Ingredients

  • 1 Cup low-fat milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Sneaky Chef Orange Purée
  • 3 Tablespoons sweetened hot cocoa mix
  • 2 Tablespoons wheat germ

In a blender, combine all ingredients except chocolate chips or marshmallows, if using.

Blend until smooth. Drop a couple of chips or mini marshmallows into the bottom of each ice pop mold, then pour in the cocoa mixture, insert stick, and freeze for at least three hours.

Cocoa Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Cocoa Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
