Banana Chocolate Protein Popsicles

**this post contains affiliate links** 

Hello blog friends! I've been neglecting you lately because we have been in full-on summertime mode around here and that means very little work getting done.  No apologies- it's been awesome!

But I've missed you.  How about I apologize with a yummy recipe?  Ok, here we go.

I have been on a mission lately to make popsicles.  You wouldn't believe how long it took me to find popsicle molds.  Are they out of fashion now or something?  I ended up ordering these ones from Amazon for these particular popsicles.  This recipe makes 3 popsicles because this was the testing stage.

Banana Chocolate Protein Popsicles
(recipe makes 3 pops)
3/4 cup Light Almond Milk 
1 Banana (really ripe)
3 TBSP Cool Whip 
(I use Lite Cool Whip- store brand)

Mix all ingredients until smooth.  I used my Nutri Ninja Pro to blend everything.

Katie doesn't really like bananas so it had to be really smooth.
If there was even one banana chunk she would have gagged.  It's very dramatic.

I loved these pops.  Katie & Mandy thought the banana flavor was a little strong.  When I make them again, I'll probably double all the ingredients except the banana and make all 6 pops.

If you like the banana/chocolate/peanut butter combo (and why wouldn't you?) I'd suggesting adding a scoop of PB2 as it gives the peanut butter flavor with less calories.

Next we're going to try the Vanilla Protein Powder with Almond Milk & Orange Juice! 
We're hoping it will taste creamsicle-ish.  

What's your favorite popsicle flavor?

Do you have a flavor combination suggestion for me?
