  • 3 cups sliced bananas (about 3 medium)
  • ⅓ cup smooth natural peanut butter

  • 1½ cups vegan dark chocolate chips (9 ounces), melted and cooled (see Tip)

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine bananas, peanut butter, water and salt in a large food processor. Pulse several times, then process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Divide among eight 3-ounce popsicle molds and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Working with one at a time, release the popsicles from the molds. Place the popsicles on the prepared baking sheet and return to the freezer to firm up, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Using a small spatula or offset spatula, spread chocolate onto the popsicles. Place the popsicles back on the baking sheet and return to the freezer until the chocolate has hardened, about 5 minutes.
  • Tip: To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. Or place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
  • To make ahead: Store popsicles in the freezer for up to 3 days.
  • Equipment: Eight 3-ounce popsicle molds
