Vegan Chocolate Pudding Popsicles

Adapted from About.com 

1/2 sugar 
1/3 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot as a substitute (substitution is one-to-one)
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk beverage or rice or almond milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In a saucepan, whisk together the corn starch, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Break up any lumps so that the pudding comes out nice and smooth. Slowly whisk in the nut milk over low heat, and continue to stir until the mixture starts to thicken (about 10 minutes). Continue to stir for 2 to 3 minutes until it thickens, and stir in your vanilla. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

  • The chocolate peanut butter smoothie pop sounds so good. I have found that peanut butter can actually mask the taste of almost any dark leafy green, and, contrary to what many people say, it’s actually healthy. I garden, so I freeze my excess kale (after blanching it in hot water and rinsing it in cold water) in little bags for green smoothies. Have you noticed any health issues with using soy? I noticed there was a recipe with tofu in it and wondered what your thoughts might be on that.

    • Yes, peanut butter definitely masks the taste of any dark leafy green, which is great for kids who will wince at the thought of anything green in their shakes!  Great idea to freeze the extra kale — blanching in hot water and then rinsing in cold is an excellent idea! As for soy, I just wrote an article all about soy, and I invite you to read it here: Do soy products cause cancer

      Thanks!

  • These are all great choices, and with the summer heat here they will be perfect for a cool down for the kids and me! I am going to print the page and give some of these a try. They all look yummy! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Wow, these sound amazing! Can’t wait to try them for myself. I’ve been looking for a lactose free creamy sweet treat!
