Chocolate Banana "Pudding Pops"

Who remembers eating Jell-O pudding pops growing up?  I sure do!

Last night at dinner my husband was going on and on about how the homemade Popsicle he was eating reminded him of the {old school} ones when he was a kid! (and then they couldn't stop laughing from doing Bill Cosby impersonations together-and yes, you are correct in thinking...my daughter, age 6, doesn't have a clue who Bill Cosby is!) 

Chocolate Banana "Pudding Pops"


  • 1 c Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk 
  • 1 Frozen or fresh banana
1) Blend the two together in a blend and pour into Popsicle molds. 
2) Freeze

NOTE: Feel free to add whey protein powder to this or add more bananas. I never measure when making these. Most of the time it's just leftover mix from smoothies I make. The Choco Loco recipe makes awesome Popsicle as well. We always have fresh homemade Popsicle on hand. 

These two give them a thumbs UP!

Check out this video from the 80s...Prepare to FLASHBACK:

And I'm here to say, YOU CAN BE A KID WITHOUT 'EM! :) Sorry Bill Cosby, I'll make my own without the chemicals, sugar, and artificial colorings!


  1. Angie, Coud you share some smoothie recipes, preferrably ones that could substitute for dessert...um, like with chocolate in them! HA I like the idea of the Chocolate Almond Milk, Right now I am drinking the almond vanilla once a day. It isn't bad, but I still prefer my lactose free fat free milk (I'm sure that's a big no no). But I was looking at all of the protein shakes in the store (ugh...disgustingly artificial) and the bars aren't much better. I bought a few Pure Protein brand bars. They are not something I am going to be able to do on a regular basis. So the organic whey powder is 19.99 for a small container,,is this the way to go?

  2. Yes, I will try to get some posted. You really can't go wrong with using a cup of all natural apple juice and a cup of frozen berries. Have you tried my Choco Loco in drinkable form? It's sooo good!
