The following recipes were contributed from past Lean Body Challenge participants, Kristina S. and Hannah B. Both were participants in the Challenge this year, and Kristina was actually the winner of the May Challenge.
These are gluten and dairy-free popsicles that you can make using homemade popsicle molds that you can pick up at a kitchen store or through Amazon.
3 Yummy Homemade Popsicle Recipes
From Kristina S:
Both of these came out pretty tasty- not as sweet as their sugary counterparts, but they really hit the spot on a hot day. For the chocolate one, honey or maple syrup can be used as a sweetener. My boyfriend was used as the taster since he has a massive sweet tooth. He liked both but thought the Fauxdsicle could have been more chocolatey. It worked for me.
Also, I’m not sure if it makes a huge difference, but I use a high speed blender and I think it factored in a bit with the chocolate one as I blended it well and almost heated it a bit through blending. I’m guessing this helped with the gelatin.
(makes about 6-8 pops)
- ½ banana
- ½ avocado
- 1 ½ cup Coconut Milk
- 2 Tbs Cacao Powder
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 tsp gelatin (use the red canister from Great Lakes Gelatin)
- 1/2c coconut water
- 6 pitted dates
Blend well until dates are fully incorporated and the mixture starts to get a little frothy. Pour into containers and freeze!
(makes 8-12 pops)
- 2 c fresh pineapple
- 1 c coconut water (from young coconut)
- 1 c coconut milk
- ½ c young coconut meat
Blend, pour in mold, and freeze!
