Chocolate Dipped Banana Peanut Butter Keto Pops

When I was a kid, peanut butter and bananas was one of my favorite snacks. Well, I don’t eat bananas these days but I still love the flavor combination and when you add chocolate you’ve got an incredibly delicious treat that won’t throw you off your keto game. These pops are fun and delicious especially if you find yourself some banana shaped popsicle molds (https://amzn.to/2Yaqh1P) to freeze them in. But if you don’t feel like taking the time to freeze them, the mixture also happens to make the most delicious banana-peanut butter smoothie you can imagine.

Equipment

  • popsicle molds or small paper cups with popsicle sticks

Ingredients

  • 1 cup nut milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup creamy unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 serving Banana Keto Chow
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sweetener optional
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 ounces chopped dark chocolate sugar free or at least 80% cocoa solids
  • 1/4 cup crushed roasted peanuts

Instructions

  • Combine milk, heavy cream, peanut butter, banana keto chow, and sweetener if you are using in a blender and blend until everything is fully combined and creamy.
  • Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight
  • When your popsicles are completely frozen, prepare the chocolate coating.
  • Melt the coconut oil in the top of a double boiler or in the microwave in a microwave safe container.
  • Add the chocolate and stir gently continuing to heat until all the chocolate is melted. Be careful not to stir it too much and keep the heat low or the chocolate may seize and get grainy and stiff.
  • Allow the mixture to cool down somewhat so it is still flowing but isn’t so hot that it will melt the popsicles.
  • Loosen the popsicles from their mold but do not unmold.

  • Working quickly, one popsicle at a time unmold a frozen popsicle dip it in the melted chocolate or pour the chocolate over with a spoon. Sprinkle the chocolate coating with crushed peanuts while it is still soft.
  • Place the popsicle handle down in a cup or bowl that will hold it upright while the chocolate sets.
  • Repeat with the rest of the popsicles until they are all coated.
  • Once the chocolate has set you can serve them immediately or wrap them and return them to the freezer to serve one at a time.
  • You can also make a shake version if you want to skip using molds.
