Healthier 4 Ingredient Homemade Fudgsicles. A dairy-free and vegan dessert, these healthier old-school treat are perfect for summer snacks, dessert, and come together in about 10 minutes before freezing.
These Fudgsicles are a serious throwback for me. I adored them as a child and have been known to purchase them from the grocery store. BUT, I wanted to find a way to make a quick, healthier version at home.
A dairy-free and vegan dessert, these fudge pops maintain the chewy texture I’m used to, but without much guilt. This fudgsicle recipe is refined sugar-free making it perfect for a family treat.
What is a fudgsicle made out of?
This recipe is made from full-fat coconut milk, chopped up dark chocolate, maple syrup (just a touch) and cocoa powder. All natural, all delicious.
The brand name stuff has milk, sugar (in multiple forms), and a few food-safe chemicals to keep the fudgsicles soft.
It’s important to use the full-fat coconut milk as the higher fat content is what keeps the fudgsicles soft and chewy, if any other milk or milk alternatives are used, use a full fat version to keep the fudgsicles soft and chewy.
More frozen vegan dessert ideas:
I used a popsicle mould like this version, however the version I’ve linked to here is better than mine as you can take out one popsicle or fudgsicle at a time. With mine, I have to pull the entire mould out and run most of the moulds under water to release versus just the ones I need. I also like that this version has reusable popsicle sticks.
We’ve made these Fudgsicles countless times and I’m hoping to make more vegan flavoured ones this Summer. Pina Colada is calling my name for sure!
