Healthy Fudgesicle Recipe

For the first two years that I lived in my new house, the central air conditioner died a slow death.

It would keep certain parts of the house cool, but the room that made the most sense for my daycare kids to eat lunch and nap could get HOT. Like 80ºF hot.

Replacing the air conditioner was not in the renovation budget (there were other things that had to be dealt with first) so we had to deal with it the best we could with tower fans and cool treats.

The last thing any mom wants to do is hand their kids a sugar-filled dessert in the middle of the afternoon, but making our own sugar-free popsicles was a great way to get the kids cooled off and it had the sneaky hidden bonus of getting some extra protein into their days.

These homemade fudgesicles taste like the real deal. A delicious creamy, chocolate popsicle that doesn’t melt too fast – and you can customize your popsicles with different shaped molds, adding a fruit puree, or dipping in some sprinkles or nuts!

What I loved about these popsicles:

  • sugar-free
  • great source of protein
  • healthy dessert replacement
  • they don’t melt quickly – they slowly soften before they get messy so kids have plenty of time to finish them before any messes start
  • 3-ingredients and low-prep – including being no-cook
  • kids can help make them

This healthy fudgesicle recipe is a great way to stick to your own healthy eating goals while indulging in a delicious treat, and you can even swap the cocoa powder called for in the recipe with a chocolate protein powder if you want an extra hit of protein in your day. I love being able to say yes to dessert while supporting my family’s healthy eating goals.

It’s super simple and quick to make, too – just throw all of the ingredients in a blender and then pour into your popsicle mold. Easy peasy.
