Healthy chocolate popsicles? What a concept! How? Dark chocolate almond milk with cocoa added for extra chocolatey richness. Cherries are also added for richness and sweetness with an homage to Black Forest Cake, or Schwarzwälder Kirshtorte as the Germans know it.
This Summer Popsicle Series has been so much fun. I feel like a kid again, especially when throwing the stuff into the blender and waiting with anticipation for 3 hours to see how it’s going to turn out. Licking the spoons, getting my fingers sticky, the long forgotten pleasures of youth.
Make this as a healthy dessert for your family. These pops are great all Summer long, especially in the hot afternoons.
