Coconut milk sometimes gets a bad rap for being high in fat and calories; it is indeed fat- and calorie-dense. But here’s the thing. Coconut milk is only “bad for you” if you consume it by the gallon, or if you are using coconut milk to make a massive quantity of carbohydrates taste good. In moderation, coconut milk is a healthy addition to a low-carb diet, and adds much needed variety to keto meals.
Today at Crowded Earth Kitchen we are sharing an idea rather than a recipe, because really friends, these popsicles only contain two ingredients. Simply pop open a can of coconut milk, pour about 1/4 of the can in a small bowl, and whisk 1 generous teaspoon of pure cocoa powder into that small bowl. Then, fill your popsicle molds 1/3 full with coconut milk right from the can. Drizzle a bit of cocoa-enhanced coconut milk into each mold, and repeat until the molds are full. One can of coconut milk will fill 6 to 8 popsicle molds, depending upon the size of your molds (mine hold 1/4 cup each). Place filled popsicle molds in freezer, and enjoy when firm.
Note: If you like your popsicles a little sweeter, feel free to blend a tablespoon or two of Stevia or your preferred sweetener into the can of coconut milk first. I think the cocoa powder adds enough flavor that I don’t use any sweetener at all.
Life is short. Play with your food!
