It’s been hot outside (for Wisconsin anyway) and who doesn’t want to cool off with healthy fudge pops? Whatever you may call them, they are creamy and delicious and perfect for a warm day. Even if you crave ice cream these really hit the spot.

Healthy Fudge Pops
These healthy fudge pops taste pretty awesome and have healthy ingredients as well. Take a look at what is in the traditional “fudgesicle”. Not healthy at all. Some things that shouldn’t be entering the body are corn syrup solids, high fructose corn syrup, or whatever polysorbate 80 is.
There are always other options to make a tasty unhealthy treat into a healthy one. This recipe for healthy fudge pops I adapted from The Creekside Cook.
Put everything in a blender and blend. Pour into popsicle molds. This recipe made about five total in my molds. It’s that simple. If you need to get your hands on some really cool molds, check out Zoku molds.
Benefits: Coconut milk contains healthy fatty acids and is safe for dairy sensitive folks. A little honey and cocoa powder are nothing to get too excited about. Honey beats the known terrible for you high fructose corn syrup any day. Cocoa powder has minerals including iron. There are no nasty ingredients.
Fresh Flavor: Healthy fudge pops made with coconut milk are a healthy option for creamy frozen treat.
