Cooking with almond milk // Banana nutella fudge pops

When I was young we used to freeze all sorts of things – bananas, grapes, cookies, anything cold to keep the summer heat away.

Looking back I realize how pathetic that was – I long for Oregon’s gorgeous summers on these hot sticky east coast days – but really, that’s just the fun of the season. No matter where you are, summer just wouldn’t be summer without a few frozen goods. And these particular frozen goods include the benefits of almond milk, so I’m just going to go ahead and call this a totally healthy treat. A totally healthy treat that takes me right back to those frozen banana days (just without all that rock-hard action you sometimes get with frozen bananas).

And an extra bonus? If you make your own hazelnut spread these popsicles are totally gluten free, vegan, and just barely over 100 calories apiece.

I partnered with #SilkAlmondBlends and #CollectiveBias on this post partly because even though I can’t stay away from the custard stand, I probably should. In the past couple of years, I’ve developed a sensitivity to dairy that’s tolerable, but not exactly a bundle of fun, so I’ve been trying more and more to find treats that use an alternative to milk.

It’s actually pretty easy to sub almond milk into recipes, and most of the time you can’t even tell the difference. Plus, with #SilkAlmondBlends Protein + Fiber and Coconut Blend (which you can find super easily, I bought mine at Safeway, below) you get an extra boost of nutrition.

I’ve said lots of times, I really do like health food, but not when it tastes healthy, and you’d never guess that these fudge pops are as good for you as they are.

Banana Nutella Fudge Pops

3 large ripe bananas
1/2 cup hazelnut spread (such as Nutella, or make your own with almond milk!)
1/2 cup almond milk

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Transfer to popsicle molds, and place a stick in the middle of each mold. Freeze for at least 6 hours or until solid.

Once frozen, run outside of popsicle molds under hot water for a few seconds and test stick until popsicles come free.

(As you can see from the ends of my popsicles, I don’t quite have that part down. Any tips?)

    Banana-based “ice cream” is my absolute favorite, and this recipe sounds heavenly!

    I’m glad to hear cooking with almond milk is the same. I made two cakes past weekend and they didn’t turn out the best. 🙁

    Tap the mold on the counter a few times before putting it in the freezer. This should release any air bubbles in the bottom and give you a nice top.
