You might be thinking “why are these SUPER pops?” Well, because they contain a delicious SUPERFOOD—Avocados!
The summer has been rough here. When we get home from camp or playing outside, the first thing we want to do is cool off—fast! So I immediately search the freezer for delicious Popsicles.
I don’t want to load my daughter up with junk or too much sugar. I’d rather have something with a bit of a “healthy kick,” if you will, while not sacrificing the yummy flavor.
I also don’t want a recipe that’s overly complicated or has a list of ingredients I don’t even have stocked in my house! They should be simple (like MOMables menus) and allergy-friendly. That’s why I came up with these delicious Chocolate Super Pops!
They taste sweet and chocolatey, but hidden inside are healthy fats and tons of antioxidants. The delicious fruit used is a great source of vitamins, potassium, folic acid, and amino acids.
We keep ours dairy-free by using nondairy rice milk. Depending on the brands you buy for the cocoa powder, they can be made gluten- and top-8 allergen-free!
The brand of Popsicle molds you have will determine how many each batch yields. Ours yielded four.
