Summer is in full swing here in the South. Our dashboard in the car said it was 101 degrees today. Yikes! Time to get the freezer stocked with cool treats. I was wanting something like a fudgesicle a couple of days ago and came up with this Peanut Butter Banana Fudge Pop to satisfy my craving.
Because I hate turning on the oven and heating up my house any more than I have to during the summer, I can see a lot of popsicles in our future. I saw these on Pinterest recently and knew I needed to try them. I had to make some substitutions, but ended up with these delicious fudge pops that are only 66 calories each.

Peanut Butter Banana Fudge Pops (makes 5-6 popsicles)
(adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie's recipe)
2 small bananas
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 cup half and half
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 packet or more of Stevia sweetener
dash of salt
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popscicle molds. Allow to freeze completely.
These pops are kid-approved and totally satisfy any sweet craving I might have in the afternoon too. They won't set me back too many calories either. I love that in a snack!
