Energy, deliciousness, and healthy-goodness on a stick!

 Make these snacks, freeze them, and get them out when the weather is warm enough to pretend it’s already Summer….

Providing all the antioxidant benefits of raw cacao, mood-boosting goodness of cashews (A large handful actually contains the same amount of tryptophan as a prescription dose of Prozac!), blood-sugar balancing help from cinnamon, healthy fats of coconut, the natural sweetness and energy-boost benefits of dates, iron content of lucuma, and anxiety-reducing elements of vanilla extract.

Ingredients:

2 tbsp raw cacao

1 cup cashew nuts

6 dates

1tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp lucuma powder

dessicated coconut for rolling

You’ll also need:

A strong blender or food processor

Recyclable wooden popsicle sticks

A freezer!

HOW TO:

  • In a blender or food processor, finely grind the cashews.
  • Add all of the other ingredients and continue to pulse until everything starts to bind together (If the mixture seems a little dry, you could add more dates or a little water)
  • Scrape all of the ingredients out of the blender and roll in to little balls (just smaller than a golf ball – be generous!)
  • Pop the balls on to the end of your wooden popsicle sticks (make sure they’re recyclable!)
  • Place your popsicles in the freezer for a few hours 

When you take them out, they’ll taste like delicious frozen chocolate popsicles, but these ones are full of health boosting nutrients. Enjoy!

If you can get your hands on it – raw chocolate is known to be a pretty effective stimulant and aids in raising our mood by a long way. For a feel good raw chocolate recipes, click HERE. […]
