Live-in-the-Now Banana and Almond Ice Pops
In general, I’m not a “dessert-first” kind of woman. I actually relish the anticipation and build up to the evening meal’s finale. However, I’ve been enjoying this banana ice pop at every chance I get. On a hot summer day, it’s a delicious (and healthy) way to feed that afternoon craving. And as a smoothie, it makes a tasty breakfast. Plus, if you’re like me and always seem to have a pile of ripe bananas in your freezer, this is a great way to use them.
Makes 8 ice pops
2 frozen bananas
¼ cup raw almonds
¾ teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon honey (omit if your bananas are really ripe)
1 ½ cups almond milk, original flavour
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into an ice pop mould and freeze until firm. Or, enjoy as a smoothie.
