Paleo Pops

So last night I was drunk enjoying some wine and wanting ice cream in my face a little something sweet, but healthy. So I threw together some ingredients I like and was pleased with the results!

Ingredients1 can (13-15 ounces) organic classic/whole coconut milk
1/2 cup raw organic macadamia nuts
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons organic maple syrup (B grade has more minerals)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

  1. Put all ingredients in a quart sized mason jar and blend with an immersion blender until mixed together like a smoothie. I suppose you could put it in a regular blender but you should know my preference by now. 🙂
  2. Pour the mixture into the molds*
  3. Freeze for a few hours
  4. Eat

* Regarding your molds, I happen to have some ice pop molds. But you can use ice cube trays, small juice cups, nonstick muffin pans or individual silicone cupcake cups. And for the sticks you can get old fashioned wooden ones at kitchen and craft stores, or you can use cinnamon sticks, straws or bamboo skewers. Just put the sticks in when the pops are partially frozen so they will stay in place. A fun book called Ice Pops by Shelly Kaldunski has many inspiring recipes and pictures.
