Vegan tahini and cacao popsicles make for a rich flavor duo and an easily delicious cool treat on a hot day.

Tahini and Cacao Popsicles

This time of year, I’m always too hot and looking for cooling things. My favorite warm weather snack is a huge bowl of super chilled watermelon – my all-time favorite Summer love. I’ve been using my popsicle molds like crazy since I’m always looking for some kind of chilled treat. Sometimes it’s leftover green smoothie popsicles, berry and yogurt pops or something a little more decadent. This recipe is from Virpi & Tuulia’s lovely new book N’ICE CREAM – which should be your Summer staple. It’s filled with vegan (or non-dairy) ice creams and desserts that you can whip up in 5 minutes with simple, pure ingredients. These pops are like ice cream – super creamy with nothing but a blender. Plus, I love anything that marries tahini and chocolate together. 90 degree humidity might not be fun, but eating ice cream pops isn’t so bad either.
