These ice lollies are made with only four ingredients, which are all super healthy! These are the creamiest and most chocolaty lollies you will ever taste – it’s hard to believe something that tastes so gorgeous is completely guilt-free and really good for you! They are ridiculously quick and easy to make – simply put all the ingredients in a blender and mix. Then pour into the lolly molds and freeze. Simple!

These are ideal for busy mums who have children who are dairy intolerant, or if you just want to help your children eat less sugar and a healthier diet.

I throw these together when I desperately need a chocolate fix but don’t have much time for anything else. I use full fat coconut cream by Biona (see below) and cashew milk which makes them very creamy.

Sweetener

They are sweetened with either honey or Biona | Pear & Apple Spread – organic | 2 x 450g

Actually, the Biona Spread works really well with the chocolate. If using honey make sure it has been cold-expressed and says on the jar “cold extracted”. All cheaper, mass produced honey in supermarkets has been highly processed, thus making it no better than processed cane sugar – see Sugar Alternatives: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Chocolate

You will also notice the recipe uses cacao and not cocoa. The difference is that, again the cocoa in supermarkets has been processed using very high temperatures which results in the loss of most of its nutrients. Cacao is chocolate in its purest, unrefined and raw state retaining all of its health benefits, including Vitamin C; magnesium; iron; chromium and antioxidants – see Healthier Options. I only use cacao from detoxyourworld.com, simply because it is the best chocolate I have ever tasted! Once you try it, you will never buy any other chocolate again!

*These are suitable if you are on the full GAPS diet, provided you can digest the chocolate without any problems. This is not commercial chocolate, which is NOT allowed on the diet. This recipe uses raw cacao or cocoa. The gaps.me website comments, “many people can start having cocoa occasionally on the Full GAPS Diet, once the digestive symptoms are gone”.

Please note: The recipe makes approx 600 ml of mixture in total. This is enough to fill 8 x 75 ml lolly moulds. In the recipe I use this ice-lolly maker from Lakeland below –
