the weather is warming up here in NH and we have been making some frozen treats to keep cool. i hope you get a chance to try them all... because i've been making them around the clock just to have something sweet to eat after dinner (ok, after nap, too). 

invisible cookie dough ice pops
2 1/2 c. almond milk
2/3 c. light brown sugar, packed
couple pinches salt
2 t. pure vanilla extract
1/4 c. + 1 t. mini dairy-free chocolate chips

place milk in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for ~1 minute, or until warm to the touch. stir in brown sugar and salt until dissolved. stir in vanilla.

place 1/2 T. of chocolate chips in the bottom of your popsicle molds. fill to the top with milk mixture. insert sticks and freeze until solid.

adapted from this recipe.

orange creamsicles
1 c. orange juice
1 c. full fat coconut milk
3 T. honey
1/4 t.orange extract
1/2 t. vanilla extract

in a medium bowl, whisk all ingredients together.
pour mixture into popsicle molds. let set for 30-60 minutes, then add popsicle sticks. freeze for another 4-6 hours or until frozen.

this recipe can be found here.

chocolate covered frozen bananas
    2 medium bananas
    1/2 c. semi-sweet or dark dairy-free chocolate chips
    1 T. coconut oil

    slice the bananas into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch rounds and place them in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze for at least two hours. once frozen, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave- careful not to burn. remove the bananas from freezer dip each banana slice into the melted chocolate. eat immediately or place them back into the freezer until refrozen.

red, white, & blue popsicles*
leftover coconut milk (the clear liquid)
sliced strawberries 
honey, to taste

*i make these after i make the orange creamsicles with the leftover clear coconut milk. no need to waste it!

place fruit in the popsicle mold. mix coconut milk and honey and pour into molds. freeze and enjoy.

enjoy some summer frozen treats!
