Beat the warm temps with a frozen treat

Ripe raspberries are blended into a smoothie and frozen in ice pop molds. Once frozen, these treats take a plunge into dark chocolate for a delicious way to cool down.

Nothing's better than an icy cold fruit smoothie on a hot summer day. Here I took a simple raspberry smoothie recipe that I make for my kids and transformed it into one delicious frozen treat dipped in a homemade chocolate coating. These are super-healthy snacks and nothing to feel guilty about enjoying. If you aren't a fan of raspberries, then simply swap them out for your favorite fruit and create your own personal spin on these refreshing pops.

Chocolate-dipped raspberry smoothies on a stick recipe

Yields 6

Ingredients:

For the smoothie pops

  • Ice pop molds (or you can substitute with paper cups and wooden ice pop sticks)
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen organic raspberries
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons agave or maple syrup

For the chocolate coating

  • 2 ounces good-quality organic dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon agave or maple syrup
  • Pinch sea salt

Directions:

  1. To a blender, add all the ingredients for the smoothie.
  2. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth and creamy. (If you have trouble blending, then add a little more liquid to help the process.)
  3. Pour the smoothie mixture into the ice pop molds, and place the molds in the freezer for several hours or until frozen solid.
  4. In a small sauce pot (or microwave-safe bowl), add the ingredients for the chocolate coating, and warm them until the chocolate has melted. Pour the sauce into a bowl, and allow it to cool.
  5. When ready to coat the smoothie pops, remove them from their molds, hold them by the stick, and carefully dip them into the chocolate mixture.
  6. Lay them on a plate lined with wax paper, and place them back in the freezer for several minutes to allow the chocolate harden.
  7. Remove from the freezer, and enjoy.
