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: 20 minutes
Total Time: 7 hours
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.
