gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, paleo, vegan, nut-free, egg-free
Ingredients
  • 2¼ cups full fat organic coconut milk (the canned kind produces the best results)
  • 1 small/medium ripe avocado
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder (cocoa powder also works)
  • ¼ cup beet powder (or beet puree) (I used this brand)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup*
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla paste
  • 1 pinch sea salt
White Chocolate Drizzle
  • ¼ cup cacao/cocoa butter
  • 2 tablespoons full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey, maple syrup or other sweetener of your choice*
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt
Instructions
  1. Add all of the popsicle ingredients to a high speed blender. Puree until super smooth and creamy. Spoon the pudding into your face, I mean your popsicle mold.
  2. Tap/bang the molds on the countertop a handful of times once they are full, to try to get rid of all the air bubbles. Add the sticks. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until totally frozen, or preferably just overnight.
  3. While the popsicles set and have just a short time left, melt together the white chocolate drizzle ingredients. You can do so in a double boiler, in a small pan over a very low heat or in the microwave.
  4. Remove the popsicles from the mold, place on a sheet pan or plate lined with parchment paper, gently drizzle with the white chocolate mixture. (you can also make more and dip the tips of the popsicles into it). Set back into the freezer for just a few minutes to set the chocolate. Enjoy.
Notes
A note on sweeteners: Everyone's sweet tooth differs quite significantly based on what they typically eat. I go pretty light with the sweetener in this recipe, I use honey and just add what I need. You can add a little more or less if you'd like, if you'd rather use stevia or a sugar alcohol of some sort, that would work as well. If you'd like, try pitted dates, when blending the pudding. Just experiment and give it a taste before you spoon into the molds and adjust as necessary.
