Chocolate Hazelnut Coconut Yogurt Pops

The perfect blend of flavors come together beautifully in this recipe for Chocolate Hazelnut Coconut Yogurt Pops. Just the right amount of chocolate flavor comes from the chocolate flavored almond milk and the coconut flavor shines through from the coconut milk and toasted coconut Greek yogurt. Nutella flavor is subtle enough that makes you stop and go, hmmm.

Aldi

Most people know by reading my blog that I am an avid Aldi shopper. The prices at Aldi just can’t be beat. For instance, one 16 oz container of strawberries were on sale for .99¢. Cartons of almond milk, chocolate almond milk and my fav, coconut milk is sold for $2.69, give or take a few pennies. Aldi has a really nice selection of Made in Germany products, specialty cheeses, specialty meats such as prosciutto and smoked salmon or lox. This is only the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. If it’s been some time since you stopped into an Aldi, stop in, grab a cart (.25¢) and take a look around.

Toasted Coconut

If you’re a fan of coconut, you will definitely love toasted coconut. Toasting coconut is fast and easy. Simply sprinkle a 14-16 oz bag of sweetened flaked coconut on a parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 5-15 minutes. While coconut is in the oven, check often. One important rule of thumb when toasting coconut is; do not leave the coconut unattended. Coconut can go from light golden brown to burnt in about 2.5 seconds!
