Can rich, creamy chocolate coconut popsicles be sugar free? You bet! Thanks to Truvia® Natural Sweetener for sponsoring today’s post through Social Stars where I’ll show you how to make this tasty frozen treat. #TruFanCommunity
You remember when I told you that I’ve been trying to cut way back on sugar? I thought it would short-lived like any other diet I’ve ever tried, but it’s really not even that bad! I’ve even gotten used to coffee with no sugar, which was probably the biggest adjustment. It helps that there are natural sweeteners that still let me enjoy sweet treats. I’m especially enjoying using Truvia® Natural Sweetener as a sugar substitute. It’s made with stevia, which is a plant that provides natural sweetness without calories.
So far I’ve put Truvia® Natural Sweetener in margaritas, cookies, iced tea, and these rich, creamy popsicles. They are made with coconut and almond milks, so they are dairy free. They have no added sugar either, so these can be diet and allergy friendly! Would you believe this is the first popsicle recipe I’ve ever shared here? I think they are a food blogger recipe staple in the summer months, but I had never gotten around to making my own. When Truvia® Brand asked me to create a frozen treat, I knew it would have to be something creamy instead of fruity because that’s how I roll. These frozen treats rich in creamy coconut and chocolate flavor really hit the spot on a hot day!
The weekend is headed our way, and what better time to throw a popsicle party? Stick a batch of these coconut chocolate pops in the freezer, and maybe try my friend Cathy’s Skinny Pumpkin Pie Pops too. Have a super fun time right in your own backyard with cool, frozen treats, and don’t feel an ounce of guilt since they are sugar free!
