You’ll never guess what wonderfully nutritious ingredient these vegan chocolate ice pops are hiding…They are creamy and sweet, yet nut-free and reasonably low in fat, so what magic ingredient would do that? Beans! The chocolate and date flavors nicely mask any remaining beany taste from the black beans, so you’re left with a wonderful, satisfying chocolate popsicle. Even kids will love these!
Chocolate Ice Pops [Vegan]
- 1 can black beans , drained and rinsed
- 1 can coconut milk
- 2/3 cup medjool dates
- 1/3 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Add everything to your high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
- Spoon into your popsicle mould, add popsicle sticks/holders and freeze for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).
Make sure your beans are prepared with minimal salt, or rinse them thoroughly before use. A small amount of salt won’t hurt, but too much will affect the whole balance of this recipe.
