Recipe: Homemade Fudgesicle

My girls have been eating too much junk.  The end result is they're begging for more.  To beat the requests for freezies, I decided to try making my own fudgie ice cream snacks.  

Banana Fudgesicle
  • 3 VERY ripe bananas
  • 1/4 c chocolate chips
  • 2 T low fat peanut butter
  1. Barely melt chocolate chips
  2. Stir peanut butter into melted chocolate
  3. Use food processor, Magic Bullet or blender to mix all 3 ingredients.
  4. Use cooking spray on popsicle forms
  5. Pour mix into popsicle forms
  6. Freeze for 4+ hours
  7. Eat!
This treat was very rich.  Next time I'll make it with less peanut butter and chocolate.  Might try replacing chocolate with cocoa.  I'm sure you could make it without the peanut butter for those who need to avoid nuts.

Really enjoyed the one I tried tonight.  Way more than this guy enjoyed his Nonfat Milk, Sugar, Corn Syrup Solids, Cocoa (Processed With Alkali) (Adds A Trivial Amount Of Fat), Modified Food Starch, Soy Protein Isolate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Mono and Diglycerides (Adds A Trivial Amount Of Fat), Cellulose Gum, Guar Gum, Polysorbate 65 & Polysorbate 80, Carrageenan, Salt, Natural Flavor and Artificial Flavor treat.

But it's worth noting that it was probably a shortage of water that has me craving the sweets. These seem like a much better choice then the chocolate chip cookies I wanted to make!
