These super simple chocolate Fudgesicles are so rich and creamy, but made without any dairy at all! Made simply with only a handful of ingredients these naturally sweetened popsicles will be loved by both kids and adults alike.
Dairy-Free Chocolate Fudgesicles
These simple but delicious Fudgesicles are made with coconut milk and chocolate and require no special machine to make them other than a blender and a popsicle mold. They’re creamy and delicious. But best of all there is a hidden nutritional component to it! You can optionally add either a protein powder of choice or collage protein to your fudgesicle to give it super powers!
Ingredients needed for Healthy Fudgesicles
- Coconut milk
- Dark chocolate chips (dairy-free, if you need it)
- Protein powder of choice or Collagen Peptides
- Vanilla Extract
- Maple syrup
How to Easily Get Popsicles Out of the Mold
There are a few tricks you can use to get popsicles out of the molds but the easier one I’ve tried so far is to stick the popsicle mold in a big bowl of hot water. Place the entire mold inside of the water, making sure though not to get any of the water inside of the popsicles. Leave it in there for about 30 seconds and remove. Then all of the popsicles should easily pop out! If you have individual molds than you can stick each popsicle in a tall glass of hot water.

Do these taste like coconut? If so have you tried with full fat milk?
No! But you can use a different milk.

Can you use Chocolate Coconut Milk? I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this in stores
Worth trying anyways!
I’ve never tried it with chocolate coconut milk! What have you seen in stores, Healthy Protein Fudgsicles?
Look great and healthy. I’m sure these would work out with plant based protein powder. Pinned!
Thanks Olena! 🙂
These are right up my alley! They look SO delicious and refreshing!
Can I just omit protein powder or sub gelatin?
I am going to try with almond milk and see if that works.
Almond milk is not full-fat, so it may not be quite as creamy. Let me know how it goes!
1/3 Cup Chocolate Chocolate?? Powder? Melted solid chocolate? Going to try with pea powder to make diary free!
Oops! Fixed that! 1/3 cup chocolate, melted.
I have to get me some popsicle molds and EXPERIMENT!!! my favorite ice cream flavor was by far mint chocolate chip, but I did love that cookie dough as well!
LOVING these!! I am totally going to be making these this summer!
These look fantastic, I love fudgesicles! I made them last summer with coconut milk but I didn’t think of putting protein powder in them! What an awesome idea!
Is this 1/3 cup dark chocolate a POWDER or chocolate bar?
hi Lexi, it looks perfect! please can you tell me how much is one can of coconut milk? thank you!
Would I be able to use chocolate protein powder instead of melting chocolate?
Part of the creaminess comes from the chocolate coconut milk mixture so I wouldn’t omit the step.You can use chocolate protein though, instead of natural.
I was excited about this because the icons showed dairy free, but the protein suggested is whey protein. Has anyone tried hemp protein to see if it affects the taste?
You sub a vegan protein to make it fully dairy-free.
The fact that these are made from healthy ingredients just blows my mind! It’s a great excuse for me to indulge more chocolate without making me feel guilty. 😉
So cool, no ice cream maker needed and love the extra protein in these!
TOTALLY MAKING THESE. Is Mikey your hand model!? #werkit
You know it! He was mad I didn’t get all of him in it.
