Roasted Banana Popsicles with Almond Butter Swirl (vegan and paleo)

roasted banana popsicles #vegan #paleo

The perfect cold treat for those hot summer days! Roasted banana and coconut milk make the base with a tasty almond butter swirl.



banana base:

3 medium bananas

2 tsp coconut oil

2 tsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 can full fat coconut milk(400mL)

12 tbsp maple syrup

almond butter swirl:

1/3 cup almond butter

2 tbsp maple syrup

For the chocolate drizzle:

1/3 cup dairy free chocolate chips

1 tsp coconut oil


Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Slice the bananas in rounds and toss with the coconut oil, 2 tsp of maple syrup and cinnamon.  Make a tinfoil square and place the bananas in the centre. Fold the edges of the tinfoil up to make a package and put in the oven for 15 minutes.

While the bananas are roasting make the almond butter swirl.  In a small bowl mix together the almond butter with 2 tbsp maple syrup (unless your almond butter already has sweetener in it). Set aside.

Once the bananas have roasted, place them in a blender or food processor with the 400 mL can of coconut milk, pinch of salt and 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup depending on personal preference.

Fill the popsicle mold(I use this one and I love it) 3/4 of the way with the coconut/banana mixture. Scoop the almond butter evenly in all ten popsicles.  Using a knife, push the almond butter in and mix it up a bit with the other ingredients to get a swirl.  Pour the rest of the coconut/banana mixture on top.

Place in the freezer for minimum 6 hours.

When the popsicles are frozen run them under warm water for a minute or two to loosen them up.

Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil using a double broiler.  Drizzle the chocolate on the popsicles or dip them in.



*This recipe fits into this mold perfectly that I got from amazon but I also found a slightly cheaper silicone one that looks similar here.

**I imagine this recipe would taste great with any nut butter of choice. Experiment and let me know how it turns out!
