Aspartame: Is this additive destroying YOUR health??

How much sugar is in that soda, anyway?!

Do you know how many grams of sugar are in a can of soda?! Many contain around 40 grams! Of course, that doesn’t really mean much to the average consumer who is unaware that every 4 grams equals nearly 1 teaspooon of sugar! Yep, that’s right! About TEN TEASPOONS of sugar in most cans of soda! Yikes!

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!)

*Check out our Grocery Shopping Guide for our tips on selecting the most additive-free versions of every ingredient used in our recipes.

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!!
