My kids (all three of them :-)) love chocolate and popsicles….
….so I’m always searching for a good recipe that combines the two. Most that I’ve found have had either too much sugar or some other ingredient that I’ve found disagreeable for our allergy issues…
…so, as with most things, I decided to make my own!
I can be so cheap when it comes to either paying for something or making it myself. I absolutely refuse to buy store-bought kale chips…instead I indulge in these crispy BBQ treats. I scoff at the dairy-free ice cream aisle…I came up with this creamy delight to quell that desire. I turn my nose up at the tortilla section. (I make these delicious babies instead.) Out of necessity is born creation…at least that’s the case with me…which brings us to today’s saliva-inducing dream!
Rich, chocolaty, perfectly sweet…these will knock your socks off, and they are super easy to make!!
- 1 ripe avocado
- ¼ c. cocoa powder
- ½ c. dairy-free milk, coconut water, or water
- 3 T. honey or maple syrup
- 1 t. vanilla
- pinch salt
- Process all the ingredients until very smooth (add in a splash or two more of liquid if needed).
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid (4-6 hours). (I got 3 pudding pops, but it will depend on how big your molds are.)
Dairy-free with the good fat from avocado, these are a healthy treat that taste sinfully good!
What is your favorite frozen treat?
Pudding pops are right up there on my list, along with creamsicles and drumsticks (the chocolate and peanut covered ice cream in a cone).
