It’s still hot enough to enjoy some delicious strawberry horchata ice cream, vegan style. This is one recipe that won’t disappoint.

strawberry_horchata_ice_cream_pop_sunwarrior_protein_picHere’s a treat that should be a staple in everyone’s freezer. With an El Salvadoran beverage in mind, I attempted to create a bold new dessert dish that traces back to tradition. My Very Strawberry Horchata Ice Cream Pops became a complete success. With a rich and creamy smooth texture, this snack delivers yet another tasty way to enjoy a piece of Latin heritage.

Original horchata recipes are typically based on white rice and sugar, so I took it upon myself to make something that didn’t consist of simple carbs, additives, or refined sugars. This recipe uses wholesome foods, real ingredients, and plant-based proteins that don’t spike blood sugar levels or leave you in an energy crash. It turned out quite good, and from my taste test, better than any non-dairy-milk based dessert out there. But of course, that’s my opinion. You may want to try them yourselves. All I can tell you is that once you take one bite, you won’t be able to stop.
