The all American comfort food of peanut butter and jelly. But instead of it being in the form of a sandwich, I turned it into a frozen summer-time treat.
The first time I made these sweet little Dixie Pops, I forgot to add the popsicle sticks. lol That is what happens when a person has to many recipes going at once and gets distracted. (raises hand)
They turned into sweet little desserts that you can eat in a bowl. One has to be flexible in this business. haha In a bowl, on a stick, on a flip-flop, it’s all good! I hope you enjoy this frozen treat. Many blessings, amie sue
In the blender combine the nogurt, peanut butter, almond milk cream, stevia and salt. Blend until mixed well. Taste, add more stevia or desired sweetener if needed.

Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds. I used 3 oz plastic Dixie cups. Alternate the batters. The first layer being strawberry. These Dixie cups are perfect for portion control and they pop right out after being warmed in hand for about 10 seconds. Tap each cup on the counter top to work out any air bubbles.
Slide small popsicle sticks in the center, sprinkle the chopped peanuts on the top, cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer overnight or until frozen.

Freeze in popsicle molds or 3 oz Dixie cups with a popsicle stick inserted. Always use plastic Dixie cups, the paper ones stick and you have to tear them off of the ice cream.
Store in the very back of the freezer, as far away from the door as possible. Every time you open your freezer door you let in warm air. Keeping these treats way in the back and storing it beneath other frozen-sold items will help protect it from those steamy incursions.
Ice cream is full of fat, and even when frozen, fat has a way of soaking up flavors from the air around it—including those in your freezer. To keep your frozen treat from taking on the odors, use a container with a tight-fitting lid.
I also used part of the batter to make these fun shaped frozen treats. I have a link up above.
