Linda DeVoe submitted a recipe for peanut butter banana pops for one of our first dairy-free recipe contests. Her three-ingredient dessert was a little too heavy on the peanut butter for our tasters – I know, is that possible? So Sarah modified the recipe to suit various nutty palates.
Peanut Butter Banana Pops for Vanilla and Chocolate Lovers
Sarah starts with just one tablespoon of peanut butter, which suits younger taste buds, and adds more, to taste, for peanut butter lovers. She also opts to use chocolate dairy-free milk beverage, for a boost of sweetness and complementary flavor. But Sarah says vanilla is delicious too.
Either way, this recipe results in simple, healthy, everyday kind of desserts. And we love that it also helps to use up leftover bananas and dairy-free milk beverage!
