  • 3.5 oz (100 grams) chopped dark chocolate, 55% cocoa at least
  • 1/4 cup nut butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup vegan milk (or regular milk for non-vegans)
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cups honey or maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups ripe bananas (about 4 large)

  • 8 espresso paper cups /94 oz / 100 ml)

Recipe Notes

  • Suggested nut butters: tahini, peanut butter, hazelnut butter, almond butter, cashew butter
  • For the magic shell, you’ll need to melt together 5.25 oz (150 grams) dark chocolate, 1.75 oz (50 grams) coconut oil and 1 teaspoon honey. Wait until lukewarm to use.
  • Dip half a popsicle in a small bowl filled with magic shell and sprinkle with nuts. Wait 10-20 seconds to set.
  • It is best to unmold each popsicle just before eating, but you can also unmold them all together and store in the freezer in an airtight container.
