5 ingredient healthy chocolate fudge pops

A cool summer breeze.

Untied shoelaces.

And chocolate dripping down your face.

My favorite thing about being a kid on summer vacation was the freedom.

You could sleep until noon. Play hide and seek with your neighborhood friends. Splash around in the community pool.

No one would make you get out to do your homework.

When it got really hot, you would cool off with a chilly chocolate fudgsicle. To me, fudgsicles are the epitome of summer.

Fudgsicles, fresh watermelon, barbecues, and flip flops.

But mostly, fudgsicles.

Even as a young child, I was all about the chocolate.

A few days ago, I broke out the popsicle makers for the first time this summer, christening them with a healthy version of my beloved childhood chocolate fudgsicles.

Unlike traditional fudgsicles (which have been discontinued), this version contains no high fructose corn syrup, no dairy, and no hard-to-pronounce processed ingredients.

With just 40 calories and no cholesterol, these healthy chocolate fudgsicles can be completely free of added sugar.

But just like the packaged pops, they are creamy and chocolatey and delicious.

Emphasis on delicious.

Healthy Popsicle Ingredients

Ingredients for homemade fudgsicles

You only need four ingredients to make the popsicles.

The recipe calls for cocoa powder, milk of choice, sweetener of choice, a pinch of salt, and two ripe bananas. There is also a version below without banana.

Feel free to use any milk of choice. For the richest, most decadent pops with the creamiest texture, go with full fat canned coconut milk.

Liquid sweeteners, such as pure maple syrup, honey, or agave, work well. You can also choose granulated sugar, coconut sugar, or xylitol for added sugar free popsicles.

Both unsweetened cocoa powder and sweetened hot chocolate mix are fine to use.

If you are a chocolate peanut butter fan, I highly recommend blending in two tablespoons of peanut butter or almond butter. The healthy chocolate fudgsicles will taste like a frozen Reese’s peanut butter cup!

Healthy chocolate fudgsicles with no banana

For those who do not like banana, you can make your own banana free chocolate popsicles by combining the following ingredients.

Stir together one cup of coconut milk, a tablespoon of cocoa powder, three tablespoons of melted chocolate chips, three tablespoons sweetener of choice, a pinch of salt, and an optional fourth teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.

Pour into popsicle molds, and freeze. Enjoy cold, straight from the freezer.

How to make healthy chocolate fudgsicles

Start by gathering your popsicle molds and sticks.

Peel the bananas, then add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor.

Blend until completely smooth.

Pour the dark chocolate mixture into the popsicle molds or into paper cups. Insert the popsicle sticks now, or freeze the molds for a half hour for sticks that will stay straight.

Once frozen, run the popsicle molds under room temperature or slightly warm water for about twenty seconds, then gently twist to remove the chocolate popsicles from their containers.

Store leftover pops in the freezer so they do not melt.

Tips and tricks for making popsicles at home

If you do not own popsicle molds or popsicle sticks, just use paper cups instead. Insert a small spoon into the chocolate before freezing.

Wooden popsicle sticks are readily available at most craft stores and some grocery stores. To get the sticks to stay upright and not move around, try freezing the popsicles for about half an hour. Insert the sticks when the pops are firm but not yet hard.

To remove chocolate popsicles that refuse to budge from their containers, run them under room temperature water for about twenty seconds, then gently twist the popsicle sticks to loosen. Repeat if necessary.
