Avocado Cocoa “Fudgsicle” Pops

This actually wasn’t the recipe I was planning on sharing with you today. But I got so excited when I tried them that I just had to post it asap! I don’t even like fudgsicles, but these were delicious! It’s another beautiful day out, and perfect for a healthy frozen treat on the porch swing! It doesn’t even matter if my pop melts (if I have a bowl), because it turns into a tasty chocolate pudding. I don’t even like chocolate pudding either! But I like this kind!

Canada day is coming up! In 2 days to be exact. And it’s Canada’s 150th birthday, so I’m sure the fireworks will be incredible! I plan on making some fancy canada-colored alcoholic beverages (such as this beautiful raspberry pomegranate cocktail) and some fun jello shots, and of course since I’m all about popsicles lately, I might make some of these lovely berry champagne popsicles! Both those linked recipes have a lot of similar ingredients, so I’ll be able to save money if I use the same champagne and berries for each one! My boyfriend works, but he doesn’t much care for champagne and berries anyways. I plan to enjoy them with my bff Emma! And us, along with my mom and my brother will probably all cram in the car and find a little spot to enjoy the fireworks away from all the crazy teenage drunks (although we’ll probably be a bit tipsy ourselves with all this champagne, minus my mother who will drive). What are your Canada Day plans?

Enough about Canada Day, and back to these fudgsicles. My recipe only made 3 popsicles (as shown), Feel free to double or triple the recipe to make more! I always make small recipes because I’m usually the only one who eats the end product, so I don’t want to make large amounts and have any go to waste. But my recipes are easily multiplied, or you can make the same amount I do if you’re just making them for yourself like me! I hope you enjoy these fudgsicle pops, and I also hope you have a fantastic Canada Day! Happy 150th, Canada!


Avocado Cocoa “Fudgsicles”

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Serves: 3
  • Yield: 3 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado // diced
  • 1/3 c plain greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 c chocolate almond milk
  • 1/2 of a dark chocolate bar (I usually like 80%-85%, but here I used 72%)
  • 2 packets of stevia
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Blend together the avocado, yogurt, cocoa, vanilla and almond milk.
  2. Fill your popsicle molds.
  3. If you want wooden popsicle sticks like mine, place a piece of plastic wrap large enough to cover all the molds over top of them. Pull tightly and secure with an elastic band. Cut little slits where your sticks will go. Slide your sticks down through the slits and into the popsicles.
  4. Place in the freezer overnight.
  5. Melt your dark chocolate in the microwave, starting with 30 seconds and then in 10-second increments, stirring in between.
  6. Remove your popsicles from their molds (they should slide out quite easily after a quick run under a hot tap).
  7. Lay out on a piece of parchment paper and drizzle on your dark chocolate.
  8. Place in the freezer on a piece of parchment for 5 minutes.
  9. Remove and repeat on other side.
  10. Return to the freezer for another 5 minutes before consuming.
  11. If not eating right away, wrap each popsicle in plastic wrap to avoid freezer-burn (they won't fit back in their molds after drizzling in chocolate) and store in the freezer until ready to eat.
  12. Enjoy!
