- In bowl, combine dates and 2 1/2 cup (625 mL) water. Let stand for 30 minutes to let dates soften slightly.
- Add water-date mixture, bananas, sweet potato, cocoa powder, honey and vanilla to blender; blend on high for 1 minute or until very smooth. (You should have 5 cups/1.25 L of the mixture; add more water if needed.)
- In small bowl, measure 20 scoops ThickenUp® Clear. Add to blender with pop mixture. Blend on low speed for 30 seconds. Allow 15 minutes to reach desired consistency (this will be the final consistency of the pop, even if it melts slightly). Pour into ten 1/2 cup (125 mL) ice pop moulds. Freeze for 3 to 5 hours or until set.
Note: For IDDSI LEVEL 2, in small bowl, measure 10 scoops ThickenUp® Clear.
