Chia Seed Nectarine Popsicles (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Vegan) | © 2014 |

These chia seed nectarine popsicles are more than just a summer cooler, they are nutritious and good for you too. The combination of silky almond milk, sweet juicy nectarines, and crunchy nutty chia seeds make these popsicles a delicious super food. You can experiment the recipe with different types of fruit and milk too.

  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 400 ml Almond milk
  • 2 Nectarines, peeled and pitted
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  1. Whisk together the almond milk and chia seeds in a jar. Fill 8 moulds with half of almond milk-chia mixture. Place them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  2. Peel and pit the nectarines. Place them in the blender together with maple syrup and puree until smooth. Remove the moulds from the freezer and divide among 8 popsicle moulds. Return the moulds to the freezer for another 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the moulds and place a popsicle stick in the middle of each cup, return to freezer again for another 30 minutes.
  4. Lastly, divide the remaining nectarine puree into the moulds and freeze until set, at least 6 hours. | © 2014 | | © 2014 |
