1 cup cold filtered coffee or espresso
1/3 cup PRANA organic hazelnut butter
1 cup almond milk
2-3 tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup PRANA organic chocolate chunks, 70% cacao
2 tbsp PRANA organic coconut oil
some PRANA organic raw hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
In a blender or mixer, combine the coffee, hazelnut butter, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla at high speed for a few seconds.
Pour the mix into the popsicle molds and freeze for 4 hours.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bain marie or double boiler, melt together the chocolate chunks and the coconut oil.
Pour the melted chocolate into a tall glass and let cool for several minutes (it should still be liquid, but not as hot as when it came off the stove).
Gently remove the frozen popsicles from their molds.
Dip each popsicle in the melted chocolate, sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts and place on the baking sheet.
Freeze again for at least 30 minutes.
Yield will vary according to the size of the popsicle moulds.
