Pumpkin Chocolate Popsicle Recipe

Although we generally wear out our popsicle molds in the summer, I couldn’t resist mixing up a pumpkin pop for fall!

Pumpkin is

  • low in calories, yet super high in nutrients- we call it a nutrient dense food!
  • high in antioxidants like alpha and beta carotene (can help support immune function, vision health, and slow aging)
  • a good source of magnesium

Pumpkin Chocolate Popsicles. Don't let fall go by without trying the best pumpkin flavored snack!We decided to make it dairy free, not because we don’t drink milk, but because we love adding coconut milk to our popsicles and smoothies.  It’s another great source of nutrients you might not get in cows milk.  And we eat plenty of other foods that contain dairy (like cheese), so there is no need to over do it.

First we mixed up our ingredients.  We used:

  • Coconut Milk (full recipe below)
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • and honey

Then, we poured the mix into popsicle molds.  We let freeze for several hours, or overnight.  We did try to freeze a few of the popsicles in stages, so we could put a “layer” of chocolate in the middle, but our layering wasn’t that effective. It was much easier to just drizzle some melted chocolate on after the fact.

We took our popsicles out of the mold, and laid them on some parchment paper.  Then, with melted chocolate, I let the kids drizzle it over the pops.  They got a little crazy with it!

Then, we re-froze the popsicles, just for a few minutes. The chocolate sets up super fast on a cold surface, so it practically was ready right away, but we returned to the freezer just until we were ready to eat them for our dessert.

Lynnette says:

Delicious, quick and easy and all the kids liked it.

:D says:

It’s hard to believe that by using carton unsweetened coconut milk (aka as coconut beverage) will make these pumpkin ice pops 460 calories per serving. Also how many ice pops will tbis recipe yield?

Thanks for your comment on this! You are right. We fixed our ingredients and the calories should look more appealing now! It will yield about 2 Popsicles.

So its not canned coconut milk? just the cold or shelf stable? thanks! My kids will love this

I used the cold milk from the carton in the dairy case- however, canned would also work! @suzanne

Susan C says:

You just absolutely amaze me….

Shirley says:

The recipe says to blend all the ingredientes, does that include the chocolate chips?

Not the chocolate chips Shirley- I just re-wrote it for clarification.

Thanks!

Kat says:

Instead of canned pumpkin could you just boil some pumpkin and make your own pumpkin purée ???

Sul says:

I would love to these pops for my girls, however; I don’t have the coconut mil:(
Can I use regular milk instead, or evaporated milk?

For sure @sul! I would use regular milk, or even almond milk or soy milk.

Crissy says:

Is it canned coconut milk or the kind you get in a carton?

I imagine you could use either Crissy- but I used the stuff in the dairy case in the cartons (why do they have to call it the exact same thing, anyway!?)

Shirley says:

I know ! I always ask myself the same

Lisa says:

Looks fantastic! What do you recommend if you do not have pumpkin pie spice? Thanks!

Lisa- you can make it like this:
1 TBL cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tsp allspice
