Chocolate and Coconut Paleo Popsicles

I’m going to admit it. I can afford to be a little bit healthier. Okay, well… a lot healthier. Sugar seems to be my culprit. No matter how many times I think I’m making healthy choices, sugar is still very, very present in my selections which causes me to never reach my goals and slowly start packing on the pounds.
I’ve never been into fad diets and am looking to still enjoy what I love, just a healthier version of it.

Enter popsicles.

Because hello! Who doesn’t love a good popsicle on a damn hot day (thanks Texas summers!). These popsicles are all natural made with natural sugars. None of the white sugar/white death stuff. They may not be able to cure this Texas heat but they can certainly break it for a few.
