SCD Recipe: Layered Banana Peanut Butter Pops

Bananas, peanut butter, and yogurt have been my go-to snack combo since I started the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

These pops are one of my favorite summer-time snacks. The peanut butter layer has a fudgesicle-like texture. I won’t blame you if you want to make the entire popsicle the peanut butter layer!

With this I threw everything into a blender – we’re not bakind so you’re measurements don’t have to be exact. The important part is to make sure the peanut butter layer is very thick – so you won’t want to use much more than a 1/2 cup of the banana and yogurt blend to mix with the peanut butter.

My popsicle holders are pretty small. They only hold about a half cup. The amount of pops you can make will vary depending on how much liquid you can fit in your holder.
