Creamy Banana, Chocolate & Peanut Butter Ice Blocks

28 Dec

iceblockAs the temperatures soar here in Australia we are constantly looking for ways to cool down.

What better way than a dip in the pool with a creamy, chocolate ice block in hand……..heavenly!!

These ice blocks are super creamy with their banana base, yummy hit of pure cacao & of course the addition of homemade peanut butter. Don’t taste the mixture before you start pouring into your ice block tray or you may find yourself guzzling the mix & those poor kidlets will miss out on their ice blocks πŸ™‚

If your making “Adults Only” ice blocks (you lucky things you!) add a shot or two of espresso coffee & your ice blocks will kick into overdrive – trust me!!

If your a sneaky mum (hands up ladies) you can add a handful of kale, a little bit of spinach or some wheat grass juice to your ice blocks Β to kick up the nutrition factor that little bit.

Here in Australia we have a brand of creamy milk ice blocks that we call Paddlepops our ice blocks taste just like them only better – if I do say so myself!

    You are Australian?!!! I thought you were American! Cheers for the wonderful (and most tasty) cold share. Not quite hot enough to crank up the freezer for these yet here in Tassie but no doubt I will be in need of laying on the tiles in the bathroom and the odd icey pole infusion from time to time. Cheers for the delicious share πŸ™‚

        It is just starting to heat up here in Tassie…funny enough, it is in direct proportion to us having to be outside all day painting the deck and railings ;). I love your recipes and really enjoy all of your posts and it is excellent to find out that you are an Aussie too so I should be at least able to find some of the ingredients in your recipes πŸ˜‰
