The lovely Eleanor Ozich has shared with us a recipe for delicious chocolate dipped creamsicles. The perfect summer treat for you and your little ones. Enjoy! Nb xx
These healthier, homemade creamsicles are luxuriously creamy and packed full of goodness. Coconut cream, maple, and cashews are blended with a touch of refreshing peppermint, they're then frozen and dipped in melted chocolate for maximum delight.
3/4 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 6 hours
1 1/2 cups coconut cream
4 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey
2 tsp pure vanilla bean paste
2 tsp peppermint extract
200g good quality chocolate
Drain cashews, and add to a blender along with the remaining ingredients. Blend until creamy and lusciously smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
Pour the mixture in moulds, then pop a wooden stick into the centre of each. Freeze for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
To serve, remove from the freezer and run the moulds under hot water for a few seconds to help loosen them.
Dip each creamsicle in to melted chocolate, and enjoy immediately. You can also pop them back in to the freezer once they've been dipped, simply store in a container, and take out as you wish.
