Chocolate Coconut Popsicles

So as promised today – the next healthy dessert recipe! Chocolate coconut popsicles to the rescue on this hot fall day!

Err…something is a little wrong with that sentence? Unless you live in Texas. Then the pumpkin-fall-chili-lets-wear-boots season hasn’t quite arrived yet, unfortunately. Kinda makes me wanna cry, actually…

But then I just eat some chocolate and call it a day. A hot, summeryfall day.

Chocolate Coconut Popsicles

This was the first time I had used (unsweetened) coconut milk for anything food related ever. Or non-food related, really. If you are also a first timer – make sure you shake up the can REALLY well before you open it. It’s gonna come out a little bit chunky. This will help you avoid mixing it up and making a little bit of a mess!

I contemplated using a full cup of coconut milk in this recipe, which would likely give the popsicles a creamier consistency – more like fudgesicles. Instead, I lightened them up a bit by using 1/2 cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of almond milk, which I think made them a little more like a popsicle.

Still creamy, but slightly more popsicle-esque.

And still a heavy coconut flavor! This recipe is definitely for coconut lovers!

You only kinda need a popsicle mold for this recipe. If you don’t have one, you can do one of two things:

1. Buy a popsicle mold.
I bought this 8 Cell Frozen Ice Cream Pop Mold Popsicle Maker, and I like it.

2. You can pour the mixture into little solo cups with wooden sticks in them, as shown in this recipe!
I think this is kind of genius, honestly.

I found it easiest to pour the mixture from the food processor into a Pyrex measuring cup, to then pour into the molds. These molds help exactly 2 cups of mixture, and popped out easily after running them under hot water for just a few seconds on each side.

These are a great little 50 calorie treat (that is low in sugar!) to help curb your after dinner sweets cravings!
