Servings
6 pops

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. honey, or more, to taste 
  • 20 pitted dates 
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 8 Tbs. baking cocoa powder (Dutch process)
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla
  • 6 Tbs. chia seed
  • 3 Tbs. melted coconut cream or heavy cream 
  • Pinch salt 

Preparation

  1. Place all ingredients in high-speed blender. Process until smooth (about 4 minutes) and thick as chocolate pudding. 
  2. Pour into popsicle molds, leaving about a quarter inch at the top of each. Freeze 6 hours, or overnight.
  3. To unmold, fill a pan with warm (not hot) water. Briefly dip molds in water for 20 seconds until the popsicles loosen. You can run them under warm water, but this results in uneven defrosting.
