Fruit frozen yogurt pops

This recipe tastes wonderful in cold or warm weather. I’ve worked with people who get excited about having a low-fat, artificially-sweetened or sugar-laden frozen treat for a night-time snack. This tasty ice pop alternative, containing protein and healthy fat (to offset the natural fruit sugar) will provide satiety and satisfy your sweet tooth!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup plain, unsweetened soy probiotic yogurt (e.g., Wildwood Organics™)
  • 4 Tbsp unsweetened, dairy-free cocoa powder or carob powder ⅔ cup unsweetened, dairy-free milk (e.g., almond, brown rice or hemp milk)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut cream (not oil; optional) (Adds to the smooth consistency.)
  • 1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla flavoring 1 banana 3 pitted dates, optional Liquid stevia to suit your taste

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend well.
  2. Add liquid stevia to your taste.
