These no sugar added peanut butter banana popsicles are a great treat for kids and a nice way to cool off during the hot summer days - No added sweeteners with a good amount of protein from yogurt and peanut butter.
How to make sugar-free banana peanut butter popsicles
These delicious and healthy treats rely on the natural sweetness of very ripe bananas, eliminating the need for any added sweeteners.
Full-fat yogurt and peanut butter both add creaminess and protein, which helps balance out the natural sugar from the banana.
I find that I tolerate sugar in any form much better when it comes with a side of protein and/or fat!
Can these popsicles be made dairy-free?
Though I like to add in regular, full-fat dairy yogurt, any dairy-free yogurt will suffice.
Are there any substitutions for the peanut butter?
Any nut or seed butter you enjoy will work here!
I was going for a Butterfinger Blizzard kind of taste with these, hence the banana peanut butter combo, but almond butter or Sunbutter would be great alternatives!
I hope you try this easy recipe this summer!
No Sugar Added Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles
- ½ cup full-fat plain yogurt or milk of your choice
- 2 large very ripe bananas
- ¼ cup peanut butter (I use salted and don't mind the flavor, but if you're sensitive to salt, use an unsalted peanut butter.)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- stevia to taste, optional
- Blend all the ingredients until smooth and creamy, adding stevia to taste if you desire extra sweetness.
- Pour into popsicle molds.
- Freeze until solid, at least four hours.
I get six good-sized popsicles from this recipe, but that will vary depending on the popsicle mold you use. I use this popsicle mold.
