Café Latte Coconut Popsicles

These Café Latte-flavored coconut popsicles are drizzled in a decadent chocolate topping that hardens in the freezer, but melts in your mouth. A sprinkling of shaved coconut and orange zest adds wow-factor and makes them taste like a gourmet ice cream treat. Not bad for a vegan Shakeology snack that has 9 grams of protein per serving!
