Dairy-free Fudgesicles

Avocados replace the dairy in this family-friendly treat.

Recipe for a homemade chocolate fudgesicle

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Serves 6

Ingredients

2 ripe avocados, peeled and diced

2/3 cup cocoa powder

½ cup maple syrup

½ cup full-fat coconut milk

¼ tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. vanilla extract

¼ tsp. sea salt

1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until completely smooth. You may need to stop the processor and scrape the sides with a rubber spatula to incorporate all ingredients.

2. Spoon the fudgesicle mixture into a popsicle mold. Tap the molds gently on the counter to ensure the molds are filled and to avoid air pockets.

3. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 3 hours, or until completely set.

4. When frozen, thaw the popsicles 5 to 8 minutes, or run the molds under hot water to release the fudgesicles.
