Elvis Popsicles (Peanut Butter, Banana, & Chocolate Popsicles)
Elvis’s favorite combo, peanut butter and banana, come together in popsicle form along with a sinful dip of chocolate in these Elvis Popsicles!
Since I was little, I’ve loved the peanut butter and chocolate combo. It’s umami and richness and sweet and salty all at the same time.
Back in the day, my sister and I invented these things called Zebra Droppings. It was literally a spoonful of peanut butter drizzled in melted chocolate and frozen (zebra because of the striped drizzle, duh). Clearly we were bakers (read: sugar lovers) from the start.
So any time I can marry peanut butter and chocolate, I am one happy girl.
Like me with pb & choc, Elvis was a huge fan of pb & banana. So I decided to give these babies a name fit for a king, if you will.
But unlike Elvis’s signature butter-slathered peanut butter and banana sandwich on white, these ice pops are made with non-fat greek yogurt. So when you’re noshing on these you’ll be getting some good protein and way fewer calories than a traditional Elvis-inspired eat.
Meanwhile, how PRETTY are they?! I just love them.
Oh! I almost forgot! I was written up on Boston.com on life as a full-time food blogger. If you want to read a little about blogging full-time and how I do it, you can read the article here!
And as a follow-up to that, a huge thank you to my readers. It’s because of you that I am able to pursue what I love. Your support and encouragement has kept me motivated to succeed, and I thank you for it. I love you all!
In a blender or food processor, combine peanut butter, yogurt, sugar, milk, banana, and vanilla extract, blending on high until smooth.
Pour into the popsicle mold, fit with sticks, and freeze for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
Once completely frozen, make your chocolate. Combine chocolate chips and oil over a double boiler on low heat until melted. Dip each popsicle into the chocolate, then sprinkle immediately with peanuts (the chocolate will freeze fast!).
