"Mocha" Popsicles

I've been on a bit of a popsicle kick lately.  I purchased these cheap molds at amazon and I've been filling them with all sorts of delicious, healthy fare.

Yesterday I made Cranberry Mango Popsicles.  

Today I made Mocha Popsicles using coffee and cocoa powder.  I like to add organic vanilla yogurt to give it a nice creamy texture.

Mocha Popsicles

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups strong coffee
1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
*or chocolate syrup*
agave or stevia, optional
Popsicle mold

Directions:
Add all of your ingredients into a blender.  Blend until smooth.  Pour "mocha" mixture into your molds, add sticks and place in the freezer.
In the picture it looks like I separated the yogurt and coffee.  I didn't.  It foamed a bit in the blender so it kinda separated.

Popscicles should be ready in about 4 hours. They are delicious!

Enjoy your weekend!

In case you missed it...
