Making a healthy, filling, and delicious dessert doesn’t have to mean spending hours in the kitchen. These creamy, heavenly-spiced popsicles are a cinch to create and only require a bit of patience in the freezer before you indulge.
The coconut milk in these pops provide a helping of good-for-you fats while the chia seeds lend omega-3 fatty acids and fiber to keep you satiated long after you’ve had your dessert. I’m a huge fan of aromatic herbs and spices, like this chai spice mixture. It gives a pop of flavor without extra calories and actually helps to boost your immune system and other body functions. Amazing Mother Nature!
