So recently I did a community event where we handed out gut healing popsicles. They were a huge hit and those who loved them the most went on and on about how decadent and rich and delicious they were. Funny thing is that they were very low in sugar, high in healthy fats and anti-oxidants. So I wanted to share the recipe with everyone. You could absolutely replace the cocoa with vanilla or strawberry puree or even stick blueberrries or other fruit into the “batter”. I usually make them chocolate because it is super easy and a crowd pleaser. This same recipe can also be served heated in the winter for a delicous, decadent, brain healthy hot chocolate. For your convenience, I have included affiliate links. For my full disclosure policy click here.
you will need popsicle molds or you can use an ice tray with toothpicks. instructions here.
1 TABLESPOON OF ORGANIC PURE MAPLE SYRUP (can be replaced with stevia extract, to taste)
1 TABLESPOON OF COCOA POWDER (omit for CEP and double the vanilla to make vanilla popsicles or replace with a few tablespoons of fruit puree, such as raspberry or strawberry or cherry)
1/4 TEASPOON VANILLA BEAN POWDER
2 TABLESPOONS OF COLLAGEN PEPTIDES
You will need popsicle molds. This recipe makes about 3.5 large popsicles. I used this size here.
Heat ingredients and stir with a whisk until smooth and warm. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. To make them come out easier, rinse warm water (not hot) over the mold before removing the popsicle. Serve as soon as you remove them from the mold.
The best part of this recipe is that it has protein that helps heal leaky gut and is good for you. The sugar content equals between 3/4 and 1 teaspoon per popsicle and the taste is rich and amazing. Also, if you are doing MCT Keto (such as wahl’s level 3) then the macros add up so as to not throw you out of ketosis (this doesn’t apply to traditional keto). The fat level is also great for slowing the sugar into your blood stream, preventing spikes in blood sugar. So make sure you get the full fat stuff! (its good for your brain, too!)
