Hi everyone!

It has been getting hot  around here and it is the perfect time to share a popsicle recipe with you today! I can’t believe I haven’t posted a single ice pop recipe on the blog this summer!

These are not your typical popsicles, because there is peanut butter in them. They are very simple to prepare, very nutritious and taste delicious!

The inspiration for this recipe came from one of my favorite smoothies, which I make for a mid morning snack very often It is a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie, which tastes amazing.

Besides a chocolate peanut butter banana layer, I also added a white chocolate peanut butter and strawberry layer. I used Peanut Butter And Company’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Peanut Butter.

To create the layers, you either have to be very careful, while pouring the liquid into the popsicle molds, or freeze for at least 10 minutes in between each layer.

To complete the look of these pops and also enhance the chocolate flavor, I drizzled some melted semi-sweet chocolate over them. If you are concerned, that the pops will melt, after you drizzle the chocolate, you can return them to the freezer for 10 more minutes, so the chocolate could set.

To remove the popsicles out of the molds, make sure you place molds under hot water for 30 seconds and then very gently pull them out.

They turned out so delicious! Sweet, creamy and refreshing! They can be vegan, if you use non dairy milk.
