A Healthy Popsicle Recipe

One of the reasons I love these as a guilt free snack or dessert is the coconut milk base. Not only is it creamy and dairy free, but it offers some serious health benefits. While it’s true that coconut milk calories might be higher than dairy based products, full fat coconut milk is among the best sources of medium-chain fatty acids.

These fats are easy to digest, fill you up and prevent overeating and support neurological health. Not only that but with this recipe we have added chia seeds which are a fantastic source of protein, fiber, omega-3 and more.

  1. Make these popsicles vegan by substituting the honey for maple syrup.
  2. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before freezing it to allow the chia seeds to absorb the moisture.
