From being overweight, bruised, covered in acne and depressed, Monica Kay of Shanti Art transformed into a sought after model in her 40’s, joyful pole dance performer, yoga instructor and animal rights activist after she went vegan. She loves sharing her plant star cooking knowledge with us on #LunchBreakLIVE. She wowed us with her fudgey freezy pops!

Monica showed us a quick and easy base version, which is great to have as a protein-packed post-workout snack, but then also showed an assortment of variations that substituted banana for protein powder, and added different flavors, spices, fruits, and shapes. She even showed us how to make them without freezer pop molds. Her explanations about the different freezing temperatures of chocolate with and without plant milk in getting the hardness that you want… demystifying the whole process. Monica used her plant-based nutrition certificate from Cornell to keep us educated about the finer points of freezy pops!

You will need a freezer pop mold. They can be found at dollar stores, grocery stores, kitchen specialty stores, Asian markets, Target, etc. (If you don’t have one, she demonstrated in the video how to make freezy pops using a ziplock plastic sandwich bag.)
