August 13, 2012 by Leanne Vogel October 5, 2017We’re finally getting to experience a bit of Summer! Perhaps we took a bit of Montreal’s warm weather home with us last week? Whatever the case may be, I’m loving being able to bask in the sun without fear of being rained on. Each Friday, I bake a couple of sweet treats for Kevin and I to snack on for the weekend. Kevin loves having dessert after dinner. If I prepare something before Friday night, he’s far less likely to drown himself in a bag of chocolate chips, double up on nutella, or eat an entire packet of chocolate soy pudding. Chocolate craving much? In the past, I’ve made things like doughnuts, cookies, and muffins, but seeing as the weather was so nice and there wasn’t a spot of cool weather in the forecast, I gravitated toward a treat of the no bake variety. I wanted to come up with a recipe that was vegan, kid-friendly, and had loads of different flavors so I could take rad pictures of them. Ya, I’m the girl that plans out the colors of her meal based on how they’ll photograph. Eh, there are worse things! I was drafting up a couple of ideas when one hit me – Dairy Queen Banana Splits. I’m pretty sure there were a couple of summers in my youth where all I ate were banana splits. Kids like banana splits, they’re colorful, I had all of the ingredients on hand… While it would have been a whole heck of a lot easier to have just made a huge bowl of banana soft serve, topped it off with cherries, strawberries, chocolate sauce, and been done with it, the thought of stuffing all of the banana split ingredients into a popsicle mold intrigued me. So naturally, I went for it. Each popsicle is under 100 calories each, filled with banana split flavor, and so much more healthier! We gobbled all 10 up within 2 days, the sign of a successful treat!
