Holla!! Chocolate, my friends! My fave thing. I’m actually eating a square of dark chocolate right now (my work fuel).

So I started making healthy fudgesicles a couple of years ago, and they were a bit of an obsession of mine. THEN I started making nice cream (nice cream pie, anyone)? THEN I thought why not turn that chocolate nice cream into a popsicle?! Why not, indeed. 

These healthy fudgesicles have quickly become a household favourite. They’re not as sweet as a traditional fudgesicle, but my kids don’t complain! You can certainly add more sweetener to them if you think they’re in need of it.

How do you make healthy fudgesicles?

The best part about these cool treats are that there is only 5 ingredients. 5!!! And they also take literally 5 minutes to throw together. In a blender, combine full-fat coconut milk, one frozen banana, cocoa powder, maple syrup and vanilla extract. I use full-fat coconut milk to get that extra creaminess sensation that a fudgesicle should have; I wouldn’t recommend almond milk or light coconut milk. The popsicle will be too icy! 

Once the mixture is blended up and smooth (about 1 minute), pour it into popsicle molds. I use this one. You’ll get around 8 popsicles. Freeze the popsicles for 10 minutes before inserting a popsicle stick, then freezing for another 4-5 hours before removing! 

As you can see, I drizzled mine with chocolate too and added a few crushed nuts. It definitely adds a nice little decadent touch to it! Plus, it’s pretty ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, before I forget, Oscar (my oldest) is 5 TODAY!! 5! I don’t even know how I have a 5 year old. Someone, please turn back the clocks! We celebrated Ozzy’s birthday on the weekend with friends and thankfully it was a gorgeous day. He had a blast!

Hubby and I were up until 12:30 Friday night finalizing his cake, but I think it was worth it. I’m posting a photo of it over on Instagram later today!

We’ve finally got some SUNSHINEY weather this week and I’m going to take full advantage of it. I love fall, but I’m SO not ready for it yet! For now, I’m basking in the sun and eating as many healthy fudgesicles as I can! 🌞

Cool and creamy is probably your thing, so you should definitely take a lookey-loo at my healthy raspberry coconut popsicles, too!

Description

These cool, creamy, healthy fudgesicles are made using chocolate nice cream so they’re low in calories but high on taste! This chocolate popsicle recipe is also refined sugar free!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk* (400mL)
  • 1 frozen banana, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup**
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: 2 oz chopped dark chocolate, chopped nuts

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the coconut milk, chopped banana, cocoa powder, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Divide the mixture among a popsicle mold, leaving about 1/2″ at the top. Freeze the fudgesicles for about 10 minutes before removing and inserting the popsicle sticks. Freeze for another 5-6 hours until solid.
  2. To remove the popsicles, run hot water over the outside of the mold for a few seconds. Enjoy immediately, or remove to a resealable plastic bag for later use!
  3. Optional: For the chocolate drizzle, lay the fudgesicles (after setting 4-5 hours) side by side on a piece of parchment paper. Add the chopped chocolate to a microwaveable bowl, and heat in 30 second increments until smooth. Use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the tops of the fudgesicles and sprinkle the chopped nuts on top.

Fudgesicles can be kept in the freezer for 1-2 weeks.


Notes

*I HIGHLY recommend full-fat coconut milk vs light, or another dairy-free alternative. The full-fat milk ensures the fudgesicles are thick and creamy!

**You can substitute the maple syrup for honey or agave syrup.
