Vegan Chocolate Popsicles With Roasted Almonds

June 27, 2012 32 Comments

One day I woke up and I knew I had to make vegan chocolate popsicles somehow. I was looking for recipes but didn’t find anything suitable for me. Then I had the idea that I hade made raw chocolate ganache cake before and what would happen if I used that recipe for the popsicles…

Then I tried…

I tested the recipe…

And you know what happened?

Miracle…

Not exactly! We had creamy, thick chocolate-y vegan popsicles to enjoy! Yum!

It’s easy to make and I dare to say it is the healthy version of chocolate popsicles.

Don’t miss this experience!

Vegan Chocolate Popsicles with Roasted Almonds

Ingredients (for 4 popsicles)

- 1 ripe avocado
- 50 g unsweetened cocoa powder
- 60-70 g coconut flower sugar or cane sugar
- 30 g coconut oil
- 100-150 ml almond milk (you can substitute with rice- or oat- or soymilk)
- 1 vanilla bean, split and seeded
- pinch of salt
- small handful of almond

Method

Roast the almonds in a dry non-stick pan for 5-6 minutes. Set aside to cool, then chop them roughly.

Place all other ingredients in a food processor then blend everything until smooth. If you find it too thick, add a little bit more almond milk. Put half of the roasted almonds into the popsicle molds, then pour the chocolate ganache cream over the almonds. Sprinkle the remaining almond over the top, insert sticks and freeze until solid (at least 2 hours).

Enjoy!

  4. What a clever way to use this mixture, Zita! :-) SO creamy and chocolatey yet healthy. I love it. :-)

  5. Mmm, these look delicious!

  6. Mouth is salivating Zizi. We have a ritual every week on Fridays when we eat out and on the way home, there is a gelato place that sells teh best chocolate popsicles covered in chocoate sauce and dipped in various nuts and coconuts. This looks JUST like it!

    I’ve been looking for ice cream without sugar for some time! Now I have to try these. Thanks for the recipe!

  10. These have to be the most perfect chocolate popsicles ever! I love the coating of roasted almonds and the shape of these… I’m featuring this post in today’s Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and I can’t wait to see what you create next…

    These look amazing! Could you substitute the avocado for a banana, I wonder?

  12. Yum, those look incredible! I haven’t jumped on the add-avocado-to-things bandwagon yet, but I may have to after seeing these!

  13. These looks absolutely scrumptious! :D

    I’ve posted a link to this recipe in my “Friday Favourites”, here: http://www.thechocolatebox.se/2012/07/fredagsfavoriter-v-30.html I hope that’s okay?

    The blog is in Swedish, but there is a translate button on the bottom right of the page. (The translation is not that good though, but hopefully you get the gist of it)

  14. Wow, an interesting recipe. Frozen avocado sounds great!

  15. Sounds delicious! I’ve made pudding with avocado before, but never popsicles…Can’t wait to try!

    Do you really use coconut flour or coconut “sugar”?

  17. Annette says:

    Hi – these sound amazing! I was wondering if you could substitute the coconut flower sugar for date syrup? Thanks so much!

    These look amazing! Do you know, roughly, what the measurements for the ingredients would be in measuring spoons/cups? I don’t even own a kitchen scale to measure by weight :/
