Peanut Butter Banana Fudge Pop

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. (according to My Fitness Pal)

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! What's your favorite popsicle flavor? Are you a fudgesicle person or do your like the fruity popsicles?
I'm linking up at some of these great parties and

  5. Oh heavens I can hardly wait to make these. They look so good and aren't too high in calories for me, thank heavens.
    Since our budget is nil and we have too many 5 week months (between SS payday we like to have easy desserts and it will be even better if I can make them. We love fudge sicles, oh yummmmm. When we have money we buy one box of fudge sicles and one box of the ice cream covered with chocolate at City Mkt., oh boy am I making myself drool. Can't make those but the fudge sicles will be a big favorite for us since I'll be able to make those. So glad I clicked on your post on Under the table and dreaming Sunday showcase. Happy Summer

  13. this looks refreshing! banana and chocolate remind me of getting ice cream from the beach guy, but i'd imagine it's even greater with peanut butter, too!

  14. This has to be a kid favorite that is if I don't eat them first as I'm crazy about peanut butter and banana. This will be fun to make with children.

  19. Another recipe to pin. I've been making smoothies with these ingredients, I'm sure fudgesicles would be great too. Thanks for sharing these at A Humble Bumble :)

  20. These look awesome and are made with stevia and not sugar! Yay! However... I have a big bottle of stevia, not the little individual packs... Can you please measure out one of those little packs and give us a measurement instead so I can get it right? Stevia is so strong, I don't want to use too much. (I actually hate the taste of it, but maybe it will be ok with these other ingredients!) Thanks!
