Chocolate Ice Pops


These home-made ice pops are dairy-free and full of antioxidant-rich cocoa powder. It's important to eat plenty of foods high in antioxidants, especially during the summer to counteract the oxidizing effects of the sun. Some antioxidants, like the flavonols found in cocoa powder, have also been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke and cancer.

1 can (14 oz) coconut milk
5 tbsp cocoa powder (non-alkalinized)
2 tbsp honey
1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped, or 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Alternatively, use a whisk to mix them by hand.
  2. Pour the mixture into BPA-free popsicle molds and freeze for 2 hours or more.
