Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Popsicles

As you may know, chocolate chip cookies have always been my favorite sweet and I would be lying if I told you I never crave it. I do think about it sometimes, especially when I pass by a bakery and smell them being freshly baked.

So what to do when these cravings kick in? I think of a way of incorporating nutrient dense ingredients with chocolate chips. I came across this recipe from a book called The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook by Lindsay Landis a while back, and while her recipe contains refined sugars and other ingredients I don’t eat, I adapted her idea and made these popsicles with healthy ingredients.

I am so pleased with how they turned out and they fully satisfy those chocolate chip cookie cravings. Best of all, they are a great refreshing cold summer treat! They don’t actually have any cookie dough in them, but when you try them you will know what I mean by Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Popsicles. Enjoy!
