Chocolate Peanut Butter Pops

Sneh at Gel’s Kitchen is hosting an event called No Time to Cook, highlighting recipes that can be made in 15 to 20 minutes.  This month’s theme is chocolate.  I haven’t mentioned this here before, but for the past month and a half or so, I’ve been avoiding eating sugar, for reasons that I’ll probably end up explaining soon.  So I wanted to make something that was naturally sweetened.  One of the best natural sweeteners is banana, and it works really well in these simple, quick, pops.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pops

  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 small or 1/2 of a medium avocado
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • milk or almond/soy milk to thin the mixture
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt the chocolate over medium heat.  In a blender or a food processor, combine all ingredients and a few splashes of milk.  Blend until completely homogeneous, adding just enough milk to get the mixture to come together.  In the end the mix should be about the consistency of thin pudding.  Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. That’s it!
