Homemade popsicles with banana/peanut butter/chocolate and peach/raspberry/apricot
Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Valio – taste which is offered completely lactose-free
It has been pure bliss to not only have had the most amazing summer weather this past week, but also to be housesitting in the countryside with a lovely garden and lots of nature! We have definitely made the most of it, haha which is evident by our awkward and quite random spots of sunburned skin! We always wear lots of sunscreen, but apparently we are not the best at distributing it evenly ;)
We have spent so much time relaxing in the garden and trying to get just a little bit of a tan on our otherwise ghostly bodies, but we are not the best at standing the heat, so we had to come up with different ways to cool off. First we bought a little inflatable baby pool and filled it with cold water, haha it must have looked a little odd to see three grown ass women squashed in there, but it got the job done! I also made these yummy popsicles for us to enjoy + to help cool us down and they were a big hit!
They are both made with a base of Valio lactose-free yoghurts, which is perfect as my little sister is lactose intolerant and for once I didn’t have to make separate options for her, it really makes everything easier. I used both their banana/vanilla yoghurt and their peach/raspberry/apricot yoghurt and then added in some extra goodies to make the perfect popsicles – you can find the recipes below, enjoy!
Banana/peanut butter/chocolate popsicles – yields 4 popsicles
3 deciliter (1 + 1/4 cup) Valio lactose-free banana/vanilla yoghurt
1 banana, ripe with brown dots
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/3 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
A little bit of dark chocolate (I used one with 70% cacao), peanut butter and chopped peanuts to decorate the popsicles with.
Simply mash the banana with a fork and mix it well with the other ingredients, pour it into the popsicle moulds, add the popsicle sticks and put it in the freezer overnight or at least for 5-6 hours. I decorated mine with a little melted dark chocolate and peanut butter + chopped peanuts, so yum!
Raspberry/peach/apricot popsicles – yields 4 popsicles
3 deciliter (1 + 1/4 cup) Valio lactose-free raspberry/peach/apricot yoghurt
1 peach, cut into small pieces
2 handfuls raspberries, cut into smaller pieces
Simply mix all the ingredients and pour it into the popsicle moulds, add the popsicle sticks and put it in the freezer overnight or at least for 5-6 hours, enjoy!
