Ingredients

Ingredients:

For the popsicles:

  • 1 13.5 fl oz can of coconut milk
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder like Vega All in One
  • 2 tsp stevia
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

For the coating:

  • 1 cup stevia sweetened chocolate chips such as Lily’s
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Ground Chipotle Peppers

Instructions

Instructions:

  1. In a high speed blender or food processor, add in the coconut milk, protein powder, stevia, cacao and cinnamon. Blend till well combined and no lumps remain.
  2. Pour into your popsicle molds, insert the popsicle stick and freeze till hard, approximately 6 hours depending on the size of your popsicles
  3. Once the popsicles are frozen, remove them from the freezer and set on the kitchen counter to start the thaw.
  4. In the meantime, place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl or cup. Heat in 30 second increments and stir the mixture vigorously. If there are a few clumps of chocolate left, just heat for a few more seconds, then stir again.
  5. Lay a piece of parchment paper on your work surface or tray.
  6. Unmold the popsicles from the popsicle mold and dip it into the melted chocolate, turning the popsicle around in the chocolate so that all sides are coated. Allow any excess to drip off. Lay the popsicles down on the parchment paper. Sprinkle over more cinnamon and chipotle pepper on top of the wet chocolate coating.
  7. Allow the chocolate to harden while you finish dipping the other popsicles in chocolate and sprinkling spices on top.
  8. Once the popsicles are all dipped and the chocolate coating is mostly hardened, place them in a freezer proof container and store in the freezer till you’re ready to eat!

Recipe Notes

To unmold the popsicles, you can leave the popsicles at room temperature for about 10 minutes, or you can place the popsicle mold in warm water for a minute or two. Then try to unmold the popsicles. Repeat as necessary until the popsicles are out of the mold.
