Pumpkin Pie Popsicles layered with chocolate and topped with crunchy pecans make the best healthy autumn treat. Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn't mean we need to stop eating icy desserts.

They're an unlikely pair, these two. Cold summer popsicles and warm autumn pumpkin pie don't seem like two things that belong together, but I assure you, they do.

If you're like me and still hanging onto summer, these pumpkin popsicles will help ease the transition to fall.

Why you'll love pumpkin pie popsicles:

  • All things pumpkin are awesome. But what happens when you combine pumpkin with chocolate is magic. Case in point: Sweet Harvest Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies and Chocolate Vegan Pumpkin Pie.
  • These sweet treats are 100% healthy. You read that right, these babies are made with good for you ingredients.
  • We eat ice cream throughout the year and now you have a good excuse to enjoy a popsicle (or 8) all year round, too.
  • Pumpkin pie in a healthy form. You're welcome.

You don't technically need a popsicle mold to make popsicles (you can fill just about any container, pop a stick in it and freeze it to make popsicles.) But having a mold makes your popsicles look extra popsicle-y.

This is the popsicle mold that I bought for this recipe. Warning: it's pretty much the most expensive one on Amazon. It wasn't easy to hit the buy button but I really like the traditional shape and I love that it's stainless steel. In other words, I'm a sucker for pretty things.

Once you've whipped up your pumpkin pie spice and chocolate batters, simply layer them in the molds. The batters are quite thick so you can layer them without worrying that they'll blend together too much. They'll be a little streaky, which I think is pretty.

These pumpkin pie popsicles are perfect for a healthy treat, a Halloween party, a non-traditional Thanksgiving dessert, or just for the heck of it. Enjoy, my friends!

  • Cuisine: American

Description

Pumpkin Pie Popsicles layered with chocolate and topped with crunchy pecans make the best healthy autumn treat. Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn't mean we need to stop eating icy desserts.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1400ml can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans

The pumpkin layer:

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (see notes)
  • A pinch of sea salt

The chocolate layer:

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon black cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. Pour a half cup of the coconut milk into a medium-sized bowl. Add all the pumpkin layer ingredients and whisk well. Taste the batter and add more maple syrup if you'd like a sweeter popsicle.
  2. Pour the remaining coconut milk into another bowl and whisk in the chocolate layer ingredients.
  3. Layer the two batters in popsicle molds, top with the pecans, and place the popsicle sticks in the batter.  Freeze until firm, at least 2 hours. To release the popsicles from the mold, run hot water over the mold, being careful not to let the water get inside the mold.

Notes

To make your own pumpkin pie spice, mix together: 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon + 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg + 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger + 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice.
