Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Pops

JUST A FEW TIPS:

 These smoothie pops take a little bit of planning ahead to make sure that they have enough time to freeze before your are planning on enjoying them. I like to make the smoothie pops the night before and leave them in the freezer overnight, which gives them plenty of time to freeze and be ready to enjoy for breakfast!

I used  3 0z. paper cups to make these smoothies but you can use any fun popsicle molds that you have. I also have a TON of paper straws, so I decided to use paper straws as the “sticks” for these smoothie pops, you can also use regular wooden popsicle sticks.

If you do use paper straws, make sure that you use two paper straws for each popsicle, this makes them sturdy.

 I highly recommend that you use overly ripe bananas because they have just enough sweetness to really bring out the delicious banana flavor in these smoothie pops. If you use a ugly, brown bananas then these smoothie pops won’t taste as good and no one likes brown bananas.
