Ever heard of ‘peanut butter powder?’ It’s incredible, and it’s one of the tasty tips that make these frozen banana pops from Chef Charlotte in H-E-B’s Cooking Connections so sensational. These are easy to make…a five minute fantasy in the kitchen. Your kiddos will also love them as an after-school snack. Heck, bring them in on the cooking process! We went with two different sauces from Green Valley Ranch Reserve, agave caramel and dark chocolate fudge, sprinkled with the incredible powdered peanut butter! I had never heard of PB2 before, but what a find. It contains 85% less calories than regular peanut butter and tastes just as good. One incredibly healthy skewer for back-to-school!

Frozen Banana Pops sound Yummy! Is dusting the PB2 the only option? Obviously you can’t spread this on bread to make a PBJ sandwich, how else can we utilize this great find? Maybe add some to yogurt or a smoothie?

PB2 comes in 2 flavors – Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Chocolate. Both are awesome!! 2 Tablespoons of PB2 can be combined with 1 Tablespoon of water for a spreadable PB2 to put on a sandwich, a banana, or anything else that you might put peanut butter on. Here is another fun recipe where I use PB2 to make Banana “Ice Cream”:

3 Bananas, peeled & sliced into about 1/2″ thick round circles
2 teaspoons of vanila extract
4 Tablespoons of PB2, Peanut Butter/Chocolate flavor
1/3 cup of dark chocolate chips

1. Process banana slices in a food processor until it starts to take on the creaminess of ice cream; You will likely have to scrape down the sides several times to help move it along; I find that bringing the banana slices out of the freezer just a couple minutes (not too long) before putting them in the food processor), I get the best consistency in a relatively short time.
2. Once bananas are creamy, added remaining ingredients and pulse in food processor until mixed well
3. You can eat it right away, if you desire a soft serve ice cream consistency, or you can keep it in the freezer to have a little more solid ice cream consistency.

It is very refreshing and healthy!! ENJOY!!!
