PB & J Pops

Share

I was scouring some of my cookbooks recently trying to find a recipe for a peanut butter and jelly popsicle. Oh yeah, I said it: a PB & J pop. Nothing. Ziltch. How was that possible? OK, maybe there is a recipe for one out there, but I certainly couldn't find it or get the thought of making them out of my head.

Coincidentally, cut to me discovering a box of 100 Dixie cups in the bathroom cabinet later that day. "When did I buy these," I asked myself. The box must have been in there for over a year, but not a single cup had been used. Ah ha! Why not make my PB & J popsicles in them!

I headed back to the kitchen and played around until I came up with what seemed like the perfect mixture and then began the layering and freezing process.

An hour later, Kenya opened the freezer and accidentally dumped the tray of pops all over, my little experiment pouring all over (if you've never tried cleaning peanut butter out of a freezer, trust me, it's not a ton of fun). After we made a new batch and let them freeze completely (check out the image at the end of this post) there were two kids (and a mom) who happily dug into these PB & J pops, loving every last bite. I don't know if I am the first person who has ever made a popsicle out of peanut butter and jelly, but I certainly hope I'm not the last!

    I thought these were either going to be really good or really gross, and was very happy that they fell into the really good category! Of all the ice pop varieties we’ve made, the 5-yr old ate the most of this one (almost all of a 2 oz pop – he loves the concept of popsicles but just isn’t all that into the reality…), that says a lot for how yummy these are! Plus they don’t freeze as hard and slippery (texture-wise) as other recipes.

    Could you remove the vegan tag as it contains animal products, namely honey and milk. Thank you!

      Actually, they DO make vegan honey as well as other similar sweeteners. Also could use almond or soy milk, etc.

    Sadly, these aren’t vegan as they contain honey. Honey isn’t vegan. :-(

      Yes, they do pop out easily. My kids loved them and I did too! YUMMM<3

      I made them in my molds and they turned out great, and a little smaller for my little one’s mouth.

    Almond butter freezes well. You would be able to substitute it with no problem!

    Yummy! But like Diane I can’t use peanut butter anymore. :( my 17 month old is allergic. I think I’ll try this with sunflower seed butter. I’m sure it’ll come. Well, I hope it does.

    Sounds good, i think I will try it with chopped bananas mixed in instead of the jelly. Thanks for the recipe!

    Very interesting! What do you think about substituting sunflower butter for the peanut butter and rice milk for the dairy milk? Our children have food allergies.

      I was thinking the same thing…glad to hear that someone else has done it. I might have experimented anyway. I love Sunbutter so much. I’ll substitute it in ANY peanut butter recipe.

      Sunflower butter and rice milk would be amazing in these. I made them with vanilla rice milk once and they were delicious!

    Those look delicious! I would maybe make them with just peanut butter or with strawberry jelly.

    I made something similar to these with yogurt (no milk). My 2 year old gobbled them up. Yummy!
