Every few minutes, my dad kept opening the fridge and asking, "Sadie, when will those fudge pops be ready?" When they were finally done freezing and he got one, he was the happiest person on earth.
So was I, when I took a huge bite out of his. ;) Unlike the actual Fudgsicle, these fudge pops are preservative-free (I mean, who would need that stuff to make them last, these disappear in one minute in my house!), artificial color and flavor-free, and vegan! I thoroughly agree with the mnemonic "Every Good Boy (and girl) Deserves (a) Fudge (pop)!
Makes about 8 popsicles (the amount depends on the size of your mold; my medium-sized molds made 8).
2 ripe bananas
½ cup almond butter
½ cup cacao powder
1 cup almond milk
3 tsp honey
8 drops liquid stevia (Optional: you can omit the stevia and just add another tsp honey.)
2½ tsp instant coffee or espresso powder (You can omit this to make your fudge pops non-mocha and just chocolate if you prefer, but just know it will make them a lot sweeter, because the coffee is bitter.)
1. Blend all of the ingredients together in a high speed blender until there are no lumps.
2. Pour the mixture into a popsicle mold, then place a wooden popsicle stick or your mold's lid into each mold.
3. Place the mold in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
4. Run your mold under warm water for about a minute, then remove popsicles and enjoy!
