Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberry Basil Popsicles


Cool up with basil

Here’s an easy and healthy popsicle recipe, featuring one of my favorite combo of ingredients– strawberries, basil and pine nuts. Let’s call this frozen treat the adult version of strawberry popsicles. Made with ripe August-strawberries and covered with strong dark chocolate, these refreshing non-dairy creations are necessity for the hot summer days. If you adore strawberries and basil as much as I do, you’ll love these delicious pops!

Because of the coconut oil the chocolate topping will harden in seconds.

9. For extra flavour decorate the popsicles with roasted pine nuts. Make sure you add the pine nuts immediately after you took the popsicles out the chocolate topping. Otherwise the pine nuts won’t stick to the glaze.
