Chocolate drizzle ingredients
200g cacao butter
⅓ cup coconut sugar
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 ⅓ cups cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla
pinch Himalayan sea salt
Melt cacao butter on low heat until completely melted.
Whisk in the coconut sugar while still on low heat.

Drizzle over the frozen green smoothie pops.
Pour the remaining mixture into a small paper-lined tray or container and put in the fridge to set.
