When cooking with vegetables that flower, it’s only natural that most people immediately think of savoury dishes instead of sweet ones. But I’m a big believer that vegetables can be much more versatile than that, and so when I set out to create a recipe with Silk products and flowering vegetables, I decided that I would find a way to also use my all-time favourite flavour – chocolate. Nothing puts a smile on my face more than being able to add extra nutrition to a treat, and with Silk beverages and the right vegetable, I was sure I could do that.
The warm weather acted as my inspiration and I used Silk Coconut Unsweetened beverage and flowering kale to make a batch of Flowering Kale Fudge Pops. These rich and creamy popsicles are a chocolate-lover’s dream come true with a fudgy flavour and tons of nutrition. Boasting calcium, fibre and Vitamins A, C, D and K, these refreshing treats are ones that you can feel good about eating when the weather gets hot!
