Mint Chocolate Chip Popsicles

Food & Drink

One of my favourite flavour combinations of all time is chocolate and mint. So naturally when I found a recipe for making these choc-mint popsicles I just had to give it a try. I also love that this recipe using fresh mint so I could use of some of my garden herbs! Although this was ultimately a self proclaimed “Pinterest fail” (my pops got trapped in my dollar store moulds so I had to scoop them out) I was very happy with the taste and will definitely try again once I invest in some better ice pop making gear.

 

What you need:

  • 1 x 400 ml can coconut milk
  • 1 x large handful fresh mint
  • Mini or chopped Chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • popsicle moulds (I also made a few using a silicone ice cube tray)

Instructions:

Step 1 – Heat coconut milk, salt and sugar in saucepan until you start to see some steam.

Step 2 – Remove mixture from heat and mix in fresh mint. Let stand for 30-60 minutes.

Step 3 – Strain mixture over bowl or measuring cup to remove mint leaves. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

Step 4 – Pour mixture into moulds and add chocolate chips, dividing evenly.

Step 5 – Freeze for at least 4 hours. Un-mould and Enjoy!
