Dark chocolate and toasted almonds make for a great pair, don’t you think?  Now take that flavor combo and chill it to make a great warm day yum-yum.  Paletas are a perfect way to cool down.  This recipe incorporates a creamy almond milk base with rich, slightly bitter dark chocolate and some toasted almonds mingled through.  Add a little sea salt to the mix for a nice little salty kick and you got one awesome vegan-friendly frozen treat.

WHAT YOU NEED:

– 1 ½ cups of almond milk;
– ¼ cup of sugar;
– pinch of sea salt;
-2-4 teaspoons of slivered almonds, toasted (depends on how much crunch you want the paletas to have;
– 3-4 tablespoons of dark cocoa powder;

WHAT YOU DO:

Pour milk into a small saucepan and heat on low.  Let milk heat slightly, then add sugar, cocoa powder and salt.  Stir to dissolve until incorporated into the milk.
