Pro tips:

  • If you don’t have lollipop or cake pop sticks, you can use popsicle sticks, toothpicks, or whole cinnamon sticks. Or, make cake balls — no sticks required!
  • To decorate cake pops, immediately after dipping in chocolate dip them in finely chopped nuts, graham cracker crumbs, or finely chopped coconut flakes. Additional toppings will affect nutrition information.
  • Add festive color by placing finely chopped coconut flakes in a plastic bag with a drop or two of food coloring; massage between your fingertips until color is evenly distributed.
  • For a holiday treat, these can also be sprinkled with finely crushed peppermint candy — a little goes a long way.
  • Make an easy, DIY cake pop stand by poking small holes into the lid of a small cardboard box.

  • 2 scoops Chocolate Shakeology
  • 4 pitted dates
  • ¼ cup / 30 g almond flour
  • ¼ cup / 60 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 6 lollipop sticks (see tip below for alternatives)
  • ¼ cup / 40 g semisweet (or dark) chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin coconut oil
