Gorilla Pops




These tasty treats are packed with protien to keep you going strong throughout the day. They're great as a quick breakfast or a post-workout snack.

Step 1: Ingredients


- 3/4 cup Nonfat, plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 creamy peanut butter
- 1 medium banana
- 2 tablespoons Ovaltine drink mix (could be substituted with any hot chocolate mix or sweetened coco powder )
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


- Sweetener, to taste (I used agave nectar)
- Chocolate Bar for grating

- Blender
- Rubber Spatula
- Popsicle mold (or paper cups and popsicle sticks)
- Grater or Microplane

This recipe makes 4, 4oz popsicles.

Step 2: Blend

Add yogurt, peanut butter, banana, vanilla extract, and Ovaltine to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thick to blend, a splash of milk goes a long way.

No blender? Pre-mash the banana and simply whisk the ingredients together for a slightly more textured result.

Step 3: Optional: More Chocolate!

For some added decendance, grate in a square of your favorite chocolate and fold in with spatual. I used a Microplane for a finer texture. 

Step 4: Fill Molds

Pour mixture evenly into popsicle molds and freeze for a minimum of four hours. 

Step 5: Enjoy!

For easy removal, run mold under warm water and you popsicle should come right out. All that's left to do is enjoy with a friend!

My sous chef congo approved of the finished result.

    maybe could add some fiber source if you want to eat these for breakfast.

    You want to end up with around 16oz of mix, so more yogurt or peanut butter could be subbed. Or you could try another mashed fruit. I think strawberries could be a fun variation, like a twist on peanut butter and jelly. If you up the yogurt I'd add in some more flavorings (chocolate or vanilla), as too much can taste bland.

    Oh man, old beanie babies! I had just about forgotten about those things! Great instructable; I look forward to making this for a cool summer treat!

    I'm sure soy or almond butter would be equally delicious :) Or you could leave out the pb and add some more banana.
