Coconut Milk Banana Popsicles

19 Aug

So the one thing I miss about this sugar detox thing is having popsicles at night. Joe and I love our popsicles, we had one (or two) every day in Mexico and we usually have them at home for after dinner too. This recipe comes right off the sugar detox recipes, so last night I had a crazy craving for one. Which also sucks because obviously I have to make them, then freeze them. So no instant gratification here. But my friends were laughing at me as I was calling around to rite-aid’s and safeway’s asking if they had popsicle molds at 9:30pm. And yes, Rite-aid did, plus they were 75% off so I got them for $.75. Score.

These definitely hit the spot!!! Popsicle crisis over!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water (or coconut water)
  • 4 tbls unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • I am sure you can add cocunut bits or some nuts and it would be even better…next round

Mix all ingredients together until they are smooth and creamy. Pour into popsicle molds and let sit overnight. To get them out, run warm water over the one you are trying to pop out, makes it much easier. YUM YUM.
