Fudgesicles are the perfect cold, rich and chocolately summer treat! As a kid, I always opted for the fudgesicles over the popsicles. I mean, who wants fruit over chocolate? C’mon! Although they might seem like an innocent treat, store-bought fudgesicles and chocolate popsicles are loaded with some scary stuff, so making a homemade version is a much better option and I’m pretty sure these Homemade Fudgesicles could trick any kid or adult willing to give them a try.
Look, I’m not trying to be the bearer of bad news, but if you have actually read the ingredients label on a classic Fudgsicle label, I know you would agree with me. Although they might be “100 calories”, with ingredients like “sugar, corn syrup solids, high fructose corn syrup, maled barley extract and polysorbate” just to name a few, you can understand that the ingredients themselves are much more important that any calorie content a food might contain! As a rule of thumb, you should never eat something with ingredients that you don’t understand! If you wouldn’t use it in your kitchen, why would you allow a factory to use it for you?
This Homemade Fudgesicle recipe is dead simple, kids could even make it. Made with coconut milk and sweetened naturally with honey, these homemade fudgesicles are dairy-free, gluten-free and full of flavour making them a guilt-free summer delight.
I sweetened these homemade fudgesicles with honey, but maple syrup or stevia would work well too.
