Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Popsicles -Dairy Free, Gluten Free, & Vegan using Hail Merry Bites!

When you think of summertime what is the first treat to come to your mind? For my family it's Popsicles! We love to make our own, usually with fresh pureed fruit or yogurt. They are made even easier if you have a Popsicle maker like a Zoku {best Christmas gift ever for my girls!}. Today I am sharing a delicious 3 ingredient Popsicle recipe but with a twist! This version is dairy free, gluten free, and vegan. But you would never know because they are the smoothest, creamiest, delicious Popsicles around.
 I was lucky enough to receive a awesome sample box from Hail Merry and momsmeet.com last month. Their tasty Merry Bites come in a variety of flavors and are rich and decadent but -get this- they are made with organic coconut oil so they are raw, vegan, gluten free, and dairy free! 
My family and I devoured all the treats but luckily I was able to save a pack of their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Merry Bites to add to my Dairy Free Popsicles

How amazing does all this look?!
You bet I rock that hat and shirt all.the.time too!

A little more about Hail Merry. 

Hail Merry is a snack food company that celebrates the benefits of raw
plant-based dietary oils, including heart-healthy raw almond flour and
organic virgin coconut oil. 

• All flavors of Merry Bites are Certified C.L.E.A.N., Certified GlutenFree,
Certified Vegan, Certified Kosher, Dairy-Free, Grain-Free,
Peanut-Free, Paleo-Friendly and Non-GMO Verified. They also do not
contain highly-refined sugars or flours.
• The unique process of dehydrating Merry Bites at low temperatures
protects the delicate raw fats in the organic virgin coconut oil and
almond flour, which helps maintain freshness and leaves the dough
super moist and satisfying. These cookies are FRESH, unlike typical
shelf-stable packaged cookies.
• The notion of low-fat or fat-free cookies and snacks is the opposite of
the Hail Merry experience. Merry Bites feature healthy plant-based
fats that balance the total carb load. This is the miracle behind our
guilt-free snacks and desserts.

I use my emersion blender but a regular blender would work too. 
You want the mixture well combined and smooth.
I use my Zoku Popsicle Maker. You simple freeze the base for 24 hrs. 
Then the popsicles freeze in 7 minutes. 
You can also pour into traditional popsicle molds and place in the freezer overnight.
