Banana Fudge Popsicles

    After a long, cool spring here in the Pacific Northwest, we welcomed the first day of summer, and with it, some real live sunshine. (Did you hear us cheering?) Summer of course, means lots of yummy frozen treats. I was inspired by this Chocolate Banana Freezer Pie from The Nourishing Gourmet. I couldn't be bothered to make a crust, so adapted the filling to make enough to fit my popsicle mold. I've made these three or four times recently and everyone loves them. They're super easy, vegan, sugar free, fruit sweetened, chocolatey, creamy, and delicious.

Banana Fudge Popsicles

6 Ripe Bananas
1 C Coconut Milk (substitute Cream Cheese or Yogurt)
1/2 C Cocoa Powder
1 t Vanilla

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze.

Here are a couple other frozen treats we enjoy:
Orange "Creamsicles"

Pearl says "Mmmmmmm! I like these!"
What are your favorite summertime treats?
Happy Summer!
