Peanut Butter Banana Ice Pops

My ice pop mold came in!! Yay!! It’s about freaking time that’s all I have to say. I think the post office was holding it hostage for a couple of days just to make my life miserable. I wanted to go a little crazy for the first one and decided to throw whatever I wanted into a blender, freeze it and call it an ice pop. It actually worked out well! It’s like a peanut butter, banana and honey sandwich in ice pop form! You will find, like I did, that making ice pops can go a long way. They are very simple and extremely affordable. They are the perfect treat.


Full of Peanut Butter!

Ice Pops!

So the ice pop making process wasn’t all raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. It was actually a bit tougher than I thought it was going to be. The actual blending of the ice pop was of course simple, but the actual process of removing the pop out of the mold was a whole different story. No one ever told me that peanut butter was sticky! Ha but seriously, I completely forgot that peanut butter is sticky, which made it extremely difficult to remove from the molds. In hindsight, I probably should have started with something simple and fruity, but hey you have to take risks once in a while. Word of advice: if you find the pops difficult to remove run them under warmish water for a minute or two then wiggle them out. This seemed to work for us =).

These ice pops are hearty AND delicious!

So simple!

I didn’t pair this recipe with a beer. Sorry guys =( I didn’t find it appetizing. I will however be ATTEMPTING to make an ice pop with beer. I know the challenges that lie ahead. Beer, especially beer that’s high in alcohol content, is not the easiest thing in the world to freeze because beer has a lower freezing point, but I am not going to get all scientific on you. Let’s just say it’s going to be hard. I have faith though!

Stay tuned for other great ice pop flavors!


I went a little photo crazy on this one. Well, Zach took the photos of the ice pops, but I went a little crazy in wanting them all over this post. I do believe the photo content outweighs the written content on this one, but who cares. Tomorrow I’m making something fruity. I’m not quite sure what it will be yet. I’m thinking maybe a strawberry shortcake type ice pop. What do y’all think?

Oh by the way, the ice pops were delicious =). I may have forgotten to mention that. Anyway, have a great night everyone!
