Protein Fudgsicles

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.

    Summertime means it’s popsicle season! Are you a chai fan like I am? These 4-ingredient chai popsicles are creamy, flavorful, and the perfect summer cool down treat! Not much is better than cooling down outside with a delicious, creamy popsicle that’s packed with flavor while also having none of the added refined sugars that goes into conventional store-bought popsicles. Plus, it’s made with only FOUR ingredients, and is SO easy to make. 

    What is Chai spice?

    A chai spice is a blend of warm spices. The ingredients can vary but here is what I use in mine:

    • Cardamon
    • Allpice
    • Cinnamon
    • Cloves
    • Ginger

    For this recipe you’ll make a slightly larger amount of chia spice than you’ll need, but you can store the rest to use for various recipes that call for a Chai Spice blend. It will keep for up to a year in your cabinet, assuming the spices you are starting with are fresh.

    It’s so simple to make these Chai spice popsicles. There is no cooking required at all. Simply: Blend, pour, freeze, devour. The popsicles will have a natural separation which will give you a total flavor experience with each bite! And they look so beautiful.
