Dark chocolate paddle pops
There is nothing better than a luscious homemade deep dark chocolate to lick away the hot holiday season. Enjoy this dark chocolate paddle pop to treat with your family that is gluten-free and nut free to make it the best holiday ever.
This summer holiday season we are experimenting with different versions of paddle pops (popsicles).  Fruits juices,  crushed whole fruit, plant-based milk, agar-infused wobbly ones. We have a whole list. As always, you have to begin with the best kind of dessert, isn’t it? The ever-satisfying dark chocolate ones. 
Why dark chocolate?
Chocolate is kind of the best dessert in the world. Dark chocolate is kind of good for your health in many ways. When we say dark chocolate,  yes it’s bitter, let’s look for the one which has a high amount of cocoa, no added sugar and no milk products.  It’s the additions that make it good, bad or worse for your health based on your choice.
So slowly steer your choices this way so you can come up to 90 per cent dark chocolate.

How is dark chocolate useful?

When on a weight-loss program you would have noticed dark chocolate for dessert.  This is because dark chocolate is proven to satisfy the cravings for fatty food and also for sweets.  Make sure you choose the dark chocolate and not the milky sweet ones and don’t forget moderation is the key.
Dark chocolate is slightly helpful in reducing blood pressure and hugely helpful in stress management. This is particularly due to the presence of cocoa polyphenols.
Along with proper exercise, dark chocolate is heart-healthy. This is because of the high content of flavonoids. However, it is not a flavour we readily accept due to the high bitterness.
How to start on dark chocolate?
If you are new to dark chocolate and have enjoyed milk or white chocolate more often, it will take a while before you like dark chocolate. You may want to start with 60 per cent or 75 per cent to ease you into it.  Start with small nibbles and change your drinking chocolate to cocoa powder. You can also nibble on cocoa nibs as they have a lot of cocoa butter in them that helps you adapt to the pure chocolate flavour
Why does chocolate make you feel good?
If you have to answer this in one sentence I would say,  the three hundred-odd chemicals in it work magic to release happy chemicals in our brains. Phenylethylamine or the magic potion (love drug) is one of them. Then, the fats that cause dopamine release really give a sense of well-being. Additional endorphins promote the lowering of pain and stress. Overall having a bite of chocolate therefore makes one happy.

I make avocado dark chocolate mousse and the combo is so flavourful and creamy. Am sure the popsicles will be equally tasty. A wonderful no sugar dessert option. Time to make these dark chocolate pops as the avocados I bought a few days ago are ripe and ready.

These chocolate paddle pops are a treat for the scorching summers. True, it takes some time to get used to bitter chocolate. Will give it a try.
