Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place dates in a bowl, cover with hot water, and soak until soft, about 6 to 10 minutes; drain.

  • Puree dates, bananas, coconut milk, almond milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, and salt together in a blender until smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes; pour into popsicle molds.

  • Freeze until solid throughout, about 6 hours.

Cook's Notes:

For an even tastier ice pop, use full-fat coconut milk instead--or add 1/3 cup sliced strawberries or bananas into the molds before freezing.

Add extra dates for more sweetness, or sea salt to counter the sweetness.

If you have leftover puree, freeze in ice cube molds overnight, pop them out, and store in a bag or container for a sweet frozen treat. Place 2 or 3 in a bowl and defrost on counter for 5 to 8 minutes before eating
