Figure Friendly Ice Pops! Oh Yes, All Healthy! Eat up!

on January 8, 2015

Ice pops are one of the easiest craving busters to have on hand.  They’re sweet, take a while to eat allowing for the craving to pass and are delicious!  Luna (almost 3years) and I normally make our version of “chocolate” ice pops. This time we added a little more yumminess to it along with more vitamins and healthy fats!

Part One: Chocolate ice pops  (makes 12 mini ice pops)

1 organic ripe banana

1/2 organic ripe avocado

1 tablespoon of organic raw cacao powder (I use Navitas) **You can add more or less depending on your taste preference for chocolate

Food process or mash very well with a fork, until smooth

Place in ice pop molds (I use Zuko BPA free mini pop molds) and freeze

 

Part Two: Strawberry-coconut yogurt

Place 1 can of coconut full fat milk overnight in the fridge to condense

Soak 2 Medjool dates overnight as well

Scoop out condensed milk and pour remainder of can on blender

Add pitted dates

Add 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

Add 1 probiotic capsule

Add 1 1/2 cups of strawberries

Blend and pour into a container and let sit uncovered in fridge overnight

 

Part Three:

Remove chocolate ice pops from mold 

Fill a 1/4 of the mold with strawberry-coconut yogurt 

Place the chocolate ice pops back into mold and freeze

If you have excess yogurt leftover, you can make strawberry-coconut ice pops too or just eat as is!

 

**Don’t let the steps overwhelm you.  It’s really very easy and so worth it!
