Strawberry Pops

Treat yourself, without turning on the oven, during these hot summer days.  These pops are decadent, but most importantly, raw, vegan, organic, and soy/gluten free.

Makes approx 6 – 8

Sweetness – 1/3
Difficulty – 2/3

  • 6-8 large ripe strawberries, stems removed
  • 1 cup organic dark chocolate chips
  • shredded coconut
  • dash of oil
  • 6-8 ice pop sticks

Insert an ice pop stick over halfway into each strawberry. Place on a large plate and put in the freezer for two or three hours to harden.

Five minutes before you remove the strawberries from the freezer, add the shredded coconut to a small plate, and melt the chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat. Stir with a spatula until melted and remove from heat. If the chocolate is thick, add a dash of oil to it. (Do not add water) Remove strawberries from freezer. Try to avoid handling them with their sticks.

Use the spatula or a spoon to cover each strawberry with chocolate. Roll it in the shredded coconut or sprinkle it on top while the chocolate is still wet. Allow to dry for a few seconds before placing back on the plate.

Freeze for another 30 minutes to set. Best served frozen, but also tastes great mushy!
