Description

A wonderfully refreshing popsicle slice made with candied carrots. Dairy-free grab and go treat, no baking required. Gluten and refined-sugar free.


Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 cup toasted pumpkin seeds (or can use tigernuts, sunflower seeds and if not nut-free, use pecans, cashews, almonds, etc.)
  • 2 soft medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Filling:

  • 1 ½ cups steamed carrots (cooled off to room temp).
  • ½ cup non dairy yogurt of your choice (I used an agave sweetened coconut yogurt)
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp salt

Optional Toppings:

  • a bit more coconut yogurt for swirls, some pumpkin seeds, cacao nibs or chocolate shavings

Instructions

  1. Process all crust ingredients into a finely crumbly sticky mixture. Transfer into two 4″ springform pans (or a dish of a similar size lined with parchment paper) and press down into a flat crust. Place in the freezer while working on next step.
  2. Blend all filling ingredients into a smooth mixture in a high speed blender. Pour over the crust, divided evenly between the two pans. Optional: decorate with a swirl (I used this pen tool to make mine, though a small piping bag would work great too), and any desired toppings.
  3. Freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight to set, thaw out slightly to slice and enjoy! (Store leftovers frozen).
