 5 minutes before molds come off.

* My dates were rock-solid so I softened them up by boiling them in water for 10 minutes or so.

This recipe is from Pops!: Icy Treats for Everyone. Enjoy!

This sounds so yummy! I am going to print your receipe and try it….you own this book I take it?
I might beg/borrow or even just photocopy a few pages! This would be a VAST improvment over the frozen 100% juice ones I make! 😉

I actually don't own it. I inter-library loaned it from the library about a month ago but before I returned it I copied down a bunch of the recipes. I can send you the recipes I typed out if you want 🙂

Monkey looks so big and grown up in this picture! Wow, they grow so fast. What a great summer treat that is healthy and tastes great. I'm looking forward to trying this idea as well!
