Banana coconut and lime ice lollies
I wanted to get this ice lolly recipe in before the sun completely disappears!
I recently bought some ice lolly molds online, because I was spending far too much money on buying lollies from the supermarket! I felt I also needed to satisfy my current peanut butter obsession, so I looked for recipes and started testing. I tried multiple, and the only one that I found even remotely palatable was a banana and peanut butter one – but it still wasn’t great!
So, eventually, I gave up on peanut butter and thought I would trial and error some ice lollies with banana instead. Here’s the recipe I settled on! My bananas were overripe, so were probably a little sweeter than if they’d been less ripe, so do adjust the honey, based on your taste, or even use sweetened coconut milk. If you have a good peanut butter one, I’d love you to share it with me in the comments!
This recipe is free from dairy, wheat, and gluten. It’s vegetarian, and you could use a honey substitute to make it vegan. It’s also low fiber/low residue friendly.
