This can also be a really fun recipe for kids. Kids enjoy helping out when you are making food in the kitchen, especially when that food involves sweet snacks. This is a perfect opportunity for sharing your love of cooking with them, as well as your love for making healthy desserts as well. First off, show them how to properly wash their hands before they start baking and teach them some other basic food safety rules, keeping it fun so they’ll stay interested. Ask them to help add the bananas and almond milk to the blender and mix together the chocolate drizzle. They’ll love seeing how the popsicles freeze in the freezer and for a real treat – let them pour the drizzle over them when they’re done. This is an experience they’ll never forget and perhaps one day they will share it with their kids as well.
