Paleo Golden Milk Popsicles [Dairy-Free]
Summer may be trickling to an end, and the weather may not be what it was a month or two ago, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t lovely to enjoy a nice cold dessert once and a while. There are so many frozen treats out there, but they are all so packed full of sugar, even the fruit-based ones. And, preservatives? What do you even need preservatives in a frozen popsicle for?
Thankfully, the Paleo diet still leaves many options open for creating a frozen treat of your own. This Paleo golden milk popsicle is full of flavor and sure to give you that chill that you need. The recipe also includes no-dairy which can be very important depending on your diet.
A Treat to Have Around For When You Need It
There are some great options for desserts on a Paleo diet. However, many of them will not last very long sitting out. It is a struggle when you have to put a whole recipe together, even though you probably only need one bite. It can be a lot of effort wasted and can lead to eating more than you need.
The wonderful part about making a batch of popsicles is that they will last in the freezer for whenever you need a treat. Wrapping each individual popsicle in plastic wrap after they are completely frozen will assure they don’t pick up any frostbite or that strange freezer smell. Then they are there for whenever anybody needs them, and you don’t have to overdo it.
This Recipe Has Some Bold Ingredients for a Bold Taste
Sure, when you think of a popsicle, it usually involves a stick of frozen sugar water with some food coloring in it. And, fair enough, it’s what kids crave. Though, it is time to put away those preconceptions and redefine what a popsicle can be.
This recipe is based on coconut milk with some honey, which sounds terrific as it is. But, to add some zest to this treat, it also incorporates turmeric and ginger. Suddenly, we have a popsicle that is not like anything you’ve had before, but it has the boldness of what a frozen snack like this should have.
