This last week summer has ramped up it’s heat and I need to cool down. What better way than with a nice banana pop made with whole foods? Each pop has about 2/3 of a banana so they are a good little kid snack as well. I have been using banana as the base for popsicles for a few weeks now and they seem to be going over well with everyone who tries them. The ingredients for this recipe also taste good in oatmeal just in case you were wondering.
If you were wondering, the moulds I have are from Ikea and I love them. Each popsicle has its own separate cover and there is a stand to go with. I find it a lot easier to take them out and refill them when they are individual.
Kinako Walnut Banana Pops
Makes 6 pops
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped finely
1-2 tablespoons kinako (soy bean powder)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mash the bananas in a large bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients until combined. Fill up your popsicle moulds and freeze until solid.
*Note: if this is your first time using kinako add it slowly as it has a strong flavor
