{Dairy Free} Chocolate Banana Creamies

IMG_7307
Summer showed up out of nowhere! The kids and I have been cooling off by playing in water wherever we can get it along with snacking on some cool treats. As a kid, a special treat in the summer was a Creamy. Have you ever had a Creamy? The originals are made of milk, some sugar and corn syrup, with flavors like chocolate, banana, and orange. Now of course there are probably a few more flavors added to the list, but my favorites were always the originals.

My normal homemade popsicle recipe usually is just some blended fresh fruit and/or juice in a popsicle mold, but sometimes I like to go all out. With the strict diet we follow thanks to my youngest daughter, coming up with clean eating, gluten free, dairy free, simple, and yummy substitutes can be tricky.

I was so excited when I came up with the recipe for Dairy Free Orange Creamsicles, but I still wanted chocolate or banana Creamies too!  Which got me thinking...why not Chocolate Banana Creamies!? No stove top prep time with these either. Just a blender, some popsicle molds, and a freezer.



{Dairy Free} Chocolate Banana Creamies

Makes about a dozen popsicles

 

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. If using the cacao nibs, you can grind them into a powder before mixing them with everything in the blender, or if using dark chocolate chips (I recommend 50% or higher for the most health benefits) then just quickly melt them before adding them to the blender.
  2. Combine the coconut milk, bananas, honey, cacao, and vanilla in a blender until everything is smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into popsicle molds and set in the freezer for several hours.
  4. Once they're frozen, run some warm water over the outside of the mold to loosen and make it easier to get the popsicle out.

Enjoy!
