Ingredients:

1 chocolate popsicle:
- 2 tablespoons of chocolate PB2
- 1/4 cup of vanilla coconut milk
- 1 small cookies & cream bar

1 peanut butter popsicle:
- 2 tablespoons of regular PB2
- 1/4 cup of vanilla coconut milk 
- 1/2 tablespoon of cacao nibs (sweetended or unsweetended)

Tools:
- knife & cutting board/plate
- popsicle molds or Dixie cups and popsicle sticks

Step 2: Mix It Up!

Shake the coconut milk well and use a spoon to stir in the PB2. After the liquid is smooth, add the chopped candy or cacao nibs

Step 3: Pour Into Molds

Pour the mixture into the molds. For extra fanciness, add a few cacao nibs or candy pieces to the base of the popsicle. Freeze for a minimum of 4 hours. These molds were tricky to remove the popsicles from, but perhaps paper Dixie cups would work better.

Step 4: Eat Up!

Remove from the molds with the help of a butter knife, if needed. Enjoy your not-so-hard work!

Made following the recipes above, here's the nutritional info:

Chocolate & Cookies & Cream bar :
133.5 Calories (if you use the whole small candy bar, I did not) / 5.5 grams of fat 5 / 5 grams of protein

Peanut butter & Cacao nibs: 
100 calories / 5.5 grams of fat / 5 grams of protein

Feel free to make the mixture richer by adding an extra tablespoon of PB2 and reducing the coconut milk. You can also mix and match with candy and cacao nibs or leave them out all together. 

Amazon.com has a great price on a 2 pack of PB2:

rvt1985 (author)BMR_111002013-08-05

I found PB2 at my local store HEB, as well as Whole Foods. It's easiest to buy online, but if that's not an option, maybe try looking in the healthy/organic section of your local store.
