Banana Split Popsicles made with sorbets, chocolate shell and crushed peanuts. A healthy dairy-free take on the classic ice cream shoppe dessert!

Banana Split Popsicles made with dairy free options and full of healthy mix-ins like flax, acai and chia seeds. We love making homemade popsicles and smoothies since getting basically the best blender of all time so when Bob’s Red Mill and Sambazon approached me to make a recipe for their #SuperfoodShowdown I was totally on board.

Keeping the little ones interests in mind I went with my oldest’s favorite dessert. The Banana Split. It is such a favorite around here I actually also once made a Banana Split Ice Cream burger and more recently made Banana Split Pancake Bites.

These Banana Split Popsicles are a total breeze to make using Sambazon’s Açaí Chocolate & Chocolate Chip Sorbet and Original Açaí Berry Sorbet for the berry and chocolate flavors. Instead of going with vanilla and bringing dairy into the mix I made a banana sorbet with Bob’s Red Mill Chia Seeds and Protein and Fiber Booster. It’s like going to your favorite smoothie shop but in popsicle form. A quick dip in some homemade chocolate shell and a sprinkling of freeze dried strawberries and peanuts was the final topper.

To recap we started with 6 Banana Split Popsicles and 3 taste testers. 15 minutes later I had 6 popsicle sticks left.

Tools used in the making of this Banana Split Popsicles recipe:
Popsicle Mold: Easy to use and wash, totally inexpensive.
Vitamix Blender: Making the banana sorbet is a breeze with this blender, we make a ton of soup, smoothies, sauces, dressings, etc in it.
Freeze Dried Strawberries: With toddlers in the house I definitely buy these in bulk because they instantly stop tantrums, but I love using them in recipes too (like my Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars)
Dairy Free Dark Chocolate: I normally use Guittard (which is not dairy free), but I wanted to honor the ingredients here and keep the dairy free theme going. I also have been known to snack on these chocolate bars (and Chuao’s Potato Chip Chocolate Bar which is so good I buy them in bulk).
