Banana Almond Butter Pops

I have been on a huge almond butter kick ever since I tried Barney Butter, which I think is the best of all the brands that I've tried. Still, my husband has always loved almond butter and he thinks he knows what tastes best, so just to make sure, I did a blind taste test with seven people of different ages (Kenya included!) to see what they thought. It was so much fun! I hid the three different nut butters we were testing (raw almond butter from Trader Joes and Mara Natha no-stir almond butter were the other brands) and let each person try a spoon full of each brand and let them decide which they liked the best. Incredibly, it was unanimous, Barney Butter won each time -- even with my husband!

Besides the fact that this almond butter is smooth (not the kind where the oil and nut butter separate and you have to stir for ages to get it to a normal consistency). Even better, it's produced by a California mother of four, has less saturated fat then peanut butter and its high in magnesium and vitamin E which amongst other things helps to protect skin, circulation, brain and hormones against pollution.
These pops are a perfect energy treat for your little one because they have a fruit and protein. Try pulling them out at a kids summer party and I guarantee you'll hear oohs and ahhhs from the crowd.

    yum, I'm going to make these this weekend. I was wondering...have you ever tried adding chocolate to this recipe? I would love any suggestions on that...using a chocolate almond/rice milk or adding the chocolate in a different way? thanks!

    First of all, I would like to start off by saying I love love love your site <3 I just recently came across it when looking for healthy recipes for my 18 month old son, and now im hooked!! Its only been 4 days and I've already made 6 of your recipes and went and bought a few snacks you suggested from Trader Joes, including almond butter for this recipe... Unfortunately they didnt have the Barney Butter brand, any ideas of where can I find it?? Thank you so much for your time and your recipes :) Jo

    Can I substitute yogurt instead of the rice milk? If so, would it be the same amount? I love this website sooo much!
