Two quick and easy summer treat recipes that will help you get in a dose of dairy and fun. Chocolate Banana Pudding Recipe | Fruit  Whip Pops

Chocolate Banana Pudding

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

The secret ingredient in this chocolate pudding recipe is bananas! SO good! A great way to get in a serving of dairy and fruit.

Peel the bananas and cut into rounds. Freeze for about 3 hours.

In a bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, almond milk, and vanilla extract. Place mixture in food processor with the frozen banana rounds and salt, and blend well. I found I had to stop frequently to stir it up. As you go, the bananas will start to soften and blend, you kind of have to work at it until it smooths.

Every chocolate lover will enjoy this chocolate banana pudding. Add raspberries for an extra special touch. This is an easy recipe to mix up this summer.
