With the heat (and humidity) of summer in full effect, I am craving nothing but cooling foods.  Number one on the list?  Ice cream.  I would love to eat ice cream everyday but my body rejects that idea.  Instead, I’m enjoying smoothies and popsicles as a way to keep cool.

I really don’t think there is any better flavor than chocolate and peanut butter.  It must be genetic because every one in my family goes ga-ga for that combo. Toss in a banana and it makes it even better. One of my all time favorite smoothies is a simple mix of banana, peanut butter, almond milk, and cocoa powder.

That was in the inspiration for these delicious and easy to make Fudge Banana Pops.

To add a nutritional boost, I used Barlean’s Chocolate Silk Greens Powder. It’s packed with superfood antioxidants from more than a dozen fruits and veggies. It’s non-GMO, gluten free, soy free, dairy free and vegan. What it’s not free of is taste. A wonderfully chocolatey taste, I might add. It’s a great way to sneak in extra greens into your diet.  And when your greens taste like chocolate, I think everyone can agree that it’s easy to eat green.

Pops can be made with anything but I’ve fallen in love with this Zoku Classic Pop Molds.  I love the sleek design of it and that it’s mess free with the built in drip guards.

I may have to buy another set because the Fish Pop Molds are too cute!

What’s your favorite flavor combo?
