Dr. Mark Hyman's Raspberry-Lemon Ice Pops

These aren't your average sweet frozen treats: gelatin powder provides the perfect protein kick you won't get from any other ice pops. That makes these excellent for post-workout recovery fuel and a quite literal cool down session! They're also perfect for fitting important nutrients into a tasty snack for your kids.

2 1/4 cups full-fat coconut milk
2 1/2 tsp unflavored gelatin powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp alcohol-free, gluten-free pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

1. Place 1/4 cup of the coconut milk in a medium heatproof bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over it and set it aside to bloom for 5 minutes.

 

2. Heat the remaining 2 cups coconut milk with the maple syrup, lemon zest, cardamom, vanilla, and sea salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Whisk the softened gelatin into the saucepan and continue whisking until all of it is dissolved.

 

3. Allow the mixture to chill for 15 to 20 minutes. Place 3 to 4 raspberries in each ice pop mold, then fill with the liquid. Place the pops in the freezer to set for a minimum of 4 hours.
