​Do your kids scream for ice cream??

Do you scream for health? If your little ones - or maybe even YOU - have an obsession with chilled deserts this recipe is absolutely sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! You won’t be able to tell that these are a treat made to boost your health!

This is the ultimate fudgesicle recipe to stay fit for the season and feel guilt-free about giving your kiddos a sweet treat as a snack!

Let’s take a look at how this delectable cool treat is done, so you can prepare it yourself anytime.

​What’s Different about this Fudgesicle Recipe??

There are plenty of “healthy ice creams” and “sugar-free popsicles” that seem to lack something.

First, you want a healthy sweetener, and not all sweeteners in these desserts actually qualify as healthy.

I organic honey, a healthy alternative for the sweetener. You can also use Stevia or monk fruit which is naturally sweet and packed with a lot of nutrients. I recommend using raw, organic honey because the heating process removes vital anti-oxidants.

Monk fruit is safe for diabetes as it is a natural sweetener that doesn’t affect blood glucose levels.  

Whichever one you choose, you get to have the sweetness, without the sugar rush.

​Chocolate Plus Protein and Fiber Equals The Perfect Treat

Next, I use a high-quality protein powder made by Shaklee. You can use different flavors if you’d like, but what I love about Shaklee Protein powder is that it is packed with - yes, you guessed it - protein. It’s also got fiber, essential minerals, and vitamins. Plus, the flavor is wonderful!  

Then I include nut milk which is another excellent source of protein. In this fudgesicle recipe, I use coconut milk which is full of
healthy healing fats, especially medium chain fatty acids. Coconut milk also contains magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, folate, potassium, selenium, and iron.

You can use other types of nut milk such as cashew or almond and you can get those with or without sugar and with or without added flavor.

Okay, can’t forget the cacao powder. Now this one is also important. You want to use the organic cacao powder if you can because this has antioxidant flavanols, fiber, magnesium and vitamin C.

Last but not least, I use a healthy base, banana. You can add additional fruits to this, experiment and see what you like.

You can also add in chia seed or other healthy nuts to this recipe to give it even greater nutritional value.

So you see, it’s not just a tasty frozen treat, this recipe was put together to fill you up and satisfy your sweet tooth. No guilt, no fear. Foods as God intended them to be. Whole, natural and close to the source as possible.

Now that’s a reason to scream for ice cream!

This looks delicious. I like to make homemade “pops” instead of buying anything like it. How much cocoa powder do you use? I don’t see an amount listed.
Thanks!
