Will Knott sent me this recipe to help keep my cool in the hat weather we are experiencing at the moment. I have not yet had the opportunity to try it yet.
3-Ingredient Frozen Banana Pops
1 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk
2 large super ripe bananas
1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
Using a blender, mix all the ingredients until smooth.
Pour the liquid into Ice Pop Molds.
Place in freezer.
Wait three hours — that’s the hardest part!
Mind you, bananas and chocolate are not exactly my first thoughts when it comes to thirst quenching. This is really a smoothie frozen, you could also try your own favourite smoothie and freeze it in ice cube trays or Ice Pop Molds. I would love to know your great ideas to quench a thirst, apart from a crisp juicy apple, want to share them in the comments with me?
My own ideas are below!
Grannymar Thirst Quenchers.
Open freeze washed grapes, cubes of melon, watermelon or pineapple for a few hours and once frozen, bag them and store in the freezer. A few cubes at a time really quench the thirst and are great for young children or those who are ill.
Make sure the grapes are seedless if you are intending them for children.
Am intrigued by your advice: Can’t remember ‘seedless’ grapes being around when I was little. Even tangerines had seeds. There was, however, and you too may remember this dire warning: Do NOT swallow cherry stones. No one swallows cherry stones – voluntarily. Unfortunately it does happen. I am still here – to tell many a summer’s cherry tale.
Why not freeze seedless grapes when available? They are usually smaller and easier to manage for little mouths!
Do you think this would work with beer?
Al, I never tried it…. YET! If you manage to do so before me, let me know. I know wine freezes, so why not beer?
Pink grapefruit juice and seltzer, very cold, aaaaah….
Another new one for me to try if ever I go home to my own kitchen!
Chocolate and banana….my favorites and coconut too. Too much, I will die if i try one. Dianne
One ice cube size portion should not kill you Dianne.
