I don’t remember the first time I ever tried a fudge pop, but they’ve always been a classic favorite. Same with pudding pops. I would trade a thousand licks for a box of icy, chocolate popsicles. And I’d still want more.
And then you grow up and look at the ingredients on the package and realize that half the stuff in popsicles is kind of scary. There’s no fudge, there’s no pudding. Trickery. So I made this batch vegan-style. They turned out rich and creamy with a deep chocolate flavor. I added vegan chocolate chips for a little extra texture. The end result was surprisingly good, very solid. In the words of my husband, “a lot better than I thought they’d be.” I like winning.
Ingredients: (makes 4 popsicles)
8 oz coconut milk
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup agave nectar
Directions: Add all ingredients to a blender and blend. If the mixture is too thick, thin it with more coconut milk or a splash of water.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 2 hours until solid. If they’re easy to pull out, they’re probably good and frozen.
