Peanut Butter & Jelly Paletas (Popsicles) #SundaySupper

It's still summer... It's still summer... It's still summer... I have been repeating these words to
myself all week because in my mind it's already fall. The leaves are falling off the tree outside my bedroom window. I'm already dreaming about making all sorts of delicious fall goodies. Just yesterday I cooked 3 kilos (like 6 pounds) of Camotes Enmielados (Candied Sweet Potatoes in Piloncillo Syrup), which made my house smell like one of those Bath & Body Works fall candles. And my kiddies all go back to school tomorrow.

But as excited as I am about fall, a part of me isn't ready to let go of summer just yet. It's probably because the kiddies' summer break was only 5 weeks long this year, which has to be the shortest. summer. break. EVER! Thankfully Hubby kindly reminded me that just because school starts tomorrow doesn't mean that summer season is officially over. My calendar clearly marks that we still have one whole month of summer to enjoy. So with that in mind and because peanut butter and jelly is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of back-to-school lunches, I made the kiddies these PB&J Paletas (popsicles) as a cool (and delicious) afterschool snack to help beat the heat of the dog days of summer.

One bite of these Peanut Butter & Jelly Paletas and I'm sure you'll agree that they taste like a pb&j sandwich on a stick. Only way cooler!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Popsicles -

Peanut Butter & Jelly Paletas

  • 2 cups plain or vanilla flavored yogurt
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (optional) 
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam or grape jelly

Mix the yogurt, peanut butter, and sugar (if using) with a wire whisk or an electric mixer on medium speed until completely combined. Fill 6 to 8 dixie cups or popsicle molds halfway with the peanut butter mixture. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of jam, then continue filling the popsicle molds with the remaining peanut butter mixture. Insert wooden popsicle sticks into center of each mold or plastic cup. Freeze for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Enjoy!

  1. Leaves falling off trees? Say it isn't so! I want summer to keep going strong for awhile. Mostly so I have an excuse to make these popsicles. They look like quite a treat!

  2. Oh man...there is nothing more classic for back to school than the combo of peanut butter and jelly! Love these frozen treats!

  3. So easy and so fun! I can't wait to make these with my boys!!

  4. This is such a fun recipe - and healthy too! My kids are older - high school and college age - but I know they'd love these. So would I!

  5. What a yummy, cool treat to eat at the end of a long school day! Perfect after school snack!

  6. These are incentive enough for kids to do well in school. I know I would be on my best behavior if these paletas were waiting for me after a long day of studying!

  7. These seem way easier to make than I ever thought! Oh my goodness

  8. I'm such a peanut butter addict, I can't wait to try these.

  9. Can't wait to try these Leslie. One thing we did to make the paletas a little easier to eat was to make some molds using 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe and cap. The white PVC that you can use for water connections, we cut them to about 5 inches, glued the end cap on them, made a holder for them in the freezer and when you want to thaw them out just run hot water on the outside for less than a minute and they release.
    Thanks for the recipe!
