Ingredients

  • 5 Bananas, ripe, peeled, cut into rounds, and frozen overnight
  • ½ cup Almond milk, vanilla, unsweetened
  • cup Chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Freeze peeled and cut bananas overnight in a Ziploc bag.
  • The following day place the bananas and almond milk in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  • If the mixture is too thick you can add some more almond milk. 
  • You must work quickly otherwise your bananas will start to turn brown.
  • Pour the banana-almond milk mixture into a cold bowl. 
  • Add half of the chopped pecans and mix well with a spatula. 
  • Scoop the banana mixture into your popsicle molds and top with a generous sprinkle of chopped pecans.
  • Insert popsicle sticks and freeze overnight. 

Notes

Make sure you freeze the bananas before hand, otherwise your paletas will turn a sad grayish-brown color. Feel free to add a bit more almond milk if your blender is having trouble processing the bananas. You can also roast the pecans in the oven for a more intense pecan flavor.
