Chocolate Pudding Pops Recipe (dairy-free!)

It’s rare that I “toot my own horn,” but this recipe ROCKS!!!

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/3 cup raw honey

3/4 cup + 2 TBSP water

1 large, ripe avocado (about 10 oz.)

2 ripe bananas (Note: These improve the texture of the pops without adding a detectable banana flavor!)

DIRECTIONS:

Place ingredients in a blender in the order listed above. Blend until smooth, stopping the blender a few times, as needed, to scrape down the sides with a spatula and/or to push the ingredients down into the blade.

Transfer to popsicle molds. Click here to see the ones I use. My molds each hold 1/2 cup, so this makes 5 fudgsicles in these molds.

Freeze for at least 8 hours.

Run mold under hot water until fudgsicle slides right out. Do not force it out or you’ll pull the stick right out of the popsicle…if this happens, the kids will be sad, but it’s not a total loss. Fill the stick hole with water and stick back in the freezer until frozen solid again 😉

Enjoy as a snack or a dessert. Heck, grab one for a quick breakfast – it’s a heck of a lot healthier than the breakfast cereals or PopTarts most kids are eating!! Click here to see how this recipe compares to the ingredients in store-bought fudgsicles, then smile and enjoy!

  2. Lately I just warm the base of the popsicles with my hands and they slide out nicely after a minute or less 🙂 I am definitely going to try this one, my little one loves popsicles. Thank you!
