Watermelon is the epitome of summer, and @FoodbyMaria is turning is turning it up a notch with her recipe for Watermelon Chocolate Coconut Popsicles, a clean-eating and delicious summer snack.
All I can think of when I look at these beauties is Summer: BBQ’s, and good laughs with friends outside in the backyard. Summer is all about indulging and it can be tough to keep up with clean eating and health, but these treats are a sweet snack you can enjoy without skipping a beat.
My watermelon chocolate coconut popsicles are made with 3 ingredients only, and served on bamboo popsicle sticks that you can reuse over and over again.
Learn how to make Watermelon Chocolate Coconut Popsicles:
Start by setting a bit of unsweetened desiccated coconut aside – around 1/2 a cup
Take a watermelon, and cut it width wise into 1 inch rounds.
Each round will make you 4 pops.
Cut your rounds into “pizza slices”. Now you need to get those popsicle sticks into the watermelon..so what I did was use a knife to carve a gap to easily slide the popsicle stick in.
Set your desired amount of watermelon pops a side, and prepare your chocolate.
So into a bowl add:
- 2 tbsp Cacao
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp coconut nectar (honey will do)
- Stir till smooth, creamy and rich!
NOTE: the chocolate recipe was food for around 6 (I ate 2 before the chocolate could get to them, oops).
If you have a squirt bottle you can pour the chocolate into it, but if not just begin drizzling the chocolate over the watermelon, and then immediately sprinkling on coconut before the chocolate dries!
That’s it! Simple right?
I suggest letting them cool in the fridge for 5 minutes before serving just so you know for sure that the chocolate has set, and has some time to get hard!
