Healthy Chocolate Ice Pop Recipe

The best thing about these easy to make ice pops is that when you and your kids are enjoying them, you will think you are eating a sinful treat when really, they contain protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants. The sweeteners are the banana and the maple syrup, so they contain no refined sugars. Enjoy!

Summer weather is coming and that means popsicle season, but not just any popsicles, homemade, delicious, healthy popsicles. Both Justin and Reece love popsicles, I could take them or leave them. I often make them up for the two of them to enjoy as they play in the yard on a hot summer afternoon.
Here is 1 of their favourites:

Chocolate Ice Pops

1 avocado*, peeled and pit removed 1 banana 6 tbsp coconut milk 3 tbsp maple syrup 2 tbsp organic cocoa powder 1 tbsp almond butter

* Check out this great tip to ensure you are buying a good avocado.

1.  In a food processor, blend the avocado and banana until smooth. Add coconut milk, maple syrup, cocoa powder and almond butter, blend until well mixed. You can taste test now to see if you would like to increase the sweetness with a little more maple syrup. You may also wish to add a little more coconut milk if it seems a little thick.

2.  Once you have perfected it to pass your taste bud test, fill your ice pop molds and freeze for a couple of hours.
