Chocolate Coating:



  1. Prepare the ice cream: In a high-speed blender, combine the coconut cream, almond butter, syrup, vanilla extract, and the contents of 2–3 capsules of Just Thrive Probiotic. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour into molds: Pour the ice cream into popsicle molds, filling them evenly. Tap the molds gently on the countertop to remove any air bubbles.
