Crazy life has been taking me away from blog life lately. I have so many recipes I can’t wait to share, but just know that I am going to keep them coming. The past few weeks have been filled with doctor appointments. Figuring out “the end” of my Lyme treatment seems to be the most complicated. I’ve improved so much but can’t get over that last hump for a long time now. As my Doctor put it, I am running a race; I just don’t know how long it is yet. I hope it’s a 5k and not a marathon.
On a total happy note, fudge pops make everything better. Fudge pops are a summer staple. I love reinventing those old school childhood treats into something healthy you can happily indulge in, sans guilt. The best part about these fudge pops is that they contain 4 ingredients. Yup, 4 simple ingredients, blend, freeze, and you have the most amazing fudgesicles you’ve ever had.
These fudge pops are made with one can of full fat coconut milk, 8 dates for sweetness, half a cup of raw cacao powder, and a teaspoon of vanilla. That’s it! Did I mention they are sugar free? The dates give them just the right amount of sweetness while filling them with fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Blend until super smooth; pour into ice pop molds and in the freezer they go! Try not to pace the kitchen waiting for them to freeze, sticking your finger in every few minutes to check like I do. They do take a few hours to freeze. I know from experience, they are so worth the wait.
I hope these fudge pops keep you nice and cool during these hot summer days. They certainly have been doing the trick for me!
