Oh, the nostalgia of Popsicles and Ice Cream Sandwiches on hot summer days as a kid! Now that you’re older, you gotta think about things like sugar, preservatives and inflammatory ingredients. Well, you do if you want to feel your best, and who doesn’t want that?! That’s why we create delicious recipes that bring comfort to your life. We ditch the sugar, flour, dairy and other things that lead to chronic disease, and we offer substitutions. Our Peanut Butter Chocolate Freeze Pops Recipe is reminiscent of childhood frozen treats, but without any guilt. Since we limit (or omit) dairy, we make these using full-fat organic coconut milk. Don’t worry- coconut milk doesn’t taste like you’re eating the inside of a coconut. The consistency is thick, with a super mild flavor.
We use a little peanut butter in this Peanut Butter Chocolate Freeze Pops Recipe to up the creaminess factor. But, feel free to sub in another nut butter! Cashew or almond butter would be great! Simply omit the powdered peanut butter if you have an allergy. Or, add a scoop of collagen peptides! The powdered peanut butter adds a bit of softness to the pop. (We like the ability to bite right in, rather than chip a tooth on a hard-icy surface.
We like using cacao powder (not cocoa) in our recipes. Just a little dash in everyday life adds antioxidants you need to fight free radicals. Unlike fruit, cacao powder contains few carbs, so it’s a good one to rotate in. Add to other things too! Add to shakes, coffee, or make some of our Brownie Cookies (which contain 3/4 cup of cacao!) or gummies.
Let us know what you think of our Peanut Butter Chocolate Freeze Pops! Never underestimate the power of a frozen treat to satisfy you. Because it’s frozen, you get to savor it!
