Vegan Chocolate Popsicle (almost fat free)

What am I doing here?
I have absolutely no clue, do you?
I started this blog on a whim 1 1/2 years back. Had no idea what was involved.
Come to think of it, I am no writer. I write SQL code for a living.
I am no artist. I am not a photographer either.
I didn't know anything about photography a year back, not that I know anything now.
So, why am I doing this? Because I am a foodie? Or have too much time on hand? Or because I like to share my never ending experiments with you all? I think I blog because it is fun. With me on this one?

This was inspired by a comment left by Richa on my 'Rice Milk' post. I have never eaten the chocobar that she was referring to, but I went ahead and made this chocolate popsicle/fudgesicle. This is almost fat free if not for a miniscule amount in the cocoa powder.
One Year backDark Chocolate Mousse
Ingredients:
Rice milk - 2 cups (I used home made, you could use rice dream)
Sugar - 2/3 cups
Cocoa - 1/3 cups (I used dutch processed)
Salt - a pinch (See Notes)
Vanilla - 2 tsp
Method:
Whisk the sugar and cocoa together. If there are any lumps in the cocoa, break them with the whisk or by sifting it. Add salt and slowly add 1 cup of rice milk. Beat it till it is smooth and continue to beat adding the remaining cup of rice milk till all the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the vanilla. Pour into the popsicle molds or cups in my case and freeze. When it is still not frozen solid, insert sticks and let it freeze solid. I didn't call it fudgesicle since it is not rich. I am sure this will be great if made with any other milk.

Notes:
If you use rice dream, omit salt since it is already added. Thanks Priya for pointing it out that I had left out this section altogether.

Enjoy. Pin It

  2. Anonymous, Yes. You may use regular milk. Try to use whole milk since this rice milk is really thick and gives a nice texture.

  13. Thanks everyone.
    Anonymous,
    You will have to read the post Natural Cocoa Vs. Dutch processed cocoa to understand the differences. In this recipe, you can use natural cocoa instead. Go through all the recipe list in the index to see what might work for your kid. Every kid is different and I don't know what your kid might like. You will have to base your dishes around your kid's likings.
