20(ish)--- Chocolate Mint Chia Pudding Pops {Dairy-Free}


Chia seeds are so versatile! Mix a few of those little suckers with a liquid and you have instant gelatin, no animal by-products required! And to boot they are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids and some claim that they help ease digestion.

These are perfect little treats for your summer evening! 

Chocolate Mint Chia Pudding Pops {Dairy-Free}
Makes 5-6 pops (depending on the size of your molds)

2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3-4 Tbsp sugar (to taste)
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 Tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 tsp pure mint extract (if desired)

Whisk together sugar and cocoa powder, then add in chia seeds and mint.  Mix in vanilla milk and allow to sit for 10 minutes.  Whisk again, then taste.  Add in mint extract if desired.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Whisk and return to refrigerator for additional 6o minutes.  Whisk again, then spoon mixture into popsicle molds, filling nearly to the top.

Freeze molds overnight.  Enjoy!
