Balsamic-Blueberry Chia Popsicles? Yep, And Trust Us—It Works

Popsicles may be an iconic kids' treat, but that doesn't mean grown-ups can't enjoy them, too. Here, we've added blueberries simmered with balsamic vinegar, honey, black pepper, and sea salt for a more adult take on the classic summer dessert.

Balsamic-Roasted Blueberry Chia Popsicles

Yield: 6 popsicles
Active Time:

Ingredients

1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon raw honey
2 teaspoons coconut sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups coconut milk
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add in blueberries and sauté to blister in the oil. Add in 1 tablespoon honey, coconut sugar, and balsamic vinegar. Stir and let reduce slightly. Stir in black pepper and salt. Set aside to let cool.

In a large bowl, mix together coconut milk, chia seeds, 1/4 cup honey, and vanilla.

Divide blueberries and their juices between popsicle molds. Top with chia mixture, place in popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 6 hours.

To unmold popsicles, run under warm water for 5 to 10 seconds before pulling them out of their molds.
