These chocolate banana popsicles are perfect for a warm autumn afternoon, or even more perfect as an after dinner treat when you need something just a little bit sweet to take the edge off! Hubby – who does not like being called “Hubby” (from herein will be referred to as Mr T) and I have been eating these each night for the last few weeks most nights after dinner. Meanwhile I have been coming up with lots more different combinations that I am eager to try.
I mean these popsicles turned out so perfectly, I couldn’t believe it when they come out of the moulds they actually looked like a store bought one, except for the dinky plastic handle. Its re-usable so I’ll give it that, and the popsicle moulds I have are from spotlight and they were very inexpensive, yet have to date performed very well! I’m thinking about getting some more!
One of the things that I use to judge my creations on is whether or not Mr T likes it, particularly when he is laying on the couch and yells out “Hey Darling, can you grab me one of those chocolate sticks from the freezer please? I secretly like this, as it gives me a bit of a buzz that he enjoys my kitchen creations.
Although someone who doesn’t enjoy these popsicles so much is furbaby Charlie as he can no longer have his stick tug of wars with his father. You see in the past when we have eaten store bought popsicles, and even now occasionally, Charlie will sit beside you calmly waiting for you to finish the popsicle and make the wooden stick free from sticky goodness so he can grab it in his mouth for a tug of war – that is Mr T holds it in his hand (ok sometimes in his teeth as well) and there is a short (3 to 5 sec) battle of the stick. It really is quite cute.

Charlie always wins and then I pick up the pieces! But wooden popsicle sticks in our household are becoming a rarity these days so Charlies days of popsicle stick tug of war are few and far between. All is well though, and yes the plastic popsicle sticks are safely tucked away from eager beaver Charlie much to his disappointment.

These chocolate banana popsicles are the perfect after dinner sweet treat to those cure cravings and only 51 calories!
- 2 medium Bananas
- 2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- 1 cup Coconut Milk
- ½ cup Cashew nut paste
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla bean paste
- 3 – 5 drops Liquid Chocolate Stevia, or unflavoured stevia drops
Place all ingredients except banana into high speed blender and blitz to combine
- In a bowl, mash the bananas
- Add bananas to blender and blitz again until combined
- Pour evenly into 6 moulds and freeze for 6 hours before eating
- Liquid chocolate stevia drops are available at most healthy food shops. Liquid stevia is 3 times more sweet than sugar or granulated stevia so do use it sparingly.
- If you don't have chocolate flavoured stevia drops, you could use 2 tablespoons of sugar free maple syrup or honey, however if you use honey, the calorie count would be different.
