Huggin' Up the Big Monkey Man: Chocolate Banana Yogurt Pops

The weather is getting warmer and we've started making popsicles again!  We also happen to be super short on time today because we are getting ready for my big second b-day blowout tomorrow -- a funky sock monkey brunch.  So, we thought it would be appropriate to share a recent batch of chocolate banana yogurt pops we made.

Kane and I are OBSESSED with Trader Joe's cream yogurts -- vanilla and strawberry are our favorites, but of course the yogurt only comes in two combo packs: (1) vanilla and blueberry and (2) strawberry and banana.  We always eat all the vanilla first, then the strawberry, and then the blueberry.  But we both refuse to eat the banana yogurt.  And since we go through about 6, 6-packs of yogurt each week, we are always flush with banana yogurt that no one wants.  So we decided that we'd use it to make our first batch of yogurt popsicles for the season.

We blended up six banana yogurts with three whole bananas.  And then we took turns layering the banana yogurt mixture with chocolate sauce into our popsicle molds.  Mom tried to get us to put little bits of the chocolate sauce in at a time and then swirl it together.  Kane and I tried to squeeze as much chocolate in as we could.  They were delicious - we plan to make them again and add in some peanut butter, too.

omg our kitchen is a mess
