I recently created these Chocolate Banana Homemade Popsicles, which are super yummy if you need a cold summer treat that is almost dairy-free.
Chocolate Bananas Homemade Popsicles
So I decided to create a popsicle that doesn’t contain milk since my husband is pretty allergic to the stuff. So, this popsicle is made up mostly of bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. Let’s say if you like that chocolate-covered frozen bananas that Disneyland sells than you’ll love these popsicles.
Today, quite a few of my talented friends joined me on this fun post. So, make sure to check out their yummy recipes at the bottom of this post.
I’ve made a version of this recipe with frozen bananas, and it turns out like yummy dairy-free ice cream. So, I thought, why not try it as a chocolate banana homemade popsicles. Well, I’m delighted that they turned out delicious and that my hubby is continually asking to have one. So, now that I captured photos of them for this post, I guess I’ll let him devour some. I did make a creamy custard popsicle that you can check out the recipe.
Do you make homemade popsicles? Looking back, I wished I had made them when my kiddos were young. It is always nice to feed the family things that you know exactly the ingredients. Don’t you wonder if we are eating way too much-processed foods?
Chocolate Banana Homemade Popsicles
- 4 bananas
- 1/2 cup peanut butter

- Place mixture in 10 popsicles molds and insert top and popsicle stick in each mold.
- Put in freezer and freeze for at least 4 hours.
- Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwaveable glass.
- Place in microwave and cook for about a minute or so. Make sure to mix at different intervals and check out if the chips are melting.
- Once the chocolate syrup is melted dip each frozen popsicles in the melted syrup.
I love that they are pretty much dairy-free (minus the milk in the chocolate chips) and still very delicious. Ok, I have a bit of trouble with getting my popsicles out of the snazzy popsicle molds. I’ve tried letting them sit out for a bit, turning the mold upside down and soaking in the bottom section. I finally found what worked best for me. But as you can see the creamy popsicle does melt a little bit, and they look homemade! Well, the reality is that I’m a real chef will honest results!
A few tricks on making popsicles
1. Pack the molds with your mixture. I didn’t always do this, and so I got gaps in my popsicles.
2. Set the mold in a glass of room temperature water for about 20 seconds to no more than 30 seconds.
3. If the stick comes out without the popsicle, don’t panic. Fill in the area around the stick and push the rest of the mixture back around the stick. Don’t worry that you are messing up the popsicle since you’ll refreeze it. Yes, I found out the hard way and had two popsicles sticks that came out of the mold, and the popsicle mixture didn’t.
4. After lifting the popsicles out of the molds place back in the freezer. A couple of minutes later dip them in the chocolate to create the outer shell. Freeze again to harden everything before eating your chocolate banana homemade popsicles.
5. Ok, after a few attempts, I realized that to get the individual popsicle molds out of the main container, I tweaked it to the side and they popped out. I hope to create a video for you in a bit.
I think I might try this silicon mold to see if the popsicles come out a bit easier.
I’m so glad you made the trek over to view my chocolate banana homemade popsicles post. And it would be just peachy if you have the time to make some of these popsicles. Until my next blog post, I hope you have a beautiful day!
